2023 Reflection on Word of the Year: Overcome

Category: Senior Living

Author: Holly Perkins, Executive Director

As we wrap up 2023, we reflect 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 Rock Creek 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 ‘overcome.’ We achieved many successes throughout the year, living in line with our word and improving the community. 

In 2023, we developed a full leadership team, hired all our own staff, and removed agency staffing from the building. As I review the year, I don’t know if overcome was the team’s only word of the year. Elevate, regenerate, and fortitude are words I think of when reflecting on the past six months. I’m looking forward to 2024 and continuing to build a strong, stable community.

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!
