I have set some blogging and reading goals for 2015, and I have also some personal goals like “take care of myself and be gentle with myself” as I highlighted for the #12DaysofBooks organized by YA Buccaneers.
For the few past years, I’ve also chosen a word (or words) for the year. In 2013, it was PERSEVERANCE and ENJOY. In 2014, I chose BALANCE.
And both in 2013 & 2014, I wrote things that still resonate quite a bit with present Elodie.
- In 2013, I wrote “But…I also need to fully enjoy the happy moments like those ones. I need to not be afraid of what could come and look forward to what I can make happen.”
- And in 2014, “Another element is to let go of the things I cannot control and of the negative talk (–> this one is really tough). You know the one I am talking about: “I should have had, I shouldn’t have had, it shouldn’t be, it will never…”
I need to let go of whatever I cannot change (yes. feel free to sing Let It Go, I know I am :P)
My word for 2015 is PRESENT (it’s the same as Katy’s. I probably could have copied her entire post on that one) and I think it encompasses what 2013 & 2014 Elodie wrote in this blog. I want to be present in the moment, I want to really pay attention, I want to enjoy the laughs fully, I want to pause and give my full attention to the little moments that make the big ones, and the big moments which are made of so many little ones.
I want to be present.
Do you have a word for 2015?

I love that “be here now” image, and that’s totally the mindset I want to remain in for the coming year — and beyond! Best of luck staying present and meeting your goals. I’m rooting for you, Elodie! ❤
That image is beautiful! Sometimes it’s so hard to let yourself sit in the moment and not worry about future, past, etc. Definitely a feeling I think most people struggle with—beautifully said: “I want to pause and give my full attention to the little moments that make the big ones, and the big moments which are made of so many little ones.” Good luck this year! 🙂
Present is such a good one and was my word for 2013! I think it’s always a good thing to keep in mind in order to enjoy life as it comes at you. 🙂 My word for 2015 is Change.
