One Word for 2015: Focus

For the past few years, instead of doing New Year’s Resolutions, I have chosen a theme for the coming year. In the past I’ve chosen “Imperfect” (because I tend to get so caught up in perfection that I don’t do anything), and “Intention” (because I don’t want to live life passively, I want to live with intention).

A major weakness of mine is indecision. I review, plan, research, Pin (ah, yes, you know exactly what I’m talking about!), but I can’t make a decision and DO.

For 2015, I’ve chosen the word “Focus” because I want to allow myself to zero in on what I really want, and then take action. I am starting the year with a clear picture of what I want to accomplish, and who I want to be.

I will be healthier.

I will publish Widow’s Web.

I will make time for my creative outlets.

So, what about you? What do you want to accomplish? If you are looking to read more in 2015, might I suggest you start with Denim & Diamonds, my debut novel? I’d be honored if you’d check it out – the e-book costs less than your daily Starbucks!

  1. I sat down on New Years Eve and made a list of “goals” I wanted to accomplish. Most of them were financial goals, but still I anticipate the day when I can make a big X across each one. Then, on New Year’s Day…I solved my Rubik’s cube for the very first time. I strutted around the house for two days. I decided I was also going to make another list of things I have done and things I have learned so at the end of the year I can reflect back and prove to myself I did have some accomplishments in 2015. Like the toast on the Titanic… “To making it count!”
