How I’m setting intentions for my year in Costa Rica

Last Thursday, in the middle of a -28°C night, I finished packing my suitcases, braved the snow storm that was raging over Montreal and drove to the airport. Oh man, it felt good to leave my winter coat and boots with my parents at the airport. I certainly won’t be needing those for a while ! (Talking about the winter clothes here.. not my parents obviously -_-)


While I was sitting on the plane that was taking me to Costa Rica, I could not help but feel anxious and wonder what my life would look like for the next year. It’s never easy to leave everything behind and start from scratch in a different country in a language you barely understand not to mentions speak. I know it’s the career path that I chose, and it’s not my first time working abroad, but I thought it would get easier each time. And well, it doesn’t really.

At that point, the only thing that I knew for sure was that I would be working in San José in the legal department of a local NGO defending victims of human trafficking. That’s it. That was my only certainty. All the rest was yet to be written and as I was flying over the clouds, I let my imagination run wild. And that’s when I remembered this quote by Wayne Dyer : “Our intention creates our reality.”

This quote reminded me of how important intentions are. I took out my notebook and a pen and decided to take a moment to write down my intentions for that year I would spend in Costa Rica. This is a way of letting the Universe know what kind of experiences, persons, things, I would like to bring forth into my life and see manifest.

I ended up falling asleep on my first flight and didn’t get to write down those intentions, but I had a big ass layover in Texas. Everybody knows layovers are pretty annoying, but hey, on the bright side this gave me plenty of time to write down what I wished to manifest for this new chapter in my life.

My word of the year, and why you should have one too

At the beginning of a new year, I like to choose a general theme for the year to come by choosing one word – a word of the year. A word of the year is a world that resonates with you and that you choose to focus your energy on, to live by, to journal about, to apply in your decisions and to reflect on all year long. This is a little tradition that I’ve started a few years ago and I just love how having one word to describe what I wish to bring into my life helps me to have vision, and to stay true to my goals all year long. How about you, what’s your word of the year ?
