Have you heard about choosing a theme word for your year? Wondering what the heck a theme word is if you need one and why? This is the post for you. So, let’s get right to it and dig into this mysterious idea of a theme word.
What is a theme word?
It is a word that you choose with the intention of focusing on what that word means to you in the upcoming year. I have also heard them referred to as focus, guiding or soul words.
Do I need one & why?
Obviously, Theme words are optional. Not everyone is into them and that is okay. However, there are benefits to choosing a theme word. Having a theme for anything helps you to narrow in and focus on what needs to be done.
A theme word can be beneficial to your goal setting process. It can also help you to make choices throughout the year. For example, if your theme word is balance, you probably chose it because things are out of balance for you and you want to make balance a part of your life. As you set your goal for the year you can hone in on what balance looks like to you and make your goals and choices revolve around creating balance in all areas of your life. If you receive a job offer, opportunity or idea later in the year you can evaluate it based on your theme word and make the best choice for you and your goal of balance.
One thing to keep in mind about these words is that they can change before the year is up and you can choose a theme word at any time. Check out my personal story of how my theme word changed for 2018 in my Video About Theme Words
It is okay to readjust as the year goes along and pick a new word if the old one is no longer relevant to you.
Because when it comes right down to it, a theme word is all about you, what you want for your life and what is important to you. Just taking time to figure that out and selecting a focus word can give you so much clarity.

How do I choose a theme word?
Don’t make it too complicated. Start by thinking about what is important to you right now. What do you want more of or less of in the coming year? Sit down and spend some time praying or reflecting on the things that matter to you, your goals, and what you want from your life.
Grab a sheet of paper and jot down all of the things that are important to you this year. List what you want to happen this year. Write out how you want to feel. What does your ideal day look like?.
After you have dumped all of your thoughts on paper it is time to look for a common theme in the words you wrote. Putting it down on paper is a great way to see the possible connections between the things that you want.
