In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, it’s easy to lose sight of our intentions and the bigger picture. We often find ourselves swept away by the currents of work, family, and responsibilities. But what if there was a simple yet powerful way to stay grounded, motivated, and focused throughout the year? That’s where the concept of a “Word of the Year” comes in.
