One Word Wednesday: RELAX #OneWord365

I try to make resolutions every year. And maybe that’s why the month January always overwhelms me. Because I’m trying to CHANGE ALL THE THINGS and “become a new me!” every time the ball drops on NYE.

Two years ago, I made a list of goals. And did about half of them. Last year, I summed up my resolutions in a sentence, which was only slightly more effective. This year, though, I’m making it super simple. With just ONE WORD.


Choose just one word.

One word that sums up who you want to be or how you want to live. One word that you can focus on every day, all year long.

It will take intentionality and commitment, but if you let it, your one word will shape not only your year, but also you. It will become the compass that directs your decisions and guides your steps.

Discover the big impact one word can make.

One word. 365 days. A changed life.

So, my word for 2014 is:

I take things too seriously. I take LIFE too seriously. I worry and stress about the small things. Things that I CAN NOT CHANGE.

It’s time to stop doing that. It’s not good for my health, my family, or my marriage. R. E. L. A. X.

What’s your #OneWord365 for 2014?


  1. (Hi! Stopping by from Blogelina’s Mommy Blogging group)
    I have the SAME WORD this year! lol. I have two though: relax and balance. It’s definitely still a work in progress though!

  2. I am very high strung and a worry wart, so I think relax would be a great word for me too! Good luck and wishing you a relaxing new year!!

  2. […] sure a lot of you are making resolutions and such. Last year was the first time I did One Word 365 rather than the typical new year’s resolution. I’m not sure I would describe 2014 as […]
