Someone asked me what my word for 2016 could be the other day, and it took me until just now to realize that my word is Forward.
The last few years have been pretty tough, and the last year or so has brought a lot of changes, some of which have been hard to process. In order to make this year different than the past few years means I need to leave the past in the past and move forward. I need to learn from what has happened and use that knowledge for the future, but I shouldn’t dwell on it. Nor should I live in the past. Living in the past limits you from being able to enjoy the present. It limits your ability to create a future. It is time to move forward and be present in this moment.
How about you? What is your word for this year?
