One Word 2015 | GROWTH


I’ve been thinking on this year’s one word for a bit now. What do I want to focus on work towards and do in 2015? So many different words came to mind: challenge myself, strive for my dreams, achieve my goals and even pause to embrace each moment. Still something didn’t say ‘yes’ to any of these. So what one word did I want? Which word could be mine for 2015?

The first word I pondered was achieve because I know that I want to make moves towards my goals this year. Yet something about it didn’t feel right. Achieve. Achieve felt like it was simply about getting higher. That’s not what it want. Yes I want to be in a different place by the end of 2015 but I want the ‘getting there‘ to have meaning and purpose.

 

So what word could embrace my desire to reach certain goals but also include the growth needed to do it?

 

Growth. That was it. Growth. This word makes me think of not only reaching and achieving goals and dreams but also making progress and process it can take to get there.

 

One Word 2015 | Growth | MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.com
To have growth you need to take not only the good of where you are but the bad as well to help take you where you are going. That’s what I want to do in 2015. I want to have growth in my life. The things that have made me stumble and hurt those around me I want to take them and learn how to move forward and encourage.

 

As a Woman, the personal issues that may have kept me back and in my comfort zone. I want to overcome and use them as inspiration to step beyond the borders of my comfort and be more than I think I am.

 

As a Mom, I want to learn how to change as my children change. They will always be my babies but they will not always be babies. I want to learn how to parent the child they are not not the child they used to or even the one I thought they were.

 

As a Wife, I know I need to learn how to look beyond myself. I need to begin to take the lessons of our past together and use them to help give us a brighter future.

 

As a Friend, I am excited to allow my friendships to grow beyond being a simple acquaintance but a part of my life. I want to take the chance of trust and hopefully enjoy the benefits of having that can have. I have lived so long only ‘knowing‘ people but never truly allowing them to get to know me. Letting my walls down won’t be easy but I think it will be worth it.

 

So that’s it. I found my word. Though the process took a bit longer than I though I know that for 2015 I desire Growth. When I come to the close of this year I want to know that through the next 52 weeks I have moved from where I am today, learned from being there and come to appreciate the journey it took to leave.

 

What’s your focus for this year?

Can you pick just one word to describe it?

    Growth is great. I love how you covered and described it. I've never given my life a 'word' to focus on but I think I'm definitely trying to be more intentional in my life right now. With everything. So, like my blog. Maybe life 'Intentional.' is my theme.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Kristen! Intentional is a great word to start with. I find having one word helps me not to feel so overwhelmed throughout the year.

  • Vashti Quiroz-Vega

    Hi Tiffany! Growth is a great word. I don't think any of us can reach our goals if we don't grow as people. It's a great word. I wish you lots of happiness, success, and plenty of growth in 2015.

      Thanks Stephanie…I saw the idea for the first time last year and thought it was wonderful. It can be so difficult at times to try and accomplish an entire list…but a word…that I can handle or at least focus on 😉

      Happy New Year!!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Michelle!! It took me longer than last year to come to mine but once you find the right one you will definitely know 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks…it definitely took me longer to get to a word this year but now that I have it I am definitely excited. Intention…that is a wonderful word! I can’t wait to follow your journey with it this year 🙂

  • Hinessightblog

    Great post, and great goals for your word. I need organize right now. I feel that I've been so creative that I've let the organization go….in many places.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thank You Alli! Organize is definitely a great goal to have…I think of myself as neat but not so much as organized…maybe I should note that for next year 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks LaShawn! It was harder to get to this year but I think it is definitely one I can work on. Those are great words and I can\’t wait to see where they go in your year!! 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      Happy New Year MJ!! Thanks. It really does and I always try to pick a word that can cover all parts of my life. I can\’t wait to see what you come up with – I love quotes! 🙂

  • momssmallvictories

    I love your one word for 2015. We all have room to learn, grow and improve. I especially love how you want to grow as a parent. I hope you will stop by and linkup with our #SmallVictoriesSundayLinkup open all week.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thank You! We definitely do. It is a process that should never end. Parenting can be tough but the end results are oh so worth it! Thanks, I\’ll be sure to come by 🙂

  • Ray

    I am in Love with your word and love how your defined it. I did this last year but for the life of me I can't remember what it was. It must not have been a great word.

    I think I will take this week to ponder this, and participate by putting my whole soul into it this time. Thanks for the inspiration. Good luck with your GROWTH!!!!!

      Thanks so much!! My word for last year was LISTEN and I honestly saw a difference in how I listened. I’m sure you had a good word but maybe had a lot going on and it just slipped your mind…

      I actually took a lot longer to get this year’s word but I hope I am still able to focus on it. Thank you so much for coming by and for the encouragement 😀

  • SavorDailyLife

    My one word would definitely be "savor" 🙂 I like your choice of growth! Hopefully we can both let others get to know us better in 2015!

      Love it! So many ways to go with that…yes, I definitely want to step outside of myself a bit more. Thanks so much for coming by 🙂

  • perfecttenn

    I just listen to a Podcast where they were talking about the whole "one word" for the year mindset. I honestly can't narrow it down to just one word, but I do have somewhat of an overall focus for meeting my goals. Its great that you have chosen "growth", because I think that's something that we all try to do everyday. If you're not growing, you're not learning, and if you're not learning you're really not existing. I'm excited to see you grow in many capacity and follow along your journey!

      Do you know I have never listened to a Podcast…maybe I will add that to my list of ‘To Do’ for this year. 🙂 It can be really hard to pick just one word but I find I can do that a lot easier than an entire list of resolutions ..LOL Thanks Tenns! You’re right growing is so important for any journey…thank you so much for being a such an awesome part of mine 🙂 xoxoxo

  • Sarah

    That is a great question. I am not sure if one word would be enough to describe it for me. Perhaps I should adopt the word live. I don't live enough in the moment in my personal life or work. I am always wondering what is next, etc. I would like to try to be more present and enjoy things in life. I think that would make a world of a difference in my happiness levels.

      It can be hard to narrow down a set of goals into one word but sometimes doing it helps to keep the focus needed to get there. I think LIVE is a great word and your reasoning for it means a lot. It can be hard to remember to take each moment as more than passing time and actually make it count to the fullest. I wish you the best in taking 2015 and LIVING it to your best! 🙂
