My 2014 Resolution

I can’t begin to express how much I’m looking forward to 2014 (tomorrow).

While I’m trying really, really hard not to meticulously plan it all out – because that never really works, does it? – I’m anticipating happy times.

2013 was a year of change for us, with many highs and lows, and overall I’m proud of myself for refusing to settle. But I have some high expectations for myself  next year, and so I knew I needed to dig deep when picking a word for 2014.

Drumroll, please….


I have this beautiful vision of what I want my life to look like, and I believe that consciously making choices is the way to get there…even if the “there” changes every now and then.

There are several resources available that address this very concept, a few of which I’ve listed below:

Jess Lively – Designing a Life with Intention

Stephen Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

To me, it’s all about knowing why I’m making the choices that I am.

Am I doing something just because I think should be, because someone else is doing it or because it’s moving me towards the life I envision for myself?

And my goal is that my answer would continually be the latter. So I’ll keep you posted.

Happy New Year’s Eve!
