My word for 2017

Coming up with a word for the year ahead is harder than you think.

I have been doing this for the past few years and each time I have chosen a word and thought I knew what it was going to mean for the year, it then turned out completely different!

Take last year’s word, Purpose. As I explained in my last post, this word took on a completely different meaning to what I thought it would. Rather than finding my purpose outside the home, it actually reinforced my needs and responsibilities at home.

So this years word I have thought long and hard about, trying to encompass every meaning it could mean to me but I wanted a word that captured my determination to take control of my life and steer it in the direction I want it to go.

My word for 2017 is:

This is the word that completely encapsulates my ethos for the year ahead.

I will strive forward, achieve my goals and be the best me for my family, friends and of course me!
