Last year I started off the year with one word to focus on.
I really tried over the last year to be present. To put the phone down, to not let life's distractions take me away from my family, friends, and faith. While I was not 100% perfect, I was more mindful over the last year to be present. I will continue in 2017 to be more present in my life.
That brings me to 2017's word of the year.
This year I want to focus on what's important. It uses last year's word as a stepping stone in my life and gives me the platform to grow. I want to focus on my family, my family, my job, and my faith. HOWEVER at the same time I don't want to lose the progress I've made over the last year. Focus allows me to let update my goals as the year goes on and I grow in every part of my life.
Along with choosing a word, I also chose a verse that will help me focus on what is important throughout the year.
Today is the first page of a fresh new book. Now is your chance to write a masterpiece.
What is your word of the year?
I try to use my own pictures when available and if I do use other pictures I cite the source. There are times when I'm unable to find the source for the pictures I use. If you find that I have used one of yours please let me know, I will gladly give you credit!
