Yours Truly

The Word: 2015

January 7, 2015

Last year my word for the year was ‘Live’.

Somewhere around the summer I completely forgot about it to be honest. All of my good intentions for last year faded as I came off my antidepressants and had to find my way all over again. I went from living to surviving. And you know what, that is okay. I am still just so happy that the pills have served their purpose and are now gone. At the start of last year I would never have been able to imagine that and so I am very happy indeed. 2014 was a really good year.

And so to this year. It feels like a good one already. I can feel my cold tired self feeling slightly revived by those few precious extra minutes of light a day. I feel good about the changes that will be happening this year. Kate starting school is bound to have a massive impact. No more babies, no more children at home during the day. That alone signals the end of this period of our lives. And then naturally I need to think about me and what I do when they are both at school. What do I want to do? (Answer: no idea at all at the moment!)

My word for this year is:



(to grow strongly and vigorously – to do well; prosper)

I want to take care of my family so that they have the room to grow and flourish. I want to spend time thinking about what makes me happy and then spend my time doing those things as much as I can. I want to find my new path and be energised and excited to follow it. I want to grow as a person, to learn, to think, to dream. I want to look after myself and treat my body better so that it can help me prosper and grow. I want to improve myself – as a parent, a friend, a wife. I want to do wonderful things this year.

And so I don’t lose sight of this word this year I am going to put it up in my house somewhere in someway. Watch this space!

Last year was a good year. This year is going to be a great year.

Do you have a word for 2015?

    Good word. Sticking the word up is a simple and clever idea – I should do this.

    Hope 2015 is good to you.

      Ah yes, sorry about that it was a video on an old post!

      No need to rush for a word, it will come to you. Maybe you need a new word each month to go along with your other monthly intentions.
