2017 Word of the Year

A few years back my friend Alayna introduced me to word of the year, and I figured sure why not give it a try.  The idea is to select a word for the year that represents what you want to focus on throughout the year.

So my word for 2017 hit me hard but then I started second guessing my choice for a word.  It was one of the simplest words I have ever choose and I didn't know if I felt it.  Then I had a truly ah ha moment after a friend posted a touching blog piece on her cousin fighting to take his daughter home with him because the surrogate had changed her mind.  All thankfully worked out for my friends cousins but the video she shared about his struggles reminded me why I choose my word in the first place.

So I have been doing word of the year since 2009 and my word Strong and because of the instant need in my life for that word it propelled me to continue doing it every year with Organize, Remember, Brave, Faith, Happy, Sparkle, Create and bring me to my 2017 pick

Much thought and dwelling was spent on picking this years word.  More so than any other year I have picked a word but deep in my soul this needed to be my word for 2017.  So no matter where 2017 feels the need to take me my word has a path for me and I know deep down that it's what my year will truly need.
