2015 – Believe

No.91

12th Jan 2015

Another brand new shiny new year has started and with it are all the promises of doing this one better, which in reality I find a bit overwhelming, if I’m being honest. I keep searching for something that doesn’t reek of new years cliches and eventual let downs come March when the bad habits slowly creep back in and the new year’s promises are soon forgotten.

So this year I’m going to try to take another approach and unload all that pressure that comes with all the thoughts of exercising more, eating better, working harder, blah blah blah. Instead I’m going to have tiny goals for each month and if I’m able to build on them fine but if I only manage to get the tiny goals done that’s great too. In taking smaller steps, I’m hoping I’ll naturally make progress and positive changes in my life. Each month I’ll look at my list and see what I accomplished and where I need to try a little harder so I can make adjustments, if something isn’t working or getting better then maybe I need to re-evaluate why and if it’s really important to me. I’ll let you know how that goes, as everything it’s experimenting and seeing what truly works so at the of 2015 I can feel good about my choices and growth.

I received a wonderful Secret Santa gift from one of the gals in our Unravelling group, (we do this every year since we took Susannah’s online course together), it was a temporary tattoo that says BELIEVE. Volia there was my word for 2015 and I knew it right away, yes that is exactly what I need to start practicing because…

BELIEVE I can do it.

BELIEVE in my dreams and want to take small steps to accomplishing them.

BELIEVE in my choices whether good or bad, it’s all about trying things out.

BELIEVE I can move past my fears that hold me back.

BELIEVE in my relationship with my husband and the love we share.

BELIEVE challenges will present themselves and I will have work through them.

BELIEVE I’m a good Mother and I will continue to learn and grow with my daughter.

BELIEVE in travel and new adventure because they make me happy.

BELIEVE in this new year and all it can hold.

It’s easy to get caught up in routines and responsibilities, so adding some Believing magic to my life will hopefully make it feel all possible.

I love hearing from you, so if you feel like sharing your word and why you chose it, leave a comment below!

  1. Very nicely stated, Brandy. I think that when you open yourself up to the possibilities that the universe sends your way and you believe in yourself, all things become possible. And if some things don’t happen, that’s OK.
    As I told you, my word is “serene” which for me means mindfulness, a positive outlook and a quiet state of mind. I am finding that starting a yoga practice and learning to meditate has already brought some changes in how I feel both mentally and physically. I can’t fix everything and everyone and that’s OK.
    P.S. We think you are an amazing mom to our sweetpea and very generous to her grandma. xox
