One Word 2015

I’m tired of heavy, nose to the grindstone one words. The last three years all of my words, while they were exactly what I needed at the time, honestly they were exhausting.


Steward in 2011 took great deal of focus and leadership.

Determined in 2012 gave me strength and vision and took me to places personally and physically I thought I would never reach.

Reborn in 2014 grew me spiritually and helped me realize who I truly am meant to be.

This year, I wanted a word that was a little loftier. A word that resonated with my soul. A word that held responsibility and accountability, but also allowed for fun and playfulness.

So here it is. She sits in all her beauty and creative energy.

My one word for 2015 will be…

Inspire 2015

Inspire. verb.

1. to fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative. 2. breathe in (air); inhale.

Inspire for me means action. It means taking in the breath that grants all good creative gifts and exhaling it out on a page, into people, and to places that I never imagined.

I woke up this morning and wrote words, cut paper, and dreamed BIG dreams for 2015.

This year, I’ve set the most specific, aggressive, and whimsical goals that I have ever dared to write down. Probably because I’m turning 40 in 2015. I think it does something crazy to people. I hope to share some of these here with you friends. But I also know some are just for me.

I hope this is Inspiring for some of you (like how I worked that in?). Whatever 2015 brings may you do, be, or feel something creative. May we all breathe in good air that gives life to something wonderful.
