So usually I get around to posting my "word for the year" after New Year's, but decided that this year I would try to be ahead of the game. Last year my word was Breathe. I really did find myself stopping a few times to catch my breath, and trying to remember (in the words of Mr. Miyagi) "breathe in, breathe out". At the very least, nothing got to the point where I was hyper-ventilating so I guess it worked.
2014 was also the year that I lost a little bit of the drive that pushed me in 2013. I got a little lax with (well a lot lax) with running - and believe me when I tell you I can really feel it. I feel way more sluggish and tired since that fell to the wayside. So 2015 is the year I want to get my mojo back - hence my word for 2015:
I want to focus on all the things that make me happy this year. Family time, date nights, laughing with friends, hanging with my girls (who are growing up way too fast), crafting, reading a good book and running. So this year the plan is to focus on all those things, and although I'm a queen at multi-tasking I have learned that I can't focus on it all at the same time. Thank you Captain Obvious, but it really did take me way too long to realize that trying to do everything meant I didn't get to truly focus on anything.
So there you have it...this year I will focus. Truth be told I'm going to hang on to "breathe" for a little while longer. That one really should not have a shelf life of only one year!
What word will you live by this year?
