The first word that came to me was Positive. It's been so easy getting caught up with all the bad news of the world, and I've noticed how all that bad energy has affected my mindset. In the past couple months, Mike has had to remind me to "think positive" on several occasions...which is very concerning. So naturally, positive was the front runner. But, that word was just too cheesy for me. I needed a word that sounded happy. The word needs to help me to focus on the positives of the everyday, but be flexible enough to lend itself to many avenues in 2017.
I still wasn't in love with any of them. Then, tonight, I decided to give another look at my words. And it came out of nowhere.
giving out or reflecting a lot of light; shining. giving an appearance of cheerful liveliness.
