My 3 words for 2020

Last year, I decided not to choose my 3 words for 2019. I thought that this exercise wasn’t that useful. I realized now that I was wrong. They had a bigger impact than I thought, and it’s why I’m back at it for 2020.


The last years have not been gentle on me. It may be hard to believe if you’ve seen me at work, but my self-esteem and my self-confidence were badly hurt. Focusing on self-love means that I will learn to love myself (again).

It means, taking care of myself, mentally, but even more, physically. It is the one thing that could positively and hugely impact all other areas of my life. It’s about listening to myself and prioritizing my well-being. It’s also, if not more, about self-compassion.


Intentional mean done on purpose. It’s exactly what I want to do: be more deliberate with my actions. Trying to be less impulsive and more thoughtful. Planning more, and setting clear, written and specific goals. It’s also living according to my values.


Early in my life, I achieved most of the goals I had. Since I often feel like I’m a zombie, living day after day without a purpose. I don’t know what’s next for me, so I want to bring more meaning to my life. I want to have more meaningful relationships and fewer mindless activities. I want to live more. I want to be more.

Those words will guide me throughout the next year, helping me become my best self! In 2020, I will be more intentional, make my life more meaningful and focus on self-love… How about you? How do you envision and empower yourself for the next 365 days?

P.S.: my 2013 (first year, explaining where this concept comes from and why I decided to follow it), 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 words.
