My “One Little Word” for 2018 is VENTURE. I found my OLW easily this year; the past 3 words, Progress (2017), Dream (2016), and Lean (2015) led me to this one. The start of 2018 has already been a bumpy one, and there’s nothing I can do but move forward. I embrace the challenges, and I’m ready to make 2018 the best it can be.

My past words served me well, and now that I have a jump-start, I’m ready to tackle new adventures. VENTURE: defined as a noun on Google as 1) “a risky or daring journey or undertaking,” 2) “a business enterprise involving considerable risk.” As a verb, VENTURE means 1) “daring to do something or go somewhere that may be dangerous or unpleasant,” 2) “dare, be/make so bold as, presume.” VENTURE is the perfect word for me this year because that’s my plan: VENTURING out there, taking risks and presuming new roles.

I’ll write more specifically about these VENTURES as I move through the year. I look forward to the challenges ahead. Happy New Year!
