Several people I know, both bloggers and not, choose a word (or in some cases a group of words) each year that are meant to serve as a guide and a challenge throughout the next year. For several years now I have fallen back on my favorite word, which is “Believe”. This year, I am going with something new.
To be present in each moment. To be the best wife I can be. To, hopefully, be a mother for the first time. To be a better friend. To enjoy each moment as it comes, and ride the waves of life as calmly as possible. To simply just BE.
What am I hoping for 2015 in my life? A lot of things, both big and seemingly small. I am not ‘resolving’ to do any one thing, but rather work towards things and ideals that I would like to achieve. Some things are out of my hands, but that doesn’t mean I can’t pray about them and do everything that is within my power to make them happen. As for the things that are totally within my control, I just need to step up and do them. It may require some thinking outside of the box, but I have the ability to make life a little sweeter for myself and those around me.
What am I hoping for 2015 for this blog? First and foremost that I stick with it, which has never happened before 😉 I tend to get so many great ideas and then get overwhelmed (a theme everyday of the week? Tried it. No thank you!). To use this is a platform to discuss things affecting my life – likely both good and tough. To blog about books, one of my biggest passions. To do reviews of each book I read (I hope!) no matter how old the book is, instead of just focusing on new releases and Galleys like I have in the past.
So, welcome to the journey of my life – at least the bloggable parts. 2015 could be the best year yet, I plan to be present in each moment and make it so.
