EVOLVE: MY WORD OF THE YEAR

January 15, 2018 in Lifestyle, Mindfulness - 2 Comments - 2 min read

 

This year I’m all about changing my mindset and one of my strategies is to choose a word of the year. A word thats a reminder for what I’m trying to achieve and that i’m trying do in 2018.

I find January the perfect time to set that word and fully understand the meaning and strategy to do that. My purpose for choosing one word is to define the year ahead, and also keep a vision in mind for this year. So whats my word for the year?

EVOLVE

I’m very determined these year to leave my scattered plans behind and keep myself focus in everything professional and personal. I mean have you ever felt scattered and slightly frazzled with “too many balls in the air?” I think thats the best way to describe. However towards the end of last year, I knew I could change my mindset and attitude if a I really thought about it and worked towards it.

I will EVOLVE on unifying my goals. If you’ve read my blog before, you will see that I set myself a series of New Year goals to help myself achieve the best 2018. After setting these goals, I thought about how I could associate my word of the year with these goals. Instantly I knew I had to put my goals in several places in order to keep my focus and EVOLVE throughout the yearTherefore, I’ve pinned them to my desk, created a vision board and created a checklist in my phone. Its working and its because the word and concept of EVOLVING is guiding me.

 

Want to choose yourself a word for 2018?

Its not too late! We have a 11 months and little bit left of this year and a word of the year might help you broaden your goals and mindset. I suggest having a little brainstorm on what words your aspire to and what words resonate with you. Once you have a selection, think about what you want to achieve in different areas in your life and if that words fits in.

For example:

In my career, I want to EVOLVE

For my family & friends, I will EVOLVE

For my health & wellbeing, I will EVOLVE

For my hobbies & interests, I will EVOLVE

For my personal growth I will aspire to EVOLVE

Make some tea, put your phone on do not disturb and crack open a new notebook (smell those fresh pages!), now’s the time to be shamelessly selfish and take a bit of time for you.

 

I’d love to hear your word for 2018 in the comments below!

    Evolving is a perfect word for the year. Mine’s ‘self-love’ – cheating & using two words but it’s definitely the aim of 2018 for me.

    • ✨ “Consider the possibilities” This is my upbeat attitude for the week. ✨BUT I am so blissfully happy Monday is over. 👌🏼Although I’ve had a good day at work, smashed through lots. 🤜🏻 I can definitely feel a cold 🥶 coming on. So I’m very happy to be snuggled on the sofa, 💑 watching a movie. Which makes me wonder... what’s your go to movie 🎬 to watch when you’re feeling a little poorly?! 🤔
    • ✨ A slow Sunday has been just what’s needed after yesterday. The most mammoth of all migraines🤮 took over and I only really feel as though I’ve just come out the other side! 🌷However, to cheer myself up and pull myself together I’ve spent the day cleaning the house, 🧽 making little corners all pretty 💖and homey. 🏡 Just makes me feel a little better! Was also slightly gutted I couldn’t pop into town to grab some of the lush Halloween 🎃 collection! I was lucky enough to be intuited the the #prevent on Thursday, to have a little look at the goodies & even makes my own bath bomb! 🎉Did you manage to grab Halloween goodies? 👻
    • ✨“Flowers can’t solve all problems, but they’re a great start”. 🌺 I have been looking for something to brighten up the front of our house 🏡(as currently our row of houses look very uniform) & this little plant tower from @flowerbarltd has given me a few ideas.. literally haven’t stopped thinking about how I could recreate this - I’m thinking about getting a little step ladder of plants?! 🌺🌷🎉
    • ✨ Tuesday can be such ‘meh’ days, right? 😩Although I feel like I really smashed 🤜🏻through my Monday - Tuesday has made feel a little snowed under. A slightly stressful feeling! 🙄However, I’ve managed to crawl home, receive enormous amounts of Kitty love 😻 off of my fur baby - which has taken that ‘overwhelmed’ feeling away. Now, I’ve taken myself for a piping hot bath 🛀& shoved a facemask 🧖🏼‍♀️on - just so I can be all ready, cosy on the sofa 🛋(like a warm toasty cinnamon 🤤bun) just in time for bake off. Bring on bread week! 🍞🥖🎉 🤫➡️ P.s it’s actually the first year I’m watching bake off - can you believe it’s taken me 10 years? 😱✨
    • 🌧 Drizzle, drizzle ☔️ While it might not have been the best day, weather wise. I can’t help but feel I’ve had a pretty good start to the week.⭐️ Managed to be the first one in the office,👌🏼 which meant I got to blitz through a few emails 📩 before the day really kicked off! Then somehow managed to bag myself a free lunch 🍲which was divineee.😋 Back home to see that my roses 💐 are looking pretty for week. Now, it’s time for a little 🥘dinner to warm up, a snuggle 💑 on the sofa & a feel good 🎬 movie. What are your Monday evening plans? ✨
    • ✨ September has always felt like the perfect month for changes and fresh starts. Why? 🤔Well this week I started my digital marketing degree 📒which I’m super excited to do! What’s even better, is my work is supporting me through my learning period while I add a little more to my plate to juggle. It’s been really exciting & I’ve been buying all the stationery to colour code my revision notes. 😂 So I’m sure you’ll see me going crazy 🤪 on stories when I’m making notes (feel free to send me a response telling me to get back to studying! 😂). Like today I had to drag myself away from my Sunday lie in 💤to stay on track with my first module. 🤭 But on the whole I’m really excited! ➡️Side note: I know some of you who follow will know I already work in digital marketing - mainly social media, 👩🏼‍💻so why bother right?? Well over the last few months in my job I became really conscious of some gaps in my knowledge & While I really want to advance in my job, I know I need to spend some time learning. 👩🏼‍🏫It’s going to tough sometimes to balance work & study but it’s something I’m doing for me & that just makes me determined. 👌🏼💪🏼 ➡️ BUT that’s enough studying for today, so I’m off for a community BBQ 🌭in my new neighbourhood! Have a beautiful rest of Sunday! 🎉
