Life, love, photography, growth, enjoy. So many words come to mind when I think about the year ahead but this one word keeps coming back to me so I’m going to make my word for 2018 FORWARD.
That might seem like a bit of an odd word but it’s what I need to do, it’s what I need to stay focused on: moving FORWARD. In everything I do, in everything I hope to accomplish, I need to keep moving forward. Even if I fail and I will fail and I will make mistakes but I need to just pick myself up and move forward.
I can’t let myself sit and wallow in my failure or mistake for long because then I’m not moving at all. Life has a way of throwing things at you when you just can’t seem to pick yourself up ok maybe just my life but in any case . . . forward motion is what will get me to where I want to be.
There’s More to Life Than Just Living
Enjoying this life I’ve been given and the family I’m blessed with is what my heart and soul need and crave. I want to do more than just exist; I want to live. So many times we just trudge through the days and sure we’re alive but we aren’t living. You know what I mean? We’re just existing. We’re struggling to get through the day or week in the daily grind or rat race or whatever you choose to call it.
I’ve written out my goals for 2018. I’ve placed them in a prominent place in my office so I can see it daily. Yes, I need the daily reminder to stay focused on moving forward. There are so many areas of my life that I need to stay focused on moving forward: my health, personal/family, business and financial goals.
When I fail, I’ll have my reminder to get up, dust myself off and get moving forward again. It’s not going to be easy. Getting up after a failure is never easy but it is doable and I’m going to do it.
Have you done this? What’s your word for 2018? What are your goals, not dreams, not hopes but goals, real, reachable goals?
What is in store for your 2018? I can’t wait to see.
