My Word for 2015….
I’ve been here, literally, for easily almost 2 hours, desperately trying to find the perfect word to award mine for the new year. Gilmore Girls streaming on Netflix, kitchen breaks for chocolate or wine, frantically searching The Saurus, my dog by my side, that’s the scene in my living room right now. The past two years I have done this fun assignment, I have easily known what that word would be. 2015? None has felt just right for what I am wanting to focus on. Just what am I going after? I want to explore my surroundings, discover new adventures, expand the blog, feel good, enjoy my wonderful life & my family, love my boyfriend, Hammy, have fun.
I am pretty damn lucky; I have it all in my ‘all’ own way, & I want to take advantage of that & this one little life I have been given. So, word?? One to combine all of that? Pretty please?
Well, ladies & gents, I have chosen ONWARD to represent my year ahead. Onward to new things. new opportunities, new friends, new adventures, new hobbies…you get the idea.
“Carry On” was also in the running, as was being ‘persistent’ & ‘content’, but, we’ve already had focuses on those words in the past; I still stand by & love my word I chose last year: Cheers! A salute I have been lucky to say & act upon, more than once, this past 2014.
How has this year been for you? I know for many, it was not such a great year. Another reason for ONWARD to be an anthem; Onward & upward to a new start, beginning. Don’t look back, just keep swimming. Er, moving.
I’ve also been thinking a quite good amount on GOALS & where I want to go, literally, in this new year. Not only am I passionate to keep Along Comes Mary alive & thriving, but, I hope to get you out of my neighborhood much more than last year; I love Los Angeles, where I am based, but I know I love this world, the bit more I have seen as months have gone by.
2014 definitely shaped up to one of my greatest years yet; with travels throughout California, concerts, friends, love, a new house & plenty of great food, I can only hope 2015 can outdo itself. You know how I’ll find out? Moving ONWARD to see whats in store! xo
