Happy 2016!! We are a handful of days in, and it's been great so far!! I am so excited to see what 2016 has in store for me; I don't have anything specific on the horizon for this year and there are no major life changes that I need to make. This year will be a surprise, and I'm looking forward to seeing it unveil.
Last year, one of my favourite bloggers, Jenn, asked what my word for 2015 was going to be. After some thought, I came up with my word- Happy. It was the first time I had a 'word of the year' and I decided I would do it again for 2016.
I put some thought into what I wanted my word to be. I really struggled to come up with something that would encompass what I wanted the year ahead to be, what word I wanted to 'bring to life' and apply to my life, what I wanted my focus for the coming year to be.
Someone I greatly admire and have oodles of respect for is Brittany; she is seriously one incredible, inspiring woman. Towards the end of December, I went through her Instagram feed. looking to be inspired- both by her creative spirit, her fantastic decorating skills, and just her attitude and outlook for life. There was a word that kept coming up in her feed. After giving it some thought, I decided that would be my word for 2016.
My 2016 word of the year is...
I like to think that I am, for the most part, a kind person. But I also know that i can be pretty blunt and to the point. I also know that I can be so busy or in a rush, that I just don't bother to be kind. It's not that I'm mean or anything...but I might forget to ask someone how there weekend was. Small things like that.
In 2016, I want to focus on kind. I am going to be kinder in my approach to life, more considerate of others, and just be really intentional about being kind.
After all, if we were all a little more kind, the world would be a better place.
