Last year, I also adopted a word of the year — two to be exact. Challenge and adventure. These were simple ideas that I could carry around with me whenever and wherever to as a quick reminder of what I wanted to focus on for the year. They’re a great alternative to actual New Year’s resolutions, which as I shared with you earlier this week, can sometimes feel more like obligations than inspiration. That’s why I’m embracing two new words for 2018.
