I recently read a Levo League article that bid the question “What is your word for 2017?” And challenged readers to choose their word for 2017. Initially it seems like such an easy question, but the more I reflected on past years and my goals for this year, I found it quite difficult. This year I want to be healthy, cultured, and, above all, happy.
After lots of pondering, I finally landed on my word for 2017: Positivity.
I’m a cynical person by nature, and I realize the damage that my cynicism does to everyone around me and myself. This is why I’ve decided that this year is going to be different. My goal is to make positivity a habit so that negative thoughts cross my mind less often and, eventually, eliminate negativity all together. The past few years took a toll on my mental health and I currently am having a hard time figuring out my path/purpose in life which has been particularly challenging for me in terms of positivity. However, practicing gratitude daily, getting back in touch with my faith, and are just a few ways I am taking action.
I’d love to you what your word is for 2017. Comment below and let’s inspire each other!
