My Word of the Year for 2017

This year has been amazing, from living on my own in New York City for the summer, starting my senior year of college, and making some big professional and personal changes all for the better.I love the idea of picking a word for the new year, instead of making a list of resolutions that you’ll forget about a month later. This helps me keep a single overall goal and frame of mind for the year. And it also serves as a gentle reminder and inspiration. For the past two years, my word has been “patience”. Unfortunately, this I made me discovered that I really have none so I have accepted the fact that I am just not a patient person. This year I have decided to go in an entirely new direction, and my word is trust.

2017 will be the year that I graduate college and step into the real world of “adulthood’. And although I am still not 100% sure what I want to be doing with my life, that’s totally fine with me, because I trust that everything is going to work out in the end. I know that I am going to end up at the right job, at the right place, and with the right people. I have trust in my future! I also have trust that what is meant to be will be.

I have trust in myself and that I will make the right decisions for my future. And I also trust in God and the Universe itself to lead me to the right path.

What is your word of the year?

    I love this, Tracie! Trust is such a great word for 2017. We could also use a little more of that in our lives. Mine is action, but trust definitely fits into there too. Happy New Year! ❤️
