My 2016 Word of the Year was BOOM. It meant to progress, grow, or flourish vigorously and man, let me tell you, I did just that last year! We welcomed our beautiful little girl to the family, my team crushed major goals this year in our business, and my relationships are tight.
For some reason, it took me longer to come up with a word this year. I think I was hoping for some epic rare word to find me and sound uber cool to everyone who knew it.
I almost selected the word, PILOT, but perhaps that word will be for another year because no matter what I did I kept coming back to this one:
being, existing, or occurring at this time;
I'm really focusing on some big goals this year after accomplishing so much in my business last year, but I've realized that something I am not 100% awesome at is being completely present in each moment. I tend to keep a racing mind which doesn't allow me to soak in the moments as they happen. I typically have my camera out ready to capture memories in the making rather than enjoying them as I'm making them.
So, my goal this year is to be present in everything I am doing. This will mean when I'm working my business, I'm 100% focused on it. When I'm playing with my kids, I'm not answering messages or checking in on my challengers. When I'm with my husband, I'm not texting or searching Pinterest.
I will be present.
