I did it! It may have taken awhile, but I did it!

Do you choose a word of the year? Last year was the first time I did. It took me a little longer to choose one for this year, but I finally did.

I have finally chosen my word for the year. It took awhile, but after a lot of thought and soul searching, I finally decided on my word of the  year. Action!

The Google dictionary defines action as the fact or process of doing something, typically to achieve an aim. That is my word of the year: ACTION!

Last year I chose the word determination to be my word of the year. I was determined to learn more about the blogging process, start posting more on the blog and I was determined to get myself in gear to get things done, in various aspects of my life.


I had previously wrote about the things I wanted to accomplish. This was my very first post and was inspired by Simply Nicole’s post, 101 things to do in 1001 Days. I sat down and wrote out my 101 things that I wanted to accomplish in 1001 days. Throughout that time I was able to do several of the things on my as you can see by the updates. Although I did do several things and was able to mark them off the list, most of those items were completed because they just fell into place, not because I actually set my sites on getting them done. To see the post with my list click here. 

My determination year did help me learn a lot of the nuts and bolts of blogging. I still have a lot more to learn yet. It will be an  ongoing and never-ending process.  Therefore, I have chosen action as my word of the year. I am planning on putting all those things I have learned and put them into action.

This year I have been hard at work developing a working schedule for my blog and myself. I am hoping to post on Mondays and have recently began Wordless Wednesdays. This will be a day where I post various pictures of random things that have went on in my life during the past week. I hope you, my readers, will also share pictures of your lives during the last week.

I have finished the Affiliate Marketing Course and have chosen a handful more to take to help me with my writing and out put on the blog. Also, I have a list of books to read for the purposes of blogging, finance, self help, and pleasure. I have always been a reader, but due to the business of my life, I have shoved this on a back burner. No longer, I am putting this as a priority on my action list.


I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, but as with reading, I have managed to cook meals for my family, but seldom try new recipes. Just today, I bought the items for 3 new dishes. I actually bought a cooking wine which I have never cooked with before. I’m really excited to try this recipe.

I have the rose one that matches my pink crafting room.

For Christmas my husband bought me a Cricut Explore Air 2. I have several projects in mind as soon as I figure out how to really use it. I have watched one you-tube video so far and am planning on watching more to help me learn and up my productivity.  More action to accomplish.

This is a shorten overview of the things I am planning on working on during this next year.  The things I am planning on putting into action. My expiring 101 Things to Do in 1001 Days can be seen by clicking here. I will be posting my new list next week. There will probably be some things that are the same, but there will be several new ideas I want to put into Action.

What is your word of the year?

My life verse.
