2018 Word for the Year

I try to choose a word as my guide, my affirmation, my mantra each year, and this year I didn’t have to think twice because it popped into my head as soon as I thought about next year’s. It’s thrive. I want to thrive. Not just monetarily, which is the first thing that comes toContinue reading “2018 Word for the Year”
