Cheers to 2016! As I look back on this past year I'm full of gratitude for the experiences and relationships that shaped me. With the new year ahead I'm taking a moment to reflect on 2015 and share my word of the year for 2016.
This past year was definitely a season of growth and change with a big move out of Chicago and new job in Grand Rapids, MI. Trust me these were not easy decisions, but my word of the year was brave and trust me that's exactly what I needed to focus on. Many of this year's past events have become stepping stones to new adventures that are already starting to shape 2016.
My word of the year for 2016 is intentional. I want to focus on being intentional with how I approach my relationships, actions and decisions. I'm incredibly lucky to have such amazing friends and family who read this blog and support my dreams and I realize that I need to be more intentional with how I maintain friendships and encourage growth. Planting those seeds for living my live with intention is exactly how I want to enter 2016. Being intentional is all about embracing life and waking up with a purpose and living in the moment. I'm determined to cherish this very moment as a gift instead of focusing on the past or worrying about the future.
I hope you have a Happy New Year filled with joy and intention.
