Happy New Year, Citizens!

Happy New Year, everyone! Sorry I haven't been around on the interwebs as much as usual. The culmination of a year's worth of meetings presided over by those iron-fisted, yet extremely rambly blue haired old ladies is finally coming to fruition tonight. Yes, the ginormous breeches are dropping.

I've been running around getting ready for the kids crafts I'll be running for the night and picking up last minute items for the committee. Because the big drop is tonight!

The Urchins are predictably and massively whipped up. I'm trying to channel all that excitement into thank you cards. Somehow there doesn't seem to be a good translation from UBER EXCITING FUN WAAAAAY PAST OUR NORMAL BEDTIME!!! to sit and with grateful heart, thank your Great Great Aunt Emily for the check she sent you. Go figure.

Anywho, I tweeted earlier this week while I was slaving away at Staples prepping one of the crafts for tonight, and I thought I'd share.

Pictured above are one-word resolutions and wishes for the new year. The writer in me really liked the idea of choosing one word to describe goals and wishes for the entire year. It cuts down the extraneous distractions that get me every time (ooh! Is that a chicken over there?) to a laser sharp idea.

Write
Read
Create

It's not a replacement for definable goals, but more like a mantra or billboard reminder of what it is you truly want to accomplish.

So as we leave 2014 behind, what are some words you'd like to focus on in 2015?

Have a safe and wonderful New Year's Eve!! I'll be back in 2015 with the NYE drop recap and the 2014 year in review. Until then, Citizens!

I bet the night will be great because you had a part of it.
Happy New Year to you and yours.

Happy 2015 with a great big side of Boogie Boogie.

Last year my focus was joy/happiness, and this year my focus is health - mind, body, soul, and spirit. Thanks for this post! Awesome! :)

Happy New Year! Create is a big one on my list. And so is Revise!

I have also been abominable about blog reading... just so much going on.

I like the one word idea. It's something to aspire to, which makes it more achievable.

Write is a good one for me. I need to just sit butt in chair and do it!

Write and create are sure ones that work for me. Happy new year

Write, Read, Create. Holy Ginormous Breech-Drop, Ava, that’s an awesome mantra. I can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2015. :)

I love your mantra. My son has been on a perminant excitement rush since Christmas Eve and I've yet to figure out a way to calm him down, lol here's hoping you have more success with yours and also a happy healthy 2015for you and your family xx

hope your new year's was amazing! I hope to focus on All The Words, as I want to finish my next MS by march! :)

Where's the pic of the ginormous pants? I wanna see! lol Yeah, thank-you cards were my downfall as a kid too. Hated those things. (But loved the gifts!) Have a great 2015!

Stephanie Faris said...

I like those resolutions. They're perfect!

Kate Larkindale said...

Write is the big one on my list. I never need to resolve to read….

Liz Blocker said...

Happy New Year, Ava!!! I can't wait to see pics of the drop and read the recap. Things are never dull where you are, huh? It's awesome.

"Write. Read. Create" is a PERFECT resolution. I am stealing it. The end.

;)

I love it. Happy New Year! I'm focusing on optimism--but mostly inside my head. It's so easy to create a negative mental dialog, but if we really want to be productive, a positive focus will get us there way faster than anything else. =)

Write, Read, Create . . . I love it!!!

Happy New Year, Ava!!! :D
