Default What's your 2015 One Little Word?

I know several here have chosen words in the past. Do you have a word in mind for 2015?

Mine in the past have been:

Change - 2010
Simplify - 2011
Achieve - 2012
Intention - 2013
Balance - 2014

This year I am not sure which direction I want to go. I really want to focus on my health in 2015. I want a word that encompasses mental, physical and spiritual health though. Then again, I want to work on being more organized. I just can't find a word that sits right with me yet.

Sherri - how about "Wellness".

Personally I've never done OLW so I shouldn't be handing out advice!

Last year my word was Aspire. This year I have decided on Better. I want to eat better, live better, work better, love better, and be a better parent. I think it is a good word for me to aspire to this year.

Last year I did "Open". I'm struggling to find my word for 2015. I need something to push me forward and to make me really strive for who I want to be.

My word for 2015 is Chance. I had Happy for 2013 and Choose for 2014.

I made the mistake of choosing persevere last year.

I am picking a much happier word for 2015: thrive. I have persevered long enough!

Nothing is reaching out to me yet...thinking of Love but not sure. I'd like to focus on the positive and love my family more, my work and myself. My words previously have been 2014 - Up, 2013 - Clear and 2012 - Harmony.

I'm thinking mine will be 'Acceptance', but if something else hits me better before the new year i'd be willing to change it.

I am leaning towards Wellness, or perhaps Fly. I love the FlyLady acronym for FLY - Finally Loving Yourself so I am considering that. The word Fly offers a lot in itself as well. Still debating.

My daughter is choosing responsibility as her word.

Can't remember what mine were when I did them but I think 2015's will most likely be something around my goal of finishing university - thinking graduate but I feel that is too limiting so still considering my options

Those are great suggestions-I'll be finished in November 2015 but wont graduate until May 2016. Plan is at the moment is to head off overseas to Canada around July 2017 - early 2018 or so to work as I have dual citizenship but I kind of need to pay off my approx $50,000 student loan as much as possible while still in New Zealand because it becomes interest bearing once I leave the country for more than 6 months.

Jenn, what about 'focus'? Focus on finishing the course. Focus on getting things in order to achieve your mid and long term plans. Focus fully on each day and don't procrastinate etc.

I think Focus it will be cause it can transfer into so many parts of my life-university, job hunting, graduation, becoming healthy (thats a big one cause I have let that slide over the last 2 years) & my future overseas ambitions

Nurture.
To nurture: body, mind, soul, faith, relationships, creativity, passion

I think my previous years were something like this:
2014- focus
2013 - change - growth
2012 - purpose
2011- create

I've never heard of this. What is it? Just a word to focus on all year or something to do with scrapping?

Yes, it's a word that is to become your focus for the year, what you want to work on or change... Ali Edwards has a bunch of blog posts on it and even has a workshop that will help you keep the word in the forefront through the year.

I can't remember what my word for 2013 was but this year was Home... as it taking care of it, making it comforting, make it a safe place for the kids and family... spending more time doing things for the home which is why I scrapped less...

this year I think I am going with patience. I seriously need to improve in that aspect of my self development

In 2015 I think I am going with - Focus or Motivation!

I need focus/motivation - to finish my degree, financial, health, and a lot of other things!

I'm doing "cheer" this year. It seems like kind of a strange one, but I have two main focuses with it.

1. I want to be more cheerful, even when life is stressful . . . recognize the little happy things that happen every day and openly talk about them with my family.

2. I want to cheer for my kids more, boost their spirits with positive comments, and let them know that I see all the good things about them.

Finally found my word for 2015 - it hit me on the head this morning - Discipline
Having more discipline in keeping my house clean, discipline keeping my eating on track, discipline in not letting my kids sway me in letting them get away with things, discipline at work...it's kind of harsh, but I think I need that this year. I also decided to choose an anchor as a symbol of discipline to keep my word in my focus. There are so many things I can get with anchors on them I hope if I have them around to remind me I will stay on track.

Previous words -
2014 - Open
2013 - Balance

I love your layout Marcy!!! Is that template a new release coming up?

Choose my word just in time for the new year. I'm going with happy. I've made a pinterest board that includes quotes and pictures that make me happy. I have had a lot of health problems that are getting progressively worse and I feel I need to focus on being happy even when in pain. Not an easy task but I want my kids to remember me as a happy person rather than remembering me always being in pain.

I love the Albus Dumberdore quote from Harry Potter, "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light."

Thank you! The template was actually the 2013 Goaltastic OLW template by Nettio Designs - I just switched the date. Bought it back then and never got around to using it, lol.

As a family, we picked ours out the other night...

DH - Streamline - he is obsessed lately with "Hazel" on the Mac and automating things and he wants to become even more "paperless."

Kiddo - Learn - he picked it. He wants to learn and read more about the human body, learn how to spell better, read more books to Rupert... *darn, proud of that kid!

Mine - Start - I need to start doing my intentions, all those things that I say I should be doing... start exercising regularly, start meal planning and cooking at home more than going out, start cleaning out the basement, start a plan to actually finish all those outstanding albums that I've started, etc...

I didn't do a word for 2014 because nothing really stood out to me.
But this year I'm kind of torn between 3.
Grow. Strength. Open.

My last 2 words were Focus and Improve

Change

This last year was wild for me...finally left a toxic relationship and moved myself and my boys 1700 miles away from where we had called home. I'm working after 7 years as a stay at home mom and rebuilding my life and creating a better one for my boys. It's all about change this year!

My word for 2015 is "progress". The company my husband works for was aquired by Facebook, which has brought big changes to our life. The biggest being that we are relocating to Northern California. We love our life in Orange County and are sort of bummed about the move, so we are looking at this as progress in our life, after being comfortable and doing the same old things. Now that I have written this all down, I may choose "adventure" as my word. The move is a big adventure and we are doing a lot of traveling. I might have to think about what I need most in my life, progress or adventure.

2013- Do
2012- Focus

I ended up going with Nurture. I really liked that one and it said what I was feeling. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year!

This year, I'm focusing on "Sunnah".

It's Arabic word which means the actions of the prophet Muhammad. I want to follow his examples - actions & personality. Not an easy thing to do coz he's super patient, humble, truthful, soft-spoken and thoughtful. I hope I'll at least be able to be a better version of me by the end of the year.
