For the past couple of years instead of setting goals or resolutions for the new year, I have selected a word of the year.
2015 - try: Try new things, try to better myself. In the end, you will never accomplish anything unless you try.
2014 - live: Life is short, I want to live my life to the fullest. Live in the moment and take on new adventures.
This year I've given a lot of thought to my word of the year. I want it to be something all encompassing. Not just a word for my personal life, not just a word for my family. A word that I can reflect on all year long in every situation. I must admit that my latest tattoo inspired this year's word.
This year's word is ...
Have a positive attitude
To be absolutely positive in the decisions I make
Provide a positive role model for my girls
Be positive in a world full of negatives
Encourage others to join me in positive thinking
I am a firm believer if you put positive energy out into the world, you will get back positive things. Thinking you will master a task, gives you a better chance of making it happen.
Here's to seeing 2016 as a glass half full.
