I was asked, “What’s your word for 2015“, and I was lost… my word…?
a single distinct meaningful element of speech or writing, used with others (or sometimes alone) to form a sentence and typically shown with a space on either side when written or printed.
synonyms: term, name, expression, designation, locution, vocable; formalappellation
“the Italian word for “ham””– per Google
Word… just one? I cannot choose just ONE word, I love words! I collect them, write them, highlight them, I even go as far as to buy books full of them, so you see I cannot choose ONE word. I stopped myself from writing a book of words for the year. Instead, I’m using the words that came to me in the shower aka my thinking spot. In no particular order my words to live by for 2015:
I need to be even more present in my life. This life is so good, and I’m thankful for every single second I have of it. Nothing should be taken for granted, I’m working hard this year to remember that.
Last year I did NOT create as much. Creating things with my hands makes me incredibly happy. (Who doesn’t want to be happy?) I want to paint, hot glue, draw, weave, and glitterfy. My family is in on this one, we’re all art journaling this year.
Believe it or not…. I CAN be a Debbie Downer, especially when it comes to myself. I am my harshest critic. This year, I want to remain positive, and look for the good, even when the good seems inaccessible.
Brave goes hand-in-hand with positive, because this year I’m not holding back! I plan on pushing myself out of my comfort zone, and conquering mountains. Doubt is out, and bold is gold. 😉
Even though I plan on being bold this year, I need to remain patient, things aren’t going to happen right away, and that’s okay. I have to remember this especially when I eat 10 salads in a row, drink gallons of water, and do 50 squats a day, and still don’t look like JLo. Please remind me to be patient with that 😉 I’m sure I’ll need a reminder at some point.
I want to be a cheerleader for others as well as myself. I want to push family, friends, future friends, and strangers to do their best. We’re all in this fight together, right? This year I will be a card & letter-writing- just-because-texting-love-spreading-encourager.
Love, always makes my list. (I’m a lover a Latin Lover on top of that 😉 HELLO..) I want to throw love and kindness out there like glitter! So, those are my words for 2015, I could totally add more, but I stopped myself. I wrote this post as soon as I was done with my shower, in my notebook next to my bed, because I wake up with ideas too. When I was finished writing I popped on Twitter, and saw this tweet:
Mia, is giving me the opportunity to start working on my “words” I’m excited to join this swap. I’m looking forward to encouraging my swap partner to chase her dreams. Do you have a word or words for this year? A goal?
