Purpose. That’s my word of the year this year. I don’t do resolutions as you all know, but what I do try and stick with is something that inspires me, such as a word. Something I can always remember, instead of feeling guilty for eating ice cream if my new years resolution was to lose 20 pounds. See, words of the year are much more appropriate and don’t bring on the guilt. ;)
Why did I choose purpose?
Because I want everything I do to have a purpose. Whether it be decor in our home, helping others, serving, sharing more about what essential oils can do, mothering, being a wife…I want to do them all purposefully.
What I don’t want to do is create some “out there” craft just because I have to or to try and be the blogger with the most outlandish project just to earn new visitors. The reality is, we don’t have room to store anything else. And because I just don’t want to do that! That’s not doing something with purpose. Unless of course you are creating something on purpose to gain attraction. The Lord knows we have all seen enough duct tape projects right? ;)
I want to do things to our home this year that are well thought out, will bring value, things that WE love, and things that again of course, have a purpose.
Crappy crafts or spray painting some wood just for the sake of spray painting, is not on my 2015 to-do list. I’m already feeling a purge coming on…
I am not the blogger that will have the best creative ideas. There are WAY more people that are much more creative than me. I have no shame in admitting that. But what I will say and admit, is that I am here to just do what I love. To hopefully inspire you to do things in your home that you love too. Not to be better than anyone else. Just to do the things you do with purpose.
Have you thought about what word of the year you want this year? It’s not too late to think of one. A word is something you can commit to, and remember, not feel guilty over. :)
Hope your new year has started off great so far!!
