The whole one word deal at the beginning of a new year always spreads like wildfire on social media…I can’t escape it from my friends’ feeds on Facebook.
I get it, one word that’s supposed to sum up your goal or ideal for the year to come. I thought it was silly and had refused to play the game.
But this year is a tad different. Maybe I’m caving to social pressure…but in all honesty, one word has actually been popping into my mind a lot lately. Maybe it’s a sign?
It’s not cliche like my ideas have been in the past like organization, get fit (well, that still is a goal of mine but I’m not going to tie it into my one word), or be successful. To me, those are all goals, but not a true theme of what I want my whole year to be about.
That’s my word.
Hmm…what do I mean by evolve?
Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about who I am.
What makes me…me?
Who do I want to be?
How do I make the most of what I have?
I know, I just got super heavy on you, lol.
But not really.
Simply stated, I want to evolve rather than sitting still.
I’ve been too stuck in my routine and not reaching out as much as I want to. I have been happy being complacent…and I’m craving a challenge for this year.
My ultimate goal this year is to evolve myself to a better me.
A better wife.
A better mom.
A better creative.
And possibly a better cook, ha!
I want to learn. I want to make. I want to laugh. I want to be an inspiration for my girls.
So I’m raising a glass to 2016 and accepting my own challenge.
It’s time to evolve.
Do you have one word for 2016 and yourself?
