December Reflections - 2016

December 31 - My Word for 2017

For the past three years I've chosen a "word" to help guide me through the year.  That's when I started doing the vision cards (thanks Jamie Ridler) as well.  The first year it was "Change."  The next year it was "Courage."  This year was "Focus."

I wrote about these cards here and wore the word in a locket around my neck most days:

Vision Cards
The locket with my word
For this year, I have made these cards:

and have chosen the word "Believe" as my guiding word for the year.  

I'm not a fan of Josh Groban but these words from the song "Believe" in the movie "The Polar Express" seem to fit what I am trying to embody this year.

Believe in what your heart is saying
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste
There's so much to celebrate
Believe in what you feel inside
And give your dreams the wings to fly
You have everything you need
If you just believe.

I'll write another message on a slip of paper and keep it in the locket to remind me to believe in myself and my goals.  

And so we've come to the end of another year.  Hope yours was a good one, and if not, that 2017 holds magic and wonder for you.  Happy New Year!


  1. I really like the idea of keeping your word in a locket. That's very cool.
    Believe is a good word to hold fast to in this coming year.
    Happy New Year Janet!
