My 2017 Word of the Year

Here we are, another year come and gone and started again. Gosh-- Time, it really doesn't ever slow down does it? So, 2017, how ya doing?? I've brought an upper respiratory infection into this new year (ugh), so I didn't have my normal excitement/"clean slate" feeling that comes with each new year. But, I have been thinking about what I hope to achieve and work towards this upcoming year.

2017 Word of the Year | Blush + Soul


1. to hold someone in your arms as a way of expressing love or friendship.
2. to accept or support willingly and enthusiastically.

This year, I want to embrace:

For me, 2017 is all about the love. Life is way too short not to show the people you love that you cherish them. Hug them, spend time with them, make memories with them. This year, I'm loving harder, y'all.

So much of happiness is accepting. Accepting situations and people for what & who they are. If we spend all our time fighting and questioning what is, we will never find happiness. I want to continue working on embracing my journey good & bad, trusting in God's plan for my life.

This year brings with it a lot of new changes and comfort zone breaking. Thing's I'll share with you as they come. I find myself feeling insecure and afraid, but in 2017 I'm choosing to welcome these changes, embrace them, and grow from them.

Life is one unpredictable, beautiful adventure, and this year I've decided to embrace every little bit of it!

DO you have a word of the year? What are your aspirations for 2017?
