What’s the Word?

by Nicki on January 5, 2017


Hey there, its me Poe. The Embellish Girls have asked me to guest blog again and I have decided to challenge them to think of one word that can replace the idea of a resolution for the new year. They need to each pick a word that they want to focus on in 2017.

One word that describes how they want to feel or how they want to live over the next 52 weeks.


The first word that popped into my mind is SLOW.  Having children that are 13 and 15 makes me want time to slow down. They are busy and I want to have simple moments with them and learn to enjoy whatever time I get with them. Translating SLOW to my professional world would mean focusing on finding bigger projects that take a longer amount of time so I can build relationships with our clients and give them my best work.  I have learned over the past few busy years that  projects requiring our services from the beginning to the end are my favorite and that having SLOW periods at work actually help me grow our business in other ways.


The first world that popped into my mind is FASCINATING.  I want to have a FASCINATING year in 2017 that includes traveling to Peru to celebrate a milestone birthday. Life goes fast so why not make it FASCINATING?  As far as translating FASCINATING to working at Embellish Interiors that would mean that I want new experiences that will help me continue to enjoy the type of work we do.

Here are a few words to look over so you can choose your one word for 2017…

Growth, Focus, Unstoppable, Revel, More, Empower, Curious, Forward, Transition, Soar, Together, Embrace, Freedom, Grace, Trust, Imagine, Minimize, Action, Learn, Uplift, Dare, Relax, Be, Slow, Invest, Thrive, Believe, Present, Today, Ambition, Brave, Determined, Adapt, Write, Open, No, Mindfulness, Generous, Adventure, Release, Strength, Awake, Resolve, Fortitude, Health, Celebrate, Reduce, New, Optimism, Listen, Reflection, Enjoy, Balance, Pause, Live, Risk, Transformation, Truth, Faith, Simplify, Confidence, Change, Direction, Stewardship, Appreciate, Love, Momentum, Rebuilding, Different, Purpose, Sacrifice, Silence, Courage, Push, Create, Opportunity, Relentless, Joy, Commit, Persistence, Progress, Finish, Organize, Battle, Diligence, Peace, Integrity, Connect, Shine, Discover, Perspective, Breathe, Choose, Possibility, Ignite

So what’s the good word for you in 2017?

Love, Poe
