EVOLVE: MY WORD OF THE YEAR

January 15, 2018 in Lifestyle - 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.

    • 💫 Thank goodness for Sundays! It’s been a long week and I cannot wait to just chill & watch 🎬 movies today. I thought I would give little update on how I’m getting on with the ⭐️NEW #BioluminCeye serum #gifted from @DermalogicaUK. It’s really nice to just brush over your 🧖🏼‍♀️ eyes in the morning & really perks me up (I literally reach for all my morning skincare as soon as I 😴 wake up). My under eye area feels a lot brighter & softer after use from these past couple of weeks. Pretty sure, I’m gonna have to 🛍 restock this one soon! 💖#skinfluencer
    • ✨ if only my week was as magical as these cute little tea lights. This week has literally been sponsored by lemon tea ☕️ & throat sweets 🍬 I’ve been off sick that last couple of days and I can tell you it is not ideal. ❄️ Isn’t the weather so bitterly cold in Cambridge recently? Not great when you’re under the weather with a cold! 🥶💖
    • 💫 And just like that, we’ve got through Monday.👊🏼 I had throughly enjoyed my weekend of just taking things slowly and chilling, I definitely need to have more weekends like this.✨ Since moving, I honestly love just hanging out in our living room because the space is sooo bright (can’t wait for longer ☀️days) and also I just feel so cosy here. 😻 Fee has her little spot at the end, right next to the radiator for the colder days too. I think I just need to get a few more pictures 📸 on the wall (currently being very fussy), maybe some more 🛋 cushions & definitely some more house plants. 🌿 Any home decor reccomendations? 💫
    • 🌟 Sunday’s are for doing the things you love.✨ That’s why my day will consist of 👩🏼‍💻blogging, ☕️ drinking massive amounts tea, 📸 scrapbooking and 📺 binging a little bit of Netflix. What does your Sunday look like? 💖
    • 💫I’m so glad we are hitting Friday tomorrow! Is it just me or has this week lasted for like, a year? I have a new blog post 👩🏼‍💻up though all about one of my new favourite coffee ☕️ spots in Cambridge. ✨ PLEASE go check this place out and treat yo’self if you’re local. The food is just divine. 💖
    • C’est fini! 🎉Really pleased to have finished my third book 📚 of the year & the 1st book of @bethsbookclub_ for 2020. Can I just say, this is SUCH a heartwarming💖 but also heartbreaking story! I didn’t want to love Ove as much as I did but I just couldn’t help it, really looking forward to chatting 👩🏼‍💻to everyone about this book later in the month. Now I need new book 📖 recommendations, what’s on your current reading list? 💫 #2020reads
