In the last days of December, as I envisioned what I wanted 2018 to look like, I tried to create a word for the year.
2017 was a good year, but it was also a hard year for me. I struggled mightily against what I dubbed a case of the “meh’s”. I struggled to do things: big things, little things, even the things I loved to do seemed like a huge chore. I struggled to do housework, to make time for friends, to cook. I just felt “meh”.
2018 needed to be different and the word that came to mind when I envisioned the new year was not one, but three: motivated, passionate, inspired.
