My Word of the Year ~~ Flourish

 I know I'm late posting this, but I've come up with my word of the year.

For 2017, my word of the year is Flourish.  It's a synonym of "Thrive" and that's why I chose it.  I liked it the best of all the synonyms of "Thrive."  It reminds me of a flowering plant that has it's roots securely in the ground and is blossoming with color.  That's what I want this year to be.

2016 ~~ DeConstruct
2015 ~~ ReImagine
2014 ~~ Perseverance
2013 ~~ Courage

I feel like I did a good job embodying my word of the year each year except last year.  I'm not sure I got everything quite broken down the way I had envisioned.  If I look at last year and try to apply my word, it would go like this:
