It feels a bit surreal to be scooting right past middle of January already, but over the holiday break I set some time aside to focus on the year ahead and I'm so glad I did. Just as I've done over the last two years, I'm choosing a word for the year instead of making a bunch of personal and business resolutions.
My word for 2017 is OPEN.
I have a lot of hopes about how this word will manifest in my life. I hope it will inspire me to continue trying new things and to be open to new adventures. I also hope it will remind me that in order to open the door to something wonderful, oftentimes other doors need to close.
My biggest hope, however, is to simply be more open with how I carry myself, how I communicate, and how I approach the world around me. It may not always be easy, but I know committing to the word "open" this year will be worthwhile.
Tell me friends: have you picked your word for the year?
p.s. Here's a little inspiration from the gal who got this whole "one little word" thing started.
