Is it February yet? Heart shapes ♥ ♥ ♥ have been popping all over the net now. How time flies. But just not yet. Still a few more days before we get to the month of hearts, love, or Febru♥ry that is.
And before the first month of the year ends, I would like to do my post on my ONE WORD FOR 2013. And I am linking this to One Word 365 Community.
My post on this might be a little late, but my One Word is not. Last year, I already had in mind my One Word. And in fact, I already started applying it during the Christmas Season. And I would like to continue with it for this year. And that One Word is, Simplify.
According to the Dictionary, Simplify means to make less complicated or complex; make plainer or easier.
And exactly what I want to achieve. To make things simpler, less complicated. Applying that in everything that I do. In how I think. In how I live. And I believe that with this goal, everything follows. LESS stress. Less expenses. Less complications. Less frictions. Less negative vibes. And MORE time. More freedom. More relaxation. More Love. More space. More positivity. More smiles. And so on. Because indeed, LESS IS MORE (to read my previous post on this, please click here).
To simplify also means to slow down and breathe.
Christmas Season of last year, I made a conscious effort on being minimal and simple in our celebration. I said “NO” to a lot of things. No to unnecessary spending. No to last minute shopping. No to “some” Christmas parties/Get-togethers. No to expensive gifts. No to fancy celebrations. No to everyday checking of Facebook :). But YES to Savings. Yes to more family time. Yes to handmade gifts. Yes to simple but meaningful celebrations. Yes to priorities. And I can honestly say that last Christmas was one of the best Christmases I’ve ever had.
Moving forward, I hope and pray that my ONE WORD will carry on until the end of this year, and the years to come.
To simplify also means to slow down and breathe. And by doing so, we will be able to renew, to recollect, and to focus on what really matters most.
Because to have a truly happy life is simply, to SIMPLIFY.
