2016 Word of the Year

Last year my word was synergy  and I felt that it was a good word for me it helped me to focus. This year with all that's going on and was going to finish off 2015 and start 2016 I think I need a word that is more meditative and calm so I have picked  shalom. Many people think shalom means peace but the meaning is much more in depth, comprehensive, detailed, and balanced than simple peace and because of the chaos in my life at this point I believe it is the perfect word for me.

Shalom - "Shalom is more then just simply peace; it is a complete peace. It is a feeling of contentment, completeness, wholeness, well being and harmony. According to Strong's Concordance 7965 Shalom means completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, harmony, the absence of agitation or discord. Shalom comes from the root verb shalom meaning to be complete, perfect and full. " The Meaning of Shalom
With all that has gone on in December I know that the start of 2016 will be rocky in some ways.  

I feel a connection with this word in more ways than one and that I can connect with the multiple meanings.
