One Little Word: Interabang


My decision to use the word “Interabang” as one of my four little words for the year was not made on a whim. I put a lot of thought into what this year needed to be for me. This year needs to be incredible and I have a lot of huge goals to fill it with. My attitude toward this year is very positive, and my expectations are quite lofty. This year is going to reflect my soul 100% and there are no excuses. I needed a word that expressed the passion and fervor in which I plan to attack every aspect of my life. The moment I saw the word Interabang, I fell in love with it. As my list became smaller and smaller, the word continued to stand out, and as was the case with the other three words that I am also using, I just couldn’t imagine crossing it off.

The word Interabang consists of two parts: one part exclamation and one part inquisitive, one part exclamatory, and it embraces everything that is uniquely me. As an artist and designer, I am characteristically curious. I question everything from how things work to why people do the things that they do. At my best, I am immensely passionate about everything that I like to do and about my opinions on so many subjects. I smile; I laugh; I am opinionated as all hell! I strive to live boldly and intentionally. I struggle toward perfection no matter how short I fall and then I ask why I came short and how I can do better next time.

In the past few years, I have noticed a dramatic decline of the intensity in which I live my life. As I have struggled with weight problems related to thyroid issues, depression related to post-traumatic stress, and finding a balance between being financial stable and doing what I love, I have somehow lost touch with my curiosity and my passion. My intentions have remained, but the energy to complete anything has faded to a dim smolder. It pains me greatly when I compare the me that I was and still want to be to the me that I am now. This year I want all of that to change. My aspiration is to get back my passion and excitement for life, and Interabang radiates all of these expectations.

What are your words for this year? Do you have any themes or expectations for this year that you would like to share? I’d love to hear!

Stay tuned for more on my other three words. I will also be blogging more in depth about my plans for this upcoming year, some projects that I am planning, and a book review here shortly.

I hope you all enjoy your week! Loves!!!
