I can’t do goals or resolutions or long, long lists. I would just rather not. I like short term lists, but long term goals and resolutions can make me feel bogged down. I’m sure it’s not just me. So, when I heard about the concept of picking one word as a theme for the year and using it to make improvements in life, I found that to be a very cool idea. I first read about it on In Honor Of Design, one of my favorite blogs.
For 2014, I would like to embrace each day and each moment as much as possible. I want to focus and be in the moment. I plan on enjoying the year very much, while accomplishing goals and making some major life changes along the way.
I tend to multi-task way too much. Or sometimes I get focused on one thing and not spend enough time on other projects I have going on. I don’t want to be that girl looking at her phone all the time any more. I want to embrace my family time and friend time. I want be in the present tense and not thinking about the past or future too much either, although that’s not necessarily bad.
I have a lot of big plans for this year. They might all happen, but they might not. Some are more important than others. For instance, I would like to graduate, get a full-time job and get a car. The car might be the least important thing in that short list but it’s hard to say. I want to learn and do so many other things besides that too. I would really like to embrace the opportunity I have in this time of my life to try many things, while also having some direction.
I’ll focus on moving forward, but not being overly critical of myself. I would just like to embrace each day and the stage of my life that I’m in right now.
Here’s to 2014!
