Picking a word to inspire everything you do in the year ahead really helps drive the intent behind your actions and provide you with an omnipresent purpose. Last year I chose 'forward' and I feel I did a good job of always keeping it in mind, particularly when making the decision to become full time self-employed.

This year I'm choosing 'explore.' It's the perfect word for how I feel about life right now. I want to explore more places; I want to explore the world by going on more adventures and I want to explore my creativity by trying new things and opening myself up to new opportunities.

  3. Such a good idea, Sophie! My word would have to be 'appreciate', this year I want to spend more time making the most of what I have rather than focusing more on what I don't.

    That's a great idea ! My moto this year would not fit in a word but in a sentence : give yourself the means to reach your goals

  15. And I choose "happiness", cause I feel I have a lot in my life, but many times I can't see the beauty of it because of some irrelevant stuff which make me sad. That's why I'm doing the 365grateful project ;)

  34. I choose "grow". I want to grow this year and improve some of my skills. Become a better version of me. Leave behind my fears and taking the leap - I'm often scared of everything and that limits me a lot.


    I hope you're able to explore a lot this year and learn new things, Sophie. Happy 2015! :)

  35. I have a similar word to you - adventure. I felt like 2014 was very work-focused and I am craving adventure. As much as I love routine, I want 2015 to include more spontaneous weekends, more travel, and to branch out with content on my blog. Thanks for sharing your vision for your 2015.

  44. I read about choosing one word for the year a couple of other places too, it seems like SUCH a good idea. It reminds me a bit of Neil Gaiman's thing, about imagining that your ultimate goal is a mountain that you're walking towards. Every time you do something or are faced with an opportunity, you should ask yourself if it is taking you towards or away from that mountain. I think having one word that you're accountable to and focused on for the year is such a great idea, now I need to think of one!

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is exactly how I feel about choosing one word for the year; everything I do or consider doing, I refer back to that one word to check whether it falls in line with my goals and ambitions for the year.


    I would totally recommend trying it.
