So 2017 is upon us and here’s to not only hoping for a great year but actually making it a great year. For the last couple of years, I’ve been incorporating a word to into my yearly plan. Not just any word but a word that will describe how I’m going to succeed in the next 12 months. Last year I shared my word here on the blog. I picked the word “go” because I eagerly wanted to move forward and GO do stuff – not just talk about it. I’m excited to share my 2017 word of the year with you.
This year’s word is: MANIFEST.
I like that word a lot. According the Dictionary.com, manifest is a display or show (a quality or feeling) by one’s acts or appearance; demonstrate. This year, my goal is to manifest professional accomplishments by demonstrating success and confidence in everything I do. I wholeheartedly believe that what you put into the universe, is what you will receive back from it. This can be in a form of meditation, prayer or the actions in your daily life.
I chose my word of the year simply because of where I am today. Last year was a lot of trial and error. This year is all about putting 2016’s life lessons into action and manifesting those lessons into sweet reality. As I work towards this goal, I know a lot of hard work, dedication and some sacrifice will have to be given. And you know what? I’m OK with that.
I’m so happy to start 2017 with a great support system who will do nothing but encourage me to manifest the life I want to live and for that, I’m thankful. Choosing a word of the year isn’t necessary for the start of a new year but it sure is helpful for me. If you’re not into tons of unrealistic resolutions, I’d encourage you to find a word that best suits the life you’d like to live in 2017. Make it fun, make it inspirational but most importantly, make it yours.
Happy New Year!
