Two years ago I decided to pick a word to describe the year, and loved the concept so much I picked another word last year.
During those two years, I still made a to-do list, as well as monthly goals... and while the word still meant something, it got lost in the shuffle. So this year, I decided I'd pick my word and let it do all the talking. (I was already thinking about doing this, and then I read Austin Eavesdropper's word of the year post, and it helped push me forward.)
So my word for 2013?
This year I really want to do things with purpose. I want to take control of where my time goes, what goes in my body, how I treat the people around me, especially how I treat C. I want to take all of these opportunities placed in front of me, and strive to make something out of it.
I see 2013 as a year of hard work... of great risk, determination and dedication... and of great payoff. I see the promise of a clear path set in front of me. And I want to make sure I don't miss a turn. I know living with purpose will teach me perseverance and dignity. I want to learn the value in respecting life.
While I will continue to allow myself to dream, living with purpose means I'll have to learn practicality and how to live in reality. I want to learn how to remain grounded within my dreaming. And I really hope that by living with purpose, I will be an encouragement and inspiration to everyone around me. I want to be someone people want to know and befriend.
So I won't be setting goals on a regular basis, but will pick ones as they feel right. I already know a few goals ahead of me are:
- Complete Financial Peace university & set short-term financial goals as we work through it.
- Finish defining what this blog is meant to be.
- Create a plan to monetize my blog in a way that's comfortable to me.
- Be a content creator.
- Don't be wasteful.
- Eat healthy, whole food.
- Drink water.
- Actively pursue showing C I love him.
I'm looking forward to it!
Here's to a lovely 2013 ♥
