New Year's Resolutions/Goals/Focus Word(s) of the year

I'm not sure where the backlash started for resolutions, but I'm not liking it! Why shouldn't you make goals/resolutions/focus words for a new year? Why shouldn't you admit where your weaknesses are for the year before and make plans to strengthen them?

This year, whatever you call it: goals, resolutions, whatever... make some! Think about your year, and what you want to work on, and do it! What's holding you back?

My word for 2014 was "Relax" and I tried my hardest to learn to just relax. I believe I did a pretty good job, although the Mr. would say I didn't relax enough!
I seemed to respond best when I focus on a word for the year rather than a list of resolutions, so I decided to continue the tradition this year. I even have my word(s) of the year personalized on my beloved Erin Condren planner so it's always in eye sight...

2015 words of the year are: "Simplify Everything" sounds great right?

  1. make (something) simpler or easier to do or understand.

  1. 1.
    all things; all the things of a group or class.
    "he taught me everything I know"
    synonyms:each item, each thing, every single thing, the lot, the whole lot; 
    • 2the current situation; life in general.
  2. "how's everything?"

This is going to apply to all aspects of my life, my blogging life, crafting life, business, even down to my "stuff" that clutters my home. EVERYTHING is getting overhauled and simplified! I can't wait to share this journey with you over the next year. Details on how these words will direct me to make my life less cluttered, less stressful, and over all fan-freaking-tastic! 

What's your resolutions/goals/word(s) of 2015? Share below! 


  1. That is a great goal. I love simple.

  2. This is great. My word for 2015 is pursue. I plan to pursue God more and let him pursue me more.
    God Bless - Kimberley

  3. Simplifying everything is a great goal! I don't make annual resolutions, but I do make monthly goals. Having small, actionable goals helps me obtain them.
