Let’s pretend like today is January first. Maybe even second. Because that’s when I meant to post this… I saw lots of people posting a word for the year on Instagram, and I decided it’s a nice idea, just to have something to keep thinking back to like that.
2013 was an absolute whirlwind of ups, down, memories, and chaos. Between a car accident, my wedding, special events for work, my bachelorette party, back surgery, and everything sandwiched in between, it was a big year. It flew by, and while I enjoyed all those moments, I feel like I spent too many of them planning for the next thing on the list.
I chose ‘be present’ as my word(s) for this year to remind myself to enjoy the moment I’m in, rather than constantly pushing forward to the next one. It’s a cycle I need to break now before I look back at another year. This is my little reminder to slow down and relax!
If you could pick any word or phrase to set the tone for your 2014, what would it be?
