New years often mean restarts, new goals, and new directions. 2015 for me, while a new year, will be a continuation of a 2014. Rather than restart, like I do most years, this year I choose to continue to build.
2014 was a pivotal year for me. I was laid off from my day job in early March and spent the rest of the year refocusing and truly building a "business that fills my heart (my main goal for 2014)." I also accomplished my two other goals, a daily gratitude practice and at least twenty minutes of creativity or just making.
So for me, 2015 will be more of the same. My tactics will change and I'll talk more about that over the next couple of weeks, but my primary goals won't.
I have decided to try something new for 2015 that I haven't done in the past. Along with my three goals, I'm choosing a word. My word: BOLD.
According to Dictionary.com, bold is an adjective, that means:
- not hesitating or fearful in the face of actual or possible danger or rebuff; courageous and daring
- beyond the usual limits of conventional thought or action; imaginative
- not hesitating to break the rules of propriety; forward; impudent
