Happy 2015!! Does everyone have their lists and lists of goals all ready to go for the new year?! I know I sure don’t! But I do love to pick out a word for the new year and then look back to see if it was a good one! I started to do this after I bought my flower shop as a way to see my growth over the years. Might be fun?!
My word for 2014 was bloom! Seemed pretty appropriate since I had just bought a flower shop in May. But also I picked this word because bloom can mean to open up and grow (I did not look up the exact definition though). Little did I know that’s exactly what would happen a few weeks later and really not stop the whole year. I’d have to say 2014 was the year I grew the most and I could not be more thankful for last year!
Over the next few months, I’m going to share some reasons/experiences for this amazing growth and change! But for now, my new 2015 word…clarity!!! To me this means a sense of calm, focusing on what really matters, seeing things for what they truly are and just being able to BE. Last year I fought so hard to try to define my brand and be my own designer which stressed me way out! So this year, I’m going to try to take those bad/stressful moments from the past and learn from them so they don’t happen again. I know I won’t be perfect or even close to it, but adding some clarity to my life is very important! Even if there’s not a difference right away, I’m not going to give up because it can happen at any time. There’s this quote I love from Lara Casey “there is nothing magical about January 1”. So true! Let’s not put tons of pressure on ourselves to make it all happen right away because magic can happen at any time!
