2015 flew by, didn’t it? Seriously.
For me, 2015 was year of excitement, milestones, a few scares, some drama and yet through it all, here I am, a little wiser, and no worse for wear. How about you?
Last year, rather than a list of resolutions, I chose a word, an overall theme for the year. A word that was to encompass to all of the things I wanted to accomplish in 2015. I chose the word ELEVATE.
I wanted to elevate in each area of my life: relationships, parenting, working, health, nutrition, physical activity, blogging and Natalie as a whole.
Did I elevate in 2015?
Absolutely! Not as much as I would have liked but some is better than none! This by no means the removal of this word from my life just because 2015 is over. I throughly believe in the principles of continuous improvement and therefore, ‘elevate’ will be a constant now and in the future.
It’s 2016, what’s the word bird?
This was a no-brainer.
I desperately need FOCUS this year. I need to be realistic and conquer the things I do well and not get caught up in any and every thing. While I know I am able to multi-task and organize, I do need to remember a few really important things:
- Never forget my commitment to ME time
- I work FULL time
- I’m a MOM of 3, ALL of the time!
That’s not to say I cannot achieve my goals because of those things, but I have to keep them top of mind. It’s important to me to give 110% to a few things, rather than only 60% to everything.
This was a perfect topic for me to discuss a bit more in my first weekly MondayAMMusings vlog of 2016, have a look!
Do you have a word for 2016? How about sharing a few of your resolutions?
