2015 One Little Word

It's that time of year where not only do we make resolutions, but we also have a chance to pick a focus for the year. Last year my focus was the word Content. And it was a hard one. I feel like I learned a lot about being happy while waiting for things to happen and then some of the most amazing things did. I've learned to be content with where things are at- from the pace at which our business grows to the people around me. And it's paid off. Accepting things as they are has allowed for more progress and happiness in my day to day life. Which leads me to my word for this year- Progress.

In the last crazy year most things in our lives have been a crazy mess- at least too crazy for me. When I was younger I used to think there was such a thing as "arriving". I would wonder when I would feel like I always wanted to do the right thing. When I would finally have all of my good habits lined up and in order. When our house would be organized and orderly. When my husband and I would have this perfect relationship. 

And now I know I was crazy. And ruining my chances for happiness now.

Yes, I worked on being content last year- but this year I want to work on celebrating progress. I hate slow progress. Hate it. Because I feel like it could happen so much more quickly. I could wake up and make better choices everyday. I could do a lot of things better- so why don't I? Why is it taking so long to get our act together in certain ways? 

BUT- this year I'm going to pay attention to the small improvements. And celebrate the heck out of them! I will not be getting into the best shape of my life this year- but I will be proud of myself for drinking more water. For serving my family more fruits and vegetables. And for using my gym membership. And who knows? Maybe I will get into great shape. Or I'll just be in better shape than I was last year. Which would be awesome! 

Maybe we won't be the most useful, serving, kindest family at church this year. But I will celebrate when we are less late to church. Or maybe on time. And when we have prayers and read scriptures consistently as a family. And when I have my own study and prayers too. 

So in a nutshell- this year I'll be watching for progress and striving for progress. As long as we are moving forward in any way at all- I'm happy. 

What is your focus this year? Did you pick a word?


  1. BABY! Which is kind of a hard one, because there's all that science and biology stuff involved. :)

  2. Love your choice of word for the year! This year I chose "believe", and I am really excited to see where it takes me. Enjoy your journey!

  3. Love it! Great word. I always love picking a word to focus on for the year. This year I picked "grow" and it works well since I want to grow in so many areas of my life.
