I have thought long and hard about my “word of the year” for 2016. For 2014 I chose free and indeed, it was a very freeing year. Last year I chose the word fancy. Fancy suited me last year and I believe that I had a very fancy year. This year, I am sticking with the “F” theme I seem to have going and have chosen the word focus to be my word of 2016.
This is the year I will buckle down and really focus and get stuff done.
I am going to focus on school this year especially beucase provided everything goes as planned, I graduate in May with my second bachelor’s degree! I clearly remember the day I decided to go back to school and it has been one hell of a ride ever since. I have worked extremely hard the past three years working full time, blogging, and maintaining some semblance of a social life. It’s been hard but wit will all be worth it in May!!!
I am going to focus on this blog and really see where I can take it this year. Through this blog I have met some of my very best friends, been afforded some very amazing opportunities, made a little money, and really discovered my passion for writing and capturing moments.
I am going to to focus on the future. I have no idea what I will do after I graduate in May. I do know that I will keep working as a Respiratory Therapist because I really do love my job and the benefits are amazing. I have a full time job as well as a PRN job and I really hope to cut back on my hours at my PRN job after graduation so I can focus more on my writing and see where that goes. You never know…
I am going to focus more on doing more saving and less spending. I think everyone could say that, right? LOL!! But really though…I have been on a mission to pay off all of my debt and I am slowly but surely working on it. Do you know how good it feels to cut up a credit/store card after you pay it off?? AMAZING. I plan to do a lot more of that this year for sure!! No more keeping cards because of discounts or special sales. Ugh. Over it!
I am going to focus more on just doing me. If it doesn’t make me happy or fit into my crazy schedule I am just going to say no. This will definitely be hard for me because I am such a people pleaser!! I am also not going to worry what other people may think about me. Someone called me a nerd the other day when I told them I listened to audiobooks instead of music on my way to work and I loved that. Normally it would have made me mad but whatever. I love reading and don’t get much time to do it so audiobooks it is!! I love my audiobooks!! I am a proud NERD!!
I am also going to focus more on my health this year. I am turning 33 next month and have just recently come to the realization that we only get one chance at life. One body. One mind. One chance to get it right. So instead of wasting time not being happy with how I look and how I feel I am really going to do something about it. I don’t want to screw up the one chance I have at feeling and looking healthy because I am not getting any younger. Ugh.
Focus. Such a good word. I am glad I chose that as my word of the year and hope I can live up to it!!
Did you choose a word for the year??
If so, what is it??
