2023 Reflection on Word of the Year: Harmonious

Category: Senior Living

Author: Courtney Darby, Executive Director

As we wrap up 2023, we find ourselves reflecting on months past and what lies ahead with our community’s journey. 

If you recall, our Personal and Professional Development Coach, Michael “Buck” Buckley, challenged us to pick a “Word of the Year” in January 2023. Buck asked us to look inward and consider what we need more of or what might improve our lives. The time has come to revisit our Word of the Year for 2023 and explore its impact on The Castlewood Senior Living. Whether you’ve been an active member or are just joining us, this retrospective journey invites us all to celebrate the past year.

Our community Word of the Year for 2023 was ‘harmonious.’ We achieved many successes and improved our community throughout the year, living in line with our word. Each day, we made a commitment to help each other. During this year, we often had to listen to each other’s needs, adjust, and have direct conversations. In the end, we formed “a pleasing, consistent whole.” 

We lived out our word. During 2023, our team continued to grow and bond together.

I look forward to seeing our community grow as a team and in occupancy in 2024. 

As we bid farewell to 2023, we will carry forward the essence of our Word of the Year into 2024. The successes and strides of our community, the embodiment of our chosen word in our collective actions, are not just markers in time but a testament to the strength of this community. 

I look forward to catching our 2024 Word of the Year blog soon!
