FOCUS : Word of the Year 2018

The time of year is upon me when I need to choose my “word of the year“. I’ve been doing it for a few years, and the one year it worked well for me was when I chose “happy”. I almost went with it again for 2018, but instead I chose “FOCUS“.

I’m excited for this year!

My main direction for “FOCUS” will be the second definition. directed attention. I think it’s going to be a good year. I’m ready for something big and new to happen. I know that I am going to have to make it happen, but I am ready to FOCUS on me, on life, on all the things!

Goals for 2018:

Health/Fitness:

  • Focus and finish a fitness program
  • Drink me some Shakeology
  • Get back to the Gym

Family/Friends:

  • Make memories
  • Share love
  • Be present

Writing:

  • Write the novel I originally started planning for November
  • Win NaNoWriMo 2018

Have you chosen a word? How are you going to use it to help you set your goals for 2018?

I don’t know why I had the dream. But it left me feeling very clingy and emotional yesterday.

Thankfully, he understood, and let me cuddle whenever I wanted.

I’m glad it happened the night before his day off.

Laundry is a Pain

I’m a huge fan of taking photos of the every day. Things you see all the time but never really think about.

The washer filling up with water is a big favorite of mine.

I hate doing laundry, but sometimes, to make it less of a dread, I’ll pull out my dSLR and take some pictures of the water filling up the tub. It’s a relaxing sort of feeling.
