It’s taken me about six weeks (and four complete re-writes) to finally finish this blog post about my word for 2015 – “focus”. I guess I really do need to work on focusing?
Or maybe I really didn’t want to focus on reflecting on 2014… and what I’d like for 2015 to hold.
Because really – 2014 is in the past. It was an amazing year for both blessings and hardships, and what I had “hoped” for in 2014 was completely different from the results.
But the results for 2014 weren’t bad at all – we survived a traumatic event and came out even stronger and wiser. I made a huge shift in my business, growing it so much in 8 months that I’m turning people away daily. I moved forward, but not in the ways I envisioned.
So what do I want for 2015?
To focus on what matters, and not let the rest of the world distract me.
- Start regularly blogging again, here at Our Misadventures.
- Continue to make healthier decisions – and not focus on goals, but health.
- Focus on relationships, instead of being “too busy” to be social.
- Stop focusing on the details, learn to enjoy simplicity. Anxiety takes away too much of my focus.
- Focus on wasting less (time, money, food, etc,) by learning to plan better.
- Use my knowledge and skills to focus on helping others.
Will these goals stay the same throughout the year? Who knows. Last year I was all about “forward” and I most definitely moved forward significantly – just not in the ways I had imagined. If I can simply learn to focus more on what matters, 2015 will be a success.
