What one word describes your goals or inspirations for the new year? Wow! One word? That is very limited. We all know I like to use lots of words. This challenge to find one word is part of a group challenge the Arkansas Women Bloggers are doing. I really was not inspired when I first read the challenge, but then I read a couple of blog posts. I was inspired! I am often inspired by this group of intelligent women. I joined the Arkansas Women Bloggers this year and have been amazed at the way these ladies encourage and uplift all those around them. One of the inspirational posts was (Delta Moxie). The other post was from Jacqueline Wolven, she had a link to a list called Find Your Word. I followed the link and began to get more inspired. A whole list of powerful, intentional, focused words.
Brave! That’s a great word! What if i intentionally try to be brave in all I do in 2015.
Faith! Another amazing word. What if I used stronger faith in all I do. What if I worked hard to grow and share my faith in 2015. That would be a very valuable use of my energies.
Fun! I really like to have fun! What if I focus this year on having more fun. Making more fun? That would definitely have me smiling.
Grace! Wow! What If I tried to have more grace in all I do. What if I tried to find grace? Grace is a big, beautiful, powerful word. The world would be a much better place if we all showed more grace.
There were lots of great words, but in the end one word seemed best suited to my life right now.
Declutter! It is not as big and powerful as faith and grace, but hopefully I will be brave enough to conquer all my clutter. Who knows maybe I will even have a little fun while I do it. Yes, declutter will be my word for this year. I will declutter my house, my purse, my photos, and my life. Bring on 2015! (Check out my photo decluttering inspiration here. It’s from another great Arkansas Women Blogger’s post.)
Do you have one word? Or do you use other ways to motivate and accomplish your goals? My friend Stacy makes a focus board. I love, love, love this idea! Check out Stacy’s board here. I think better in pictures so I think this would work great to motivate me. I hope you have a______ year!
