"2017 is my year of __________"

A good friend put out a question on social media at the beginning of 2016 asking what word resonated with me when looking toward the new year. (Sound cool? Read on and write your own 2017 word below!) My word was radiance. In anticipation of getting married and embracing my new role as a wife and home owner, my heart was looking to shine and be seen and recognized as radiant. I found that my “year of radiance” perfectly defined the former months of 2016 during wedding season, however mid-summer I felt I was starting to fade. To be completely honest, I felt I was going through an internal crisis of knowing who I was called to be but not having the motivation to become that person – a kind, patient, thoughtful, healthy, happy and thriving human being. I certainly didn’t practice what I preached for fitness and often for nutrition. I felt eternally stuck in a “goal-setting” phase but never taking action or moving forward into the “go-getting” phase!
