Every year I have been choosing a word to focus on. The past few years I’ve done More, Less, and Christ-like. My 2015 word is going to be Earnest:
You can see last year’s goals and word here: (2014 Goals and Word of the Year). I like choosing a word to focus on because it sets the whole theme for the year. It becomes a motto of sorts and whenever I start questioning “What have I done this year?” I can think about my word and see the changes it has helped bring about. If you haven’t chosen your word yet, or if this is the first year you are choosing one, might I recommend Earnest?
I chose this word because
I love that it emphasizes sincerity and conviction. Far too often we go through tasks completing only the motions. I want to be sincere in what I do and have intense conviction.
I also have a list of goals, personal growth items, things to do, etc. To make it a little less complicated I’ve separated them by category:
When I started my blog, I started it as a personal journal/diary. I didn’t really expect it to grow, but I wanted to share my journey with others. Over the years my blog has grown to be more, and I am hoping to expand it even more in 2015. These goals are blog specific, and probably things I should have done a long time ago.
Delete old blog posts – edit/bump some others for SEO
Make better/Pinnable images
Blog 1-2 times weekly with focus on Reach and interaction
Set up social media scheduled shares
Update social media kit regularly
Promote YouTube channel more!!
Clean sidebar including: About Me. Popular Posts Define and stick to my niche
These goals serve no purpose other than to appease some selfish desires of mine.
These growth goals are both personal and some I’d like for my children. They involve becoming a better person and helping others become better.

Every year I like to do something special with my family. It doesn’t have to be extravagant, but I like to create new memories with them. This year there are a few things I would like to do and a few things that I must do *ahemfamilypictures*. These include:
Take family pictures
Day and Night family prayer
Visit the zoo – maybe a new one
Visit a new park
And that about sums it up. What is one of your goals for 2015?
