I have seen many people post about their resolutions for 2014. I am not going to say I am not a fan of resolutions, but I have a tendency to forget about them from time to time... okay, most of the time. Like after January 15, I am no longer holding up my end of the deal.

I was chatting with a friend the other day and she mentioned she was doing a word for the year. Something to strive towards each day to make herself better. She decided on the word "valued." I thought about this my whole drive home and thought this was a pretty good idea. But, thinking of a word for the year was much harder than I had considered. It took me a few days after the Jan. 1 deadline to come up with something, but I have finally settled on two words. Before I reveal my awesome words, I have also decided to make a list of things to accomplish. I felt like making a list of 60  things (hopefully five for each month) would be a more realistic goal for me being as this is my first year to try something of this nature.

My words for this year are ... wait for it... "SPREAD JOY!" I follow @carolinegshops on IG and she does some awesome things every day to make people happy around her, which contributed into the words I picked for the year. I have several thoughts in my head of how I am going to accomplish this, but nothing concrete as of this moment. More deets to come!

So, now onto my list-- in no particular order--

  1. Donate my hair to Children With Hair Loss
  2. Get an awesome job! {Fingers crossed!}
