2018: Simplify

For the last couple of days, I’ve been trying to think about what goals and resolutions I want to focus on this year, and I’ve been trying to figure out my word.  Other years, it has felt like it has come easy to me.. that I just know what I want my word to be all through the last week of the year, and it’s been easy to write about.

So, today I sat down to really think about it.  And as I thought, and as I looked to other words for inspiration.. it became really obvious to me.

Over the last few months, I have become really interested in the minimalist lifestyle, and the concept of hygge (which is Danish and basically means “cozy contentment and enjoying the simple things in life”).  I’ve been slowly trying to rid myself of baggage, and things that weigh me down over the last few months.  Whether it’s clutter, or emotions.  I’m trying not to let things get to me as much (and this is a huge work in progress haha).  I also tend to overthink things, and stress over things that, ultimately, don’t matter all that much.

So, my word for 2018 is simplify.  Stop over-thinking.  Declutter.  Simplify!

What is your word for the year?

Bold

I’ve been writing this post in my head for a few days now. At the beginning of every year, I have been picking a word for what I want the year to be about and I’ve decided that the word for 2017 is BOLD. 
 

I love all the definitions of this word. I want to be impactful, vivid, bright, strong, daring, brave, take risks & show confidence. I want to stand up for myself and others when things bug me. I want to make 2017 BOLD.

Now, to figure out how 😉 

What’s your word for 2017?

Happy New Year! 

Xoxo, Alysa
