Having a Word of the Year is such a great way to plan out your year and know how you want to spend it, without being so specific that you set yourself up for failure straight away. It’s inspiring, but not stressful; encouraging, and yet completely freeing.
I want a way to measure my personal growth, and to have some sort of end game to aim towards, which is why I have chosen to set myself a Word of the Year. As soon as I made this decision, the word I have chosen came to my mind instantly. It was the first one I thought of, and I believe it’s perfect for how I want to spend 2018: flourish.
It’s not such an obscure word that I am hazy about its definition, nor is it so common to me that it feels too average to define my whole year. Plus, its definition is exactly how I plan to spend the next 12 months: to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way. By the end of 2018, I want to be three times the person I am now.
I want to grow, evolve, learn, and absorb as much of life as I can. I want to fill each day with even more happiness and positivity than I have now, if that’s possible.
I am honestly taking this as a sign that 2018 is going to be the year that I am hoping for. The future is unpredictable, but I am going to pave it in the direction I wish for it to go as much as I possibly can. Wish me Good luck.
I write a lot, which keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. There is always something to write about, always a new story to craft. Not writing, for me, is like trying to hold back a sneeze. Learning to write was the most powerful influence in my life. I can still remember the awe I felt when I realized I could put real words onto paper and tell out a story. From that first ‘a-ha’ moment I knew I wanted to write.
