Are you ready for my word of the year???
Now this isn't complete as in "my final year", no, no, no. It means much more than that.
One of the best qualities about my best friend that I have always admired was her self-discipline and goal attainment.
I, on the other hand, lack this lustrous trait. At least, I am hard on myself about it. So, partially, that is what this year's word has to deal with...completing (finishing) things.
The other use of this word for the year is to have it be a utility to help my own personal growth and fulfillment. Not to brag, but things have been going very well for my life comparatively to the cesspool that is surrounding others. I acknowledge my fortunate state and I want to embrace it. I think it still carries on from last year's word "Content". I feel very fulfilled in many areas and want to enjoy that and help finish what it will take to complete the areas of my life that need filled in.
So what are those areas?
Academics -- to complete my Sociology accreditation by August
Physically -- to really push to the goal I have with my weight and complete it. I'd like to complete a full workout regiment too, most likely a Beachbody one. I've got my annual 5K PanCan race in May too. And I want to add a race with the boys sometime.
Family -- continue creating and completing memories. We have a summer vacation planned and I have a summer project that we've been holding onto for too long that I want to complete.
Hobbies -- complete Scrapbooks for 2013, 2014, 2015 and Cora's baby book (woof, this will be a challenge!), and complete my second bullet journal.
Household -- complete purging my house of all of the crap that finds it's way here. It is getting easier as the kids get older and sentimental items lose their meaning a little more each year. Organization is getting better. I also want to start to completing a Budget monthly to help track my spending. Continue my automatic savings plan and pay CASH for next Christmas (this year was close).
Reading -- read three books for fun. Three you say?! Yes, it is a lowly number. However I actually up'd my reading game last year and read two! Plus the amount I am reading nightly/weekly for my class on top of normal classroom grading/planning has my brain swimming with words thank you very much.
Mentally -- work on completing my thoughts and simple tasks. Call it mommy brain, middle age, or too much multi-tasking but I was a wreck last year with hopping around too much in my mind. Calm, complete, purposeful thoughts would be nice for a change.
Mini-challenges -- complete some of these as they suit me. 1) No FB for a week, then see if I can grow from there 2) Write cards to people I love and miss 3) No cussing, this might need to start out as a day-to-day one 4) Get to be before midnight for a week straight.
That is where I am heading so far. What do you have in store for 2017?
