Musée du Louvre

Picking a word to inspire everything you do in the year ahead really helps drive the intent behind your actions and provide you with an omnipresent purpose. Last year I chose 'forward' and I feel I did a good job of always keeping it in mind, particularly when making the decision to become full time self-employed.

This year I'm choosing 'explore.' It's the perfect word for how I feel about life right now. I want to explore more places; I want to explore the world by going on more adventures and I want to explore my creativity by trying new things and opening myself up to new opportunities.
