One word resolution

For the last few years I’ve been practicing what I call a one word resolution.  The idea is that you select one word that sums up what you want to work towards for the year (here’s my word from last year).  This year, my resolution is simply to care.

This sounds really easy right? You might be thinking that that’s not really a resolution.  It’s true, I think of myself as a naturally empathetic person, but this is about more than just being caring.  
When I say that I’m going to care, it covers so many parts of my life.  Professionally, I want to make sure that I care for the teacher I work with.  I want to be a shoulder to lean on, and really build relationships with them.  I have always loved supporting other teachers, so I am going to use my time a little more wisely and really extend all of myself and my resources to help them out.  Personally, I need to take some time to take care of myself and my relationships.  I work, a lot.  I feel guilty if I’m not working, and this is something that I’ve been battling this past year.  It’s good to take a break, do something fun for myself, and spend time, quality time with the people that mean the most top me.  I’m going to care a little more about this next year.  
I could go on, but I’m sure you’re not super interested in all of the ways that I’m going to take better care of my home, and work out more, blah, blah, blah.  However, I am interested in your resolutions, what is your word for 2016?
