2015 ACTIONS words

I realize that I am a bit slow with my first post of 2015...
and wishing you all a happy and healthy time in the year that lies ahead.

But, I have been dragging out that holiday mood for as long as possible.

Today, I plan to remove all the last signs of Christmas.
The tree did come down on the 29th as planned
but the decorative touches
that were keeping the holiday glow alive
stayed put.

And now, here we are,
almost 6 days into 2015 as I write this...
and I have not made one single resolution.
I have no chosen word or phrase for inspiration this year.

I have not even attempted to start a plan for organizing my home.

There is laundry to be done now that the guests have all departed.
Oh and the fridge,
full of

Nope, so far 2015 started rolling forward
with very little interference or direction on my part.

Maybe this is the year where I let loose and let things happen on their own accord?
Perhaps 2015 
will be about spontaneity... caution to the wind....and all that?

And then maybe I just need to think less about the words and more about the action....

Yes, I think that is it for me.
Simplistic right now,
but a place to start.

How about you?


  1. Donna I can SO relate to the feelings you express in this post. If it wasn't an atypical year for me, this is generally how I enter the new year. I like your ease and willingness to simply allow things to unfold before you....I don't think we need to impose any words or resolutions on ourselves unless we're inspired to .and you still might. It sounds like you've got some ideas still percolating inside you.
    Thank you for reading my post leave the best comments!

  2. I'm just trying to get my house back in order, too. My daughter left for campus yesterday *sadface*

  3. No words or resolutions here for me either Donna. I don't usually do them anyway and let the year flow as God intends it to be. I do hope to get rid of some 'stuff' in this house though. Things like china dishes and ornaments that don't mean anything to me are going out the door. That will be a challenge for me. Wishing you all the best this new year has to offer. Hugs. Pam

  4. Donna,
    I had a conversation with a colleague today and discovered everything in his life was organized... I'm sure he has plans for the new year, a word of the year and resolutions neatly written in a noteblook... Suddenly, it was like I couldn't breathe... His life sounded so boring and un-surprising, like a trap... I deciced that I loved my messiness and unorganisation... Maybe I'll get a word of the year when I'm ready and if I don't, maybe I'll just enjoy life!

  5. I would have left our tree up a bit longer, was quite healthy and pretty. We are having a part here n Saturday and since my house is so small, we needed the space. Sad.

    I love that you're planning to be more spontaneous this year. I think that's a wonderfully different way to look the future. We get bogged down with goals and plans that we want gratification from. The problem is expecting to achieve those goals instantaneously, we tend to give up quickly. Now you, my friend...just go for it. Every day will be a happy adventure! :)

  6. Given that my "best laid plans" rarely work out, I doubt you are less apt to reach your 2015 potential, without a word or resolutions, than I am. Anyway, we are both apt to change our minds about where we are going more than once in the new year. Maybe, it would be better to break the year down into quarters and see what we think we will do in that time frame. I could go for that!

  7. I have no words for 2015, no plans, I'm just going to take one day at a time and see where it leads.
    At the moment my head is still full of decorating.
