Every year I always have goals, resolutions, things I want to do.... yada yada. Last year I "debuted" a Word of the Year, which was HOPE. You can read that post HERE and I do actually think that all year that word stuck with me, was in the back of my mind and I tried to hold my HOPE close to my heart. For the past week I have been thinking a lot about 2017 and how to move forward because I feel very much STUCK. And I found a word/theme for 2017 that truly encompass how I want this year to go. In ALL areas:
* Emotionally
* Physically
* Weight
* Relationship with my husband

So you guessed it, RESTORE. I mean just look at every word of that definition including synonyms and that describes it ALL. How will I do this? I am not really sure just yet to be honest but finding a common place/word/theme is a nice place to start I think. I think how I started the new year off... in bed, recovering from surgery wasn't helpful for me. There wasn't any BANG or any excitement but yet another moment of hardship. And as silly as it might sound I feel stuck right now, stuck in the losses of 2016, stuck not wanting to get out of bed. I have this word now, goals and what not but I can't seem to kick off how to get going.
Do you have a word or theme for 2017? How are you kicking off the New Year?

Hope you are feeling better.

I have A LOT going on right now so instead of a word I have gone with a mantra for the year and my mother in law got it on a beautiful bangle I wear each day. "She believed she could so she did" If I get overwhelmed I just look at that on my wrist and take a deep breath.

Initially, I thought my word was going to be HOPE, I get kept seeing it all over the place. In people's homes, FB, and even on a building while sitting at a red light recently. 2016 was a rough year, what felt like one of my roughest. Such a rollercoaster honestly.

This morning I actually heard an amazing inspiration video and it basically was about "what kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?"
So, combining you and Sarah. LEGACY would be my word and "What kind of legacy do I want to leave behind?" I turn 50 in 10 months and 9 days ..WOW, first time I said that out loud!

January is a big month of things looking back and I spent this past weekend thinking of the good and bad, the what if's etc....time to look forward and change that Legacy from this day forward; it is all that is in my control. "Don't look back, you are not going that way" is something a close friend gave me once for my room.
your RESTORE in 2017!
