Writing Stories of Love, Faith and Happy Endings While Enjoying the Journey

My One Word

117 Comments

002Time…like taxes and death it’s inevitable and it will pass. We can’t stop it, nor can we slow it down. For me, 2014 passed in an instant. I thought about time a great deal over the holidays. Each of us has twenty-four hours in a day, seven days a week and three hundred and sixty five days in a year. How we manage our time determines what we’re able to accomplish.

During my unplugged period, I discovered the more time I had, the more time I wasted. I’m a creature of routine. I need my routine and I’ll be honest, when it’s disrupted, I’m not the most pleasant person to be around. My problem, I’m unable to stay focused without my routine. As Derek often says, “Slow down, you’re too hyper.”

I gave up making New Year’s resolutions years ago. Instead, I chose one word that will make a positive change in my life. This year, my one word will be focus. I plan to fight off the daily distractions that try to steal my focus. I will be dedicated and committed to make progress in an area that matters to me, my writing.

I hope each of you and your family have a year filled with peace, joy and accomplishing your dreams.

Do you have one word for 2015?

  1. Happy New Year, Jill. Focus is a GREAT word. I think I’ll adopt your resolution 🙂 I find that when I have more time on my hands, I tend to procrastinate. Hence, all the cleaning and puttering around I did yesterday instead of work on my writing 😉

    • Happy New Year, Marie! It’s so nice to see your smiling face. It’s crazy, I had tons of time while I was off from work and I was like you, cleaning, puttering and puzzling too. 🙂 I need my routine! Enjoy the rest of your time off. xo

  2. Best Wishes for 2015, Jill. I hear you on the routine thing. I love the idea of a one word type of resolution. Mine might be – hone. With two novels due to come out in the upcoming year and my expectation that my editor will be telling me that both are gripping and well woven but too long – this word is going to guide me in my writing and may serve me well in other areas as well. Hone down to the essentials. Once that’s in place the window dressing will take care of itself.

    • Happy New Year, Fran! Hone is a terrific word for you as you face the challenges in 2015. I’m excited to hear two of your novels will be in my hands this year…nice! I’ll look forward to following the progress on your blog.

  4. Happy New Year Jill! Focus IS a great word. I don’t make resolutions either, never have. On a blog I follow I discovered my word in the comment section as I commented twice. My word just kept its persistent popping up as I typed.. HERE. My word is HERE. I am going to be concentrating on being here, present, living in this moment. I know those are overused words but they are BIG for me. I used to spend so much time worrying (still working on the worrying and anxiety) in the present and about the future that I was missing all the good stuff. Good Luck to both of us as we live 2015 focused and here. Good Morning Jill!

    • Happy New Year to you too, Pix! I love your word HERE. I contemplated the word PRESENT as my word for this year. Like yourself, I would like to be more present and in the moment. Good luck to you and maybe we can swap words next year. 🙂 Great to see you! xo

  7. Happy New Year, Jill! Yes, I find that the more activities I structure into my day, the more I accomplish. Last year, my mantra was “Forward Momentum” and it kept me focused. I always ask myself, is this helping me work toward my main goals. Like you, I don’t make resolutions, but I do make specific goals. A book I found helpful with getting geared up for this year’s new goals is RESOLUTIONS THAT STICK ( http://www.amazon.com/Resolutions-That-Stick-Habits-Transform-ebook/dp/B00H8K4WEU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1420207619&sr=8-1&keywords=scott+stick+to+resolution). It’s kind of a Choose Your Adventure book where you can focus on any combination of habits to develop or eradicate in your daily life. The most important message in the book is to focus on one habit per month since it takes the average person 21 to 30 days to create or rid of one. And if you choose to eradicate a habit, it needs to be replaced by an acceptable one.

    Hmm. One word for this year: SPEAK. I’m working on developing my pitching skills.

    • Happy New Year, Jolyse! It seems many of us produce more when we have structure. I need scheduled activities, even if it’s being at work at a certain time, to meet my goals for the day. I love your mantra from last year, it obviously worked for you. Thanks so much for the link to Resolutions that Stick. I loaded it onto my Kindle and will read it this weekend. SPEAK is a great word, but with your teaching background, I have a feeling you’ll nail your pitches this year.

  8. Happy New Year, Jill! As others have said, focus is a great word. I believe that you’ll do wonderful things this year, Jill!

    The only word I can think of that has any significance is HOPE. As someone who has gone through depression, hope often seems as impossible as a human sprouting wings and flying. But as people have reminded me lately, with God, all things are possible. I haven’t always believed that, especially when something discouraging happens. I tend to focus on the discouraging aspect more than the hope beyond it. But in 2015, that needs to change.

    Like

    • I hear you, Marie, so much! I am the same way. Depression is something I struggle with daily, even with medication, but I have found that my art and writing and trying to keep myself fit physically all help me so very much.

