It’s here! 2017 is here! After all that happened in 2016, I think the majority of us were ready for a fresh start. When I sat down to choose my word for 2017, I anticipated a grueling process. I’d been thinking it over casually for the last few days and had no idea what I was going to choose. Then when I sat down to write this post…it just happened!
Last year, my word for the year was curate. I was taking on way too many unrelated projects that didn’t really make sense. I got rid of lots of unnecessary things in my life, and my word of the year really guided me through the process. Admittedly, I have added a few new projects since then but they’re more closely connected instead of having three totally different career paths.
ANYWHO – I’ve chosen a word for this year….cultivate. It kind of popped into my head because it’s pretty similar to curate. Then when I did a quick dictionary search, I realized it was straight up perfect for where I’m going this year. In all aspects of my life, I want to cultivate.

I love that the four definitions of cultivate cover the aspects of my life that I’m really hoping to further in 2017 – specifically my blog, social media and personal relationships. In addition to pageview and social media follower growth, I really want to make sure I’m engaging more with those followers. In addition, I want to continue to cultivate all of my relationships and strengthen them – both online and IRL.
