Mindful: My Word for 2015


It’s been two years or so since I last chose a word for the year. I didn’t opt for one last year because at the time I knew that it was really going to be ‘baby’ and didn’t want the hassle of trying to focus on something else. However, this year I need a word to get myself out of the baby fog. I’m chosing mindful for a lot of reasons that I’m not going to elaborate on here. I’m not doing this word up big here on the blog but there will be some background work going on that I want to keep track of for myself. The word really jumped out at me as I’ve been reading about empathetic and peaceful parenting, though the word isn’t necessarily for parenting. It just sounded like a good word to implement for the year, to ponder on as the seasons change.

Are you chosing a word?

    I hadn’t considered having a word, although I think that would be helpful for me. (Somehow this year, I ended up with a whole page of things I want to keep in mind for 2015, which is not very practical.)

    Mindful is a great word. If I had a word, it would be something along those lines. Mindful. Focus. Patience. I feel like I’ve spent the last 10 years looking at everything, and now it’s time to narrow down the focus again, and keep my focus on what I care about.
