If the first month and a half is any indication of what 2017 will be like for me, I have one word to sum it up: BUSY! My theme this year seems to be parties and travel. Parties because I have several work events and one of my really close friends is getting married. I’m the maid of honor, so there’s her bridal shower and of course the bachelorette which I can’t wait for. Party and travel aren’t a bad theme, so I’ll go with it.
I thought a LOT about what my word for 2017 should be and the same word kept popping into my mind. However, I wasn’t sure it was a “good enough” word, so I decided to keep thinking. So two months later, the word is still with me and I’ve just accepted it. But in the meantime, I’ve also picked up another word. So I have two words for 2017.
Words for 2017
The word that would not leave my head is “READY”. Why read? Well as I said early, 2017 has already proven to be very busy for me. So I want to be READY for anything. Ready for new opportunities to pop up, ready to meet new people, ready to grow, READY TO MAKE MORE MONEY and ready for love.
My other word for 2017 is “Thrive”. By thriving I intend “to grow, to flourish, to prosper, to succeed“. The past couple years have definitely been lessons in humility, faith, and strength. This is my year to take the lessons that I learned from that difficult time in my life and to work towards growing and flourishing in both my personal and professional lives.
Song for 2017
Since I’ll be partying throughout the year, my party song for the year goes to Meek Mill with his song “Litty”. This song instantly puts me in a feel-good, hype mood. You can listen to the track below.
Mantra for 2017
My mantra is something I am sure I will be repeating to myself a lot this year. But I am all about overcoming fears and stepping outside of my comfort zone.
So do you have a word or mantra for 2017? What is it?
