As one year fades into another, it’s a natural time for reflection. A time spent uncovering what went well, what we wish had gone differently, what we learned along the way, and what our hope is for the future. Reflection is an opportunity to evaluate the past in order to reveal the ways we’ve grown and changed.
We are given a path forward when we take the lessons learned from the past and use them as a guide. One way I do this is by selecting a word of the year.
