I love the start of the year, with the flip of a calendar page we are filled with optimism of what’s to come. I’m not one to make a lot of resolutions… because I never follow through. Do you? Does anyone?
That’s why the One Word posts I have been seeing EVERYWHERE spoke to me. One word that keeps you on track. A focus. If you choose the right word, it can work for anything.
I kind of, sort of did this last year… you see I’m a little wishy-washy. I tend to over commit and under deliver. It drives me crazy.
My focus last year was fitness. I chose GET FIT. Last year was also the year I found Tone It Up. And it was the first time I stuck with a fitness for an entire year! Did I get the body I dreamed of? No. Did I have setbacks and feel like giving up? You bet. But I always found my way back and changed my mindset on fitness. It was no longer something I dreaded, I actually look forward to it. And overall I did get more fit and I am continuing my fitness journey.
So this year, I chose my word very carefully. I have taken on a lot more in the last year and have felt like I was always failing at something.
My One Word for 2016: Commit
I commit to my family. They will always be my priority.
I commit to my health. I have this one body, I will take care of it. I may not get that “perfect” body, but I will have a healthy heart and a healthy mind. I’m starting the year strong with another Tone It Up challenge and Yoga Camp. Follow me on Instagram to keep tabs on my progress.
I commit to my business. My Rodan + Fields business is good to me, when I focus on it. My focus has been a little all over the place because I took on a bit too much last year. Back to the basics of network marketing – TALK TO PEOPLE! I love sharing this business and these products, so I will be doing more of that in 2016!
I commit to this blog. This was my new endeavor for 2015 and it is so much more work than I thought it would be. The business behind it, the social media aspect, the writing… it’s a lot. I have so much respect for all of my fellow bloggers. I’ve learned so much, it has made my head spin. But I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me!
I commit to kindness. Simply because the world needs more kindness. And kindness is contagious.
I commit to fun. Because this thing called life should be FUN! Sometimes we get so serious about things we forget we should be having fun while we are doing it, otherwise what’s the point?
And most importantly I commit to myself. I want to make myself proud by accomplishing the goals I set. I will have to be a little selfish. That will mean saying “no” a lot more. I can’t be everything to everyone or do everything myself… as much as I would like to. I will only say “yes” to the things I truly want/can to do, outside of my normal mom duties. Who wants to change more diapers? Maybe I will commit to potty training!!
