My Word for 2015

I absolutely love the New Year. The idea of a fresh start, renewal, and the chance to reflect on the passage of the previous year is really inspiring for me. I love to think about all of the possibility that exists in the next 365 days. I can let go of the things I didn't feel I accomplish and give myself a clean slate to start again. 

Over the past few weeks, I've been thinking about what I want to feel in 2015 and what some of my goals and plans are for the year. In doing so, I've decided to choose a word to guide my intentions for the upcoming year - peace

I want to be at peace with whatever comes my way in 2015. I want to stay in the moment and not constantly second-guess myself or feel worry, anxiety, or guilt with my decisions. I want to take better care of myself in whatever way feels peaceful to me. 

I want to feel at peace and content with what I have and who I am. I want to let go of  the excess that overwhelms my space and life. I want to be okay with taking risks and not fear making mistakes, at work or in my creative projects. 

I want a peaceful home life, by being more mindful of sticking to my budget, cooking more, and not striving for perfection all the time. I want to feel peace in my relationships with my husband, my family, my friends, and strengthen those connections by sharing and communicating with authenticity and honesty.

I'm truly looking forward to all that this new year has to offer. I hope all of you are, too. 

P.S. If you are still working on reflecting on 2014 and setting any intentions or goals for the new year, you might want to check out Susannah Conway's Unravelling the Year Ahead workbook.  It's free and has been immensely helpful to me.
