My word for 2016

This is the fifth year in a row that I've chosen a word for the year - I can't believe that I've stuck with it for so long, but it definitely helps me much more than a crazy list of resolutions.  I'm all for resolutions, IN THEORY, but in practice I just make convoluted plans that are just made to be broken. 

So instead I choose one word to focus on. Here are my words so far:

2012: More

2013: Simplify

2014: Me

2015: Real

My word for 2016 came to me quite easily - it's "delight."
