Happy New Year!

Happy New Year

Hello, January! Wow, it’s here! Happy New Year, friends. I’m so glad that you’re here today as we enter 2016. And YAY for a Happy New Year!

January can bring with it blustering cold days and the absence of sunshine, which for me are the perfect storm to cause hibernate. Yet at the same time it’s a new year and I don’t want to miss out on an opportunity for a restart in many areas of life. Restarts get me pumped! Are you ready for a restart?

I for one am looking forward to a new focus, new goals, etc. It’s time to restart, recharge and refocus. I’m planning to¬† post often {read daily} during the month the January with lots of ideas to encourage you and spur you on as 2016 opens. I hope this month will be a fun and informative journey!

For me, it all started with words. I’ve been thinking about a word/phrase/focus for 2016. Have you ever done that or thought about it? Times of reflection have continued to bring words to the surface for me. Originally, I wanted to choose one word but three just kept coming up so I just settled on three words that embodied my focus. Here’s the reveal:

  1. SIMPLIFY {or simplicity} I’m striving to simplify my life in a variety of areas.
  2. SATISFIED {or contentment} I’m striving to be satisfied/content with what I already own.
  3. STEWARDSHIP {or steward or curator} I’m striving to use what I own and my money wisely.

Do you have any words or goals set for 2016? Are there areas of life you want to focus on? Well, follow along because you might find yourself in the boat with me. It’s much easier to paddle with a helper. Join me on the journey, friends. It’s always better with friends.

Well, sweet friends, I am ever so grateful for you! Thank you, dear readers for tuning in and reading A Lovely Little Wardrobe posts. I am humbled and honored that you are here. I hope we can share an incredible year together. I appreciate your comments and input and look forward to all this year has in store for each of us. I hope the year will be full of blessings for you…now Let’s Do This!

    Hi Carrie! Happy New Year to you and your family. Best wishes for 2016. I am contemplating blog goals , but as far as personal, I would like to try and ",live in the moment", not dwell on negatives. I like your 3 word idea for reflection. Cheers! Xxjess www.elegantlydressedandstylish.com
    • Happy New Year to you too, Jess! Hope your year is filled with blessings. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us with your gorgeous style. Have a great day!
  • I'm working on some words for 2016 as I read this... I'm thinking gratitude and happiness!! wishing you an amazing new year, can't wait to see what's in store for you Confessions of a Frumpy Mommy
    • Can't wait to see what you decide on. I really was focused on simplify but I just couldn't get away from the other two. I guess I'm just odd because most people choose one word. Who knows I might have messed up my entire year by choosing three. LOL Thanks for stopping by!
    • Gratitude is a great work because thankfulness produces joy!

  • I love the words you chose, Carrie! I've decided to set goals instead of "resolutions" this year, and I have chosen a few words too. Kindness, Strength, Courage. Looking forward to reading your blog this month!
    • I think those words embody you, Lana! I think goals are so much better than resolutions. With goals I'm setting action steps for days/weeks/months.
    • Another three great guiding words!
