At the beginning of every new year, many of us make resolutions that revolve around our weight or our appearance. Having made these same goals, this year I decided that that isn't enough. I don't just want to lose weight. I don't just want to look good in a pair of jeans. I don't want to make the same resolution I have made every year since puberty! This year, I say forget about making just one goal. Instead, I am choosing one word that I will focus on in 2017: THRIVE. According to Google, the definition of THRIVE is "to grow or develop well or vigorously; to prosper or flourish." I intend to try and do just that in all areas of my life this year.
