2017 ~ MOVE

Move is my theme word for 2017. I choose a new theme word at the beginning of each new year. My words in the past have been minimize, develop, create, and improve. I think all of these words have helped me shape a plan for the new year. I need to physically move more. After giving it much thought, my plan is simple. I need to walk more, add steps to my day. I can do this.
Here are a few more ideas from the definition of the word 'move'. If you are reading this, I hope it gives you a little inspiration. love, susan

  1. I like your theme word! I need more physical movement too. With my 2017 theme word (Discover), it includes discovering new ways and places to exercise.

  2. That's a wonderful choice for 2017. A great motivator to keep doing and pushing forward. I really like it. I never would have thought of it. I like choosing words too instead of picking resolutions. I hope that in 2017 you keep moving :)

  3. Good Word choice. Activity is always healthy.

  4. Your word is fantastic! It covers everything! I definitely need a reminder to move, especially on long days spent staring at my computer.
