Rather than set a lengthy list of almost unattainable new year goals and resolutions like in years past (see mine from 2014, 2013, and 2012), I’ve decided that I am going to give myself one single word to live by this year in the hopes I can really clarify and make an impact in various areas of my life.
For the past month, I have jotted down a few select words that stood out to me and made a note to really think about what I want to accomplish this next year and then I sat down, brainstormed, and thought of ways I intend to make it happen! Top contenders that I ended up not choosing included Organize, Kindness, Love, Gratefulness, Hope, Happiness, Joy, and Laughter, but the one that stood out to me and captured my heart for this year was right in my face.
complex or complicated/simpler or easier to do or understand/clarify/make easier
In so many forms and fashions, it’s time for this lady to simplify and live a more simple life. I’m a complex person who loves life’s little intricacies, but I’ve found that sometimes living with less can be better for so many reasons, and I intend to discover that over the next 12 months. Less stress, less clutter, less “stuff”, and less mess can go a long way in my book and I am hoping to clarify not only in my personal life, but in my business as well.
