In lieu of making resolutions, I have selected one little word to serve as my guide throughout the year: focus.
(If you’re not familiar with the One Little Word concept, you can read more about it here and here.)
I believe the word focus sums up what I want and need right now. I’ve developed a bad habit of trying to do too many things at once and not always finishing what I start. I begin projects with enthusiasm and good intentions, but somewhere along the way I get frustrated, lose interest or get distracted. This year, I will remind myself to focus on finishing what I start, focus on organizing one thing at a time, focus on what is important to me, and even focus on taking more photos (see how I got all clever there?).
So when I start organizing a room and get sidetracked on Pinterest for two hours and then get discouraged because my room doesn’t look like it came from the pages of Better Homes and Gardens, I will take a deep breath… and remind myself to focus.
What’s your one little word for 2013?
