One Word

04 January, 2017

For the last couple of years, I have picked a word to focus on for the upcoming 365. Someone recently asked me what my word for 2016 had been and what my word for 2017 was going to be.

My answer was that for 2016 my word was trust and that I was toying around with making my word for 2017 selfish but I hadn’t totally committed to it yet and figured when the right word came my way I’d know it so I was keeping my options open.


I’m glad I kept my options open because my word for 2016 was actually not trust. Nope….that was the word I chose for 2015. And the word I had selected for 2016? Well….that word was selfish. So glad I paid attention to the intention I set forth for myself at the beginning of the year.

Good grief.

Anyway, when I did finally sit down and start to put some work into my word for 2017, I made a word cloud of all the words that came to mind when thinking about what I wanted to work towards in 2017……..
As I worked through my process, one thing started to jump out at me.......I am the happiest when I am learning new thing. I am the happiest when I am creating things for myself, friends and family. I am the happiest when I am able to think out side of the box and just experiment with thoughts, ideas, etc. 

So for 2017, I decided on the word create.

I want to create more art. I want to create more meaningful relationships with new and old friends. But more importantly, I want to make sure I spend more time this next year creating a life that I absolutely love and adore.
