A word. Just one word to describe what you want your year to look like. Or something you’d like to do or achieve in that year.
Last year my word was “balance.”
What a great choice that was. Did I achieve it?
Did I try? Do I continue to try?
Balance is funny like that. I don’t think there is ever a time in your life where you can say “Okay, that’s it! I’m balanced. We’re good here, moving on.”
Specially as a mom. I mean, I don’t know about you but how many hats do you have to wear?
And many, many more.
So this year, I’m going for a different word. It is actually kind of opposite in a sense. Because as good as balance was, it’s definitely something I am going to be working on for the rest of my life. I’m sure of it. So this year’s word is:
As I am sitting here looking at my word, I am thinking of all the other words I could have chosen.
Adventure – to get out there and make adventures for me and my family.
Bravery – don’t be shy or scared when speaking French or making this world my own.
Explore – there’s so much to see around here!
Love – just love on my kids & husband. Because they’re pretty stinkin’ cool.
Reach out – start to think more outside myself and of others & their needs & wants.
Well, I suppose the list could go on. And I suppose it will every year. But I chose focus because I want to accomplish things. I have goals & dreams and sometimes I’m such a scattered brain I don’t get anything done because I can’t focus on the task in front of me.
Could I put organizing on that list too?
But I feel like if I set tasks & focus to get them done, whether it’s in the kitchen, on the blog, crafts with the kids, I will get them done instead of putting them off for whatever reason.
So there it is. I am going to work on being focused in 2013 — among other things.
What is your word for 2013 and why’d you choose it?
Oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR!! Bring it on 2013!
