Sheila at Book Journey shares a wonderful tradition of selecting a single word at the beginning of the year. Here is a link to her post: One Word….What Can A New Year Bring? and a second post here: Retiring a Word…. Bringing In A New One.
My 2014 word was Reach, with the goal of improving my Social Networking skills. (It helped.)
I don’t remember if I picked a word for 2015.
My word for 2016 is Simplify. My goal is to declutter and simplify my life. I ordered an inspirational necklace, from JennsHanmade Jewlery on Etsy (with a pearl) in order to help me keep this idea at the forefront throughout the year.
Paring down on things can be daunting. That is why I plan to do it in continual small steps throughout the new year. Removing old or unwanted things from my life will hopefully simplify it, while making room for more important things.
Do you have a word for 2016?
