Hope everyone’s weekend was great and that you were able to stay safe and warm. We had a snow event that was uneventful, maybe two inches but of course, it shut everything down…LOL Doesn’t bother me a bit. One thing that is consistent in The A is that ice/snow brings a mad dash for milk and bread. This happens every time we have any hint of snowflakes. It made me think about that word. We do the same thing every year at this time with the same results – we are all safe and sound at home. Being consistent is a good thing, so it’s my word for 2016.
This word is the building block for being successful at almost anything – when you read, write, run, exercise, paint, blog, pray, etc. on a regular basis, you will become good at it. Now notice I didn’t say perfect at it, but good. Perfection is not the goal! The goal is to commit and to do some things day in and day out to realize success. I am committing to consistent healthy eating – check on Weight Watchers, saying yes to things that scare me – check said yes to a Thursday night date just last week, and performing tidy tasks every night – check tidying the house from 7:00 – 8:00.
Need a picture of what being consistent looks like? Now she doesn’t win all the the time, but she wins on a consistent basis and that is so fabulous and we are on a path to being fabulously consistent!
You can read about my word for 2015. It really made a difference in how I approached opportunities in 2015.
Do you have a word or a phrase for 2016?

I haven’t really thought about one word, but if I had to chose it would be “health” – not only concentrating on mine but hubby’s as well.

My word for 2016 is Better. Better connection to God. Better relationships. Better health. Better business decisions and results.
I’m excited to see how “consistant” helps you to progress this year!

Oh I love it! Best wishes to being better on all things!
Oh, that’s a good word for the year! You made me laugh about the bread and milk thing – I chose not to follow those traditions, as I don’t partake in either. I also enjoyed the downtime, whether it was called for, or not. However, I must say where I live it, it was called for. Have a great week, Robin!

I love this word. It’s something I’m striving for too. I don’t have a word for the year but I’ll choose limitless because I want a life with no limits this year!
Oh wow Stacie, you are so right! There are no limits!
Love your word for the year! I want to be more consistent as well!
