I’ve read many articles lately, people have been selecting a word to focus on for the new year. I have been thinking about it quite a bit lately, and have decided to choose a word for 2015.
My inspiration came from a few blog posts I’ve read over the last couple weeks: Rebekah is a high school classmate of mine, I read her posts regularly, and this was the first I had read about having “One Little Word.” Read her post here. The post Rebekah used for inspiration was Ali Edwards’ “One Little Word” project. Her post is here. During a bit more research, I also found an informative post by Forbes on choosing a theme, read it here.
My word for 2015 is courage.
2014 brought a lot of changes to my life, I moved to Kansas City with James, I was promoted in my job, I’ve joined a running club, I’ve run two half marathons (one and two) I’ve made friends and lost loved ones. 2014 was a year of change. 2015 will be a year of taking chances, growing and learning and thriving, and of having courage to do it all with open arms, an open mind, and an open heart.
I strongly considered using the word brave, but I feel as if 2014 was full of brave, and I want to continue to be brave in 2015, and be full of courage as well. 2015 will be a fantastic year, I am confident I will spread my wings to reach and surpass my goals and even more in 2015. I encourage you to find focus for 2015 with a word or theme. I believe a theme for the year can bring meaning and inspiration to you and your future
If you have a word or theme for 2015, share it in the comments below. Happy new year!
