One Word

We've learned to keep it real when it comes to New Year's resolutions.

As much as we'd like to rhyme off a whole bunch of specific goals that we'd like to achieve in the coming year, we think we're better off picking a word - and moving our growth, goals, and challenges in that one direction.

So this year's word - PURSUIT. A nice big word that, to us, is a big ol' call to action...a fire to be lit. We can apply its intention to our marriage and family, our relationships, our careers, our health, our finances, and our involvement in the greater community.

So we whipped up a quick wordle, printed it out, and put our word in a frame we had lying around (from the dollar store). Now tucked into a high-traffic corner of our kitchen, our word is there for us to see pretty darn often.

We'll see how we do...!

How about you? Do you prefer the big resolution list or do you have better success picking a goal for the whole year? Has the 'one word for the year' trick ever worked for you? Any which way, let us know in the comments.

Off to pursue-it!

We linked up to the Lettered Cottage's "Word of the Year" link party. See more 'words' over there!
