My Word for 2017

My word for 2017 -- LEAN.Every year, my everyone in my family chooses a word to live into for the coming year.  This replaced my New Year’s Resolutions almost a decade ago.  After I started this podcast, I have shared my word with you.

2016 was my year of Appreciation.  I wrote letters to a number of people, letting them know how much I appreciated them in my life.  I took a number of people out to lunch and did the same thing.

One person has since died.  I treasure the fact that I had the chance of sharing my deep appreciation for him with him.  So, yes, my word is important to me.

I put my word at the top of the calendar.  So, when I open my schedule for the day, there it is, first thing in the morning.  I am intentional about choosing it.  And I am intentional in honoring that word throughout the year.

This year, my word is LEAN.  It has a dual meaning for me.  In this week’s Podcast, I share why I chose that word and why it is important to me (and I give you a rundown of all my other words in past years).

What’s YOUR word?
