every year i choose one little word to focus my intentions on in the new year.
with every move, the word "quality" echoed in my heart.
quality rang true in my journey toward self-love. i lost 20 lb., worked out regularly, & started the #dressinhappiness project. you can find out more about this project here.
quality rang true in my work life. for so long, i was afraid to take that jump because of fear & an overwhelming amount of student debt. in 2014, i made the leap with arms wide open!
quality rang true in my marriage. luke & i shared our hearts openly & unguarded. we attended counseling sessions together & grew even more connected as partners. it makes me weepy when i reflect on 2014 & all of the growth that happened in that space & time.
quality rang true in my friendships. i stayed connected with friends from the past & cultivated deep friendship within our community. i co-led a women's retreat within our church community & created a weekly coffee date for my lady tribe. i am so thankful for the opportunity to share my life with women of quality who inspire & motivate me.
|"pursuit" bracelet by debi dean|
in 2015, my one little word is pursuit.
pursuit, noun: the action of following or pursuing someone or something.
my heart is set on the pursuit of a healthy balance in my work & family life.
i will focus on the pursuit of a clear path in my work life. i will say no so that i may say yes to work that fills me up, inspires others & cultivates joy within my life.
i will focus on the pursuit of saying yes to more time well-spent by saying no to material goods that rob us of our freedom to enjoy life. friends, i am getting off of that consume-more-work-more treadmill!
i believe that our lives are made up of well-crafted & intentional everydays.
how will you make every single day count?
choose one little word & follow me along on this journey, friends!