      I wish you much success in changing your focus from discouragement to hope. 🙂

    • Happy New Year, L. Marie! I appreciate your kind words, your comments are always encouraging. It’s easy to focus on things that might not be going well in our life rather than what’s good. I think HOPE is the perfect word for you as you begin 2015. Keep those positive thoughts flowing and cast aside the negative ones and please never forget, there is always Hope. xo

  9. RISK is my word. In this past year I have had two opportunities to pitch myself for an opportunity to write professionally. I am not good at marketing myself (I blame it on my age and my gender). I can promote others but promoting myself is like boasting (I blame my mother for that!) Simplify might be another word. I am trying to keep things (home, clothes, activities) more simple and satisfying rather than big tadoos that totally freak me out. Thanks for making me think.

    Like

    • Happy New Year, Kate! RISK is a great word! I need to take more of those myself. I understand, it’s difficult to promote ourselves…it feels like your bragging. I’m more of the lay low and promote others type too. Ah…SIMPLIFY…great word. I need to get rid of the STUFF this year. I’ve made a pretty good start during my time off. Keep thinking and I’ll do the same, then we can reconvene. 🙂

  10. Happy New Year. I do understand about the loss of routine. When I quit working I was nearly manic. No, I WAS manic. I didn’t know what to do with myself until I started writing. Focus is good word. It helps channel what time we have into something productive. I need to do more of that, also. Cheers to a focused 2015!

    • So true, so true! I quit working many years ago to raise my family and I felt very manic indeed until I began writing my first novel which fortunately I printed out, because it is saved on a floppy disk. It’s not good, though, but someday I may work on it again. At the time it was cathartic for me to write, and now I am focusing a lot more on my writing than my art.

      I feel out of my routine when the kids are on their long Christmas break, but by now I need it. So I definitely know what you mean, Jill!

        As for Nicholas Sparks, I would venture to guess he has a drawer of novels that were never published when he first started writing.

  11. I’m pretty sure ‘They’ have sped time up! There’s a huge time conspiracy going on somewhere! It reminds me of ‘Momo’ did you ever read that book as a child? The Grey Gentlemen stealing all the adults time and only the children knowing how to enjoy each moment.

    I have two words for this year, ‘Create’ and ‘Breathe’. [Breathe means stop trying to control!] But I am more interested in what the retrospective word becomes – what was the focus of the year in hindsight? I think that is where the real journey happens and if you are anything like me you have no idea while you are living it 🙂

  13. Great word, Jill. I’ve tried to focus but tend to be very scattered as my life has been scattered. So this year, being one of culmination, is more about organization. I will spend the year clearing out clutter. My son will be living with for an undetermined amount of time quite soon and my sister’s furniture is still occupying some of my space so now that I’m in a place I plan to stay in, organization is an absolute necessity. Everyone I know has been in transition in the last year. I’m just ending a five year cycle so now I can organize so focus will be much easier. I spend way too much time looking for things that have not found a permanent home. Maybe by next year I’ll see where my focus really is. I get the routine aspect. I’m a Virgo and routine and order are essential to my well being. Wishing you well with focus. Keep us posted.

We both have the personalities that try to do too much at once. We need to take things (projects) one at a time. I think DISCIPLINE is a great word for you and it might be my backup word since I need discipline to stay focused. 🙂 Talk to you soon! xoxo

You are so right, we both try to take on too much and then it definitely gets overwhelming. What you are focusing on is exactly what I’ve been thinking about all over Christmas…yes, our ultimate goals are important but we need to really concentrate on those small steps we need to take, each and every day, to reach them. I am always talking to my daughter about this: what do you need to do, and can cope with doing, to get from A to B? Her problem of course is a huge lack of motivation which is all part of her having Asperger’s. Anyway, I could go on..and on so I’ll shut up for now! But you know what I mean! So my friend, you focus and I’ll give myself a healthy dose of discipline and between the both of us here’s to reaching those goals this year 🙂 xoxoxo

Where would I be without you to comment (purely selfish, I know 😦 ) I know it’s two words but I think that mine should maybe be ‘time management’. Some people do seem to achieve so much more than others. But I think I’m probably just a tortoise 🙂 I did so enjoy ‘Esio Trot’ on TV last night (with Dustin Hoffman and Judi Dench).

  17. Jill, I know EXACTLY how you feel when your routine is disrupted. Routines make it easy for us to get things done. I know when it seems like I can’t get anything done, I feel miserable. I’ve obviously had to adjust that since Angus has come around and learn that a routine is not going to be in the cards for a little while. So I’m trying to be a better task manager and make the best use of the free moments of time that pop up sporadically.

    I wish you the best of luck in 2015 on making the progress you desire!!

    Take care and wishing you a Happy New Year, with more focus and yet, also ability to relax and unplug, too. We all see how time takes us too quickly into the future, maybe try to enjoy the present more.
    I still think to ‘resolve’ and choose to focus are similar, even if there are no resolutions made! Smiles, Robin

Happy Happy New Year Jill ❤ I am slowly surfacing from a long(ish) break 🙂 Focus is a great word and I know what you mean about needing routine and staying busy…my word for 2015 is 'wonder' and I'm thinking of writing something about that on my blog this week (when I finally get round to doing it)

  45. Can I cheat and say, “Keep going” for my word? I like to keep going, even when the going gets touch. Cliche I know, but it works for me. I do yours. Focusing is key. I need to work on that as well. Happy New Year!

  46. Focus is a great word! I think that for me it will be health. 2014 was a bit spotty that way!
