Each member of the Kalico team chose one word to embrace for 2017. Have you ever done a word-for-the-year? The idea is to pick a theme word that will influence your self and/or others.
KIM’S WORD :: FOCUS
With so many different distractions coming from all different directions, be it business or personal, it is often easy to get lost and/or caught up in it all. I chose this word to remind myself that no matter what I am facing at the current time, the goal is to be focused on the present, as well as the end result.
LEIGH’S WORD :: RELEASE
I over-stress about things I both can and can’t control and that leads to an unhealthy cycle of mental exhaustion. When I get anxious or situations get too overwhelming, my goal is to allow myself to release what is worrying me or occupying my mind.
LAURA’S WORD :: ENLIVEN
When thinking about what I need for this year, I considered my desire to live life more fully, to embrace mundane tasks with vigor and to pursue a more healthy lifestyle with a positive attitude. I also want to take care that I bring people up in my relationships — that I am a bright light, someone who people feel invigorated and encouraged by. Enliven has multiple definitions, and I love them all: to make something more appealing, to spice something up, to make someone more cheerful, to refresh, restore, light a fire under.
