    I love the idea of going with a word instead of setting an unrealistic number of goals and resolutions! I haven't quite picked mine out yet, but I think it's an awesome way to reach your goals. My number one goal is to just be a better me; being more healthy, being more conscious of how I treat others, and being the best friend/wife/sister/daughter/teacher/etc. that I possibly can be.xoxo, SSSouthern And Style

    We share a lot of the same goals. First of all, congratulations on deciding to RCIA. I've been a Catholic my whole life, and one of my goals for this year is to reconnect with my religion and with God. When I went to college, I seemed to put religion on the back burner. I'm excited to get back to it! Wishing you all the best in the New Year!

    What a great word of the year. I like both goals and a word, to be honest. I'm also a fan of checking in with yourself every two weeks or so to make sure you're on track and still want to be working towards a specific goal. It's okay to change our minds!

    It's so important to be mindful of all these things when moving forward into a new year — even little changes make a huge difference sometimes.

    This is my word! I love this, I want to be more intentional! I want to intentionally spend my time on things that I love, and honestly be in the moment more. Since we have so many things going on, I want to soak it all in as much as possible! Love your resolutions!xxAshley

    That's such a good word. I heard someone else say theirs was purposeful which is similar. Mine is self-worth.

    These are fantastic resolutions, I'm sure you'll be successful in making them work for you. I to am hoping to save more and cut back on unnecessary spending, travel more for fun, and give my blog an upgrade. Best wishes for a fab 2017!

    Ahhh! Going to work and not being scheduled for the day is my worst nightmare, lol. Except that they would probably ask me to stay – they always need nurses. 😉 And I am SUPER excited about your journey with Catholicism! I've known it my whole life and I teach faith formation, but it's always interesting to find out about someone converting as an adult. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me – I don't know everything, of course, but I love talking about it! 😉
