I've been talking about 2017 a lot lately. I know y'all are probably sick of hearing about it, and I promise that I'll continue doing my typical posts again next week, but I really wanted to share my word for 2017 with y'all!
I've noticed a lot of people choosing a mantra for 2017 - basically a quote that sets the tone for your year and motivates you to make 2017 great. However, I couldn't find a quote that suited the upcoming year, so I chose a single word instead: Determined.
I chose determination because I am determined to make 2017 the best year yet. I want to head into this year with the intent of doing well. I want to be driven, focused, and motivated throughout the year. I've always been somewhat of a procrastinator, but I am determined to manage my time well this year and complete everything that I need to do.
I am determined to complete my goals and resolutions, and become the best possible person I can be.
I am determined to do well in school, extracurricular, blogging, and all other aspects of my life.
I am determined to overlook the bad things, and focus on the positive side of life instead of the negative.
There are so many things that I am determined to do in 2017 - it's going to be the year of growth, development, and improvement, but also the year of success. I can already feel it!
I purchased this bracelet from MudLove so I could wear this daily and have a constant reminder of my goals for 2017. I find that I do well when I am constantly motivated and reminded to work hard, so hopefully this bracelet will help me do so! Not only is it really cute, but MudLove supports a great cause, too.
2017 has only just begun, but I can already tell that it is going to be an amazing year full of possibility and opportunity. I'm so excited for everything it has in store!
I encourage all of you to come up with a word for 2017! I feel like this word is really going to motivate me throughout the year and I'm glad to have it drive me to be the best version of myself.
What is your word for 2017? Leave a comment letting me know!
