Word of the Year 2015 // Explore

Thanks to the help of a few lovely tweeters, I've come up with my word for the year.  It is Explore.  I was leaning towards Simplicity, Explore, or Forward for this year but something about the word Explore just spoke to me.  Also in the running, but pretty far back, was Brave.  Honestly, I was terrified of Brave.  I thought I couldn't live up to it...but if my word this year is Explore maybe next year I can be Brave (I'm already feeling it....Brave will be the front runner next year if 2015 goes the way I hope it will go).  First off, if you want to read my post about my word for 2014, go ahead and click here.
I feel like this little project in 2014 really helped me reflect from the beginning to the end of the year, even though I felt like in the middle of the year I felt like I'd lost touch, I really think this helped me.  So for 2015 I plan to Explore more.

I want to take the time to Explore what I really want out of life.  How is what I'm doing now helping me get to where I want to be?  Where is it that I want to be?  I want to Explore different ideas, different places, etc.  I plan on planning and taking small family trips, our first one will hopefully be to Kentucky in May!  I want to Explore different places with Zach.

I want to Explore what I really want out of my blog and YouTube channel.  Where do I want to be?  What do I see in the future?  I've found that it's hard to run this blog as a business and really want to Explore how I can get the most out of it for me.  I'm really bad at interacting with a broad number of people but I do want to step up my blog to the next level - advertisers, sponsors, etc - because I really would like to earn some revenue for my efforts even though I do a lot on this blog because I find it fun.  I'd like to Explore if that is a good option for me or not.

I want to Explore my career options.  I remember in 2013 writing a post called What if this is it & What if I am Happy? and it still speaks to me.  I didn't think I was ready to start out on my own.  I don't think I am able to be my own boss - it's stressful!  But that doesn't mean I'm a failure and it doesn't mean I'm not a hard worker.  While my job isn't my favorite thing to do for 8 hours a day it pays for me to collect the things I love, to save for the things I need, and I can finally feel like I'm contributing to our little family.  I can be responsible and that shit is the best feeling ever.

So 2015 is going to be a year of changes - like every year is - where I try to find out more about myself.  Using the word Focus in 2014 made me hone in on my life where as Explore will help me learn more about what I really want and hopefully I can be Brave in 2016.  That's a lofty goal!

I hope you've enjoyed this little post and I hope that you're 2015 has stared off amazing!

What is your word for 2015?

xoxo, Moe
