One Little Word 2015: Create

In 2014 I choose Write as my One Little Word and I participate in Ali Edward's year long workshop. It was such an amazing experience for me at least on the first eight months. As the year progress I really try to do the assignments and continue writing but some how life gets in the way. Twenty fourteen was definitely a tough year for me, and putting all those feelings and thoughts on paper really help me deal.

I have not given any thoughts about what my word in going to be for this year, given that I had such a super busy end of the year things that really occupied my emotions and my time. A week ago, I read Ali's Blog about her workshop and her One Little Word for 2015 (which is Give), that I realise that I have not given any thoughts about 2015 One Little Word. I still have no idea what I want to achieve this year. Then I read all the comments from Ali's readers what word they choose for 2015. Then one word hit a chord and stuck in my head for a few days. The word is create.

I really need an action word. A word I can do something about. Bring something into existence seems appealing to me. I am so sick and tired of just waiting for things to happened. I need to make things happened.

So this year [2015] One Little Word is create. My goal is create a life that suits my personality and more meaningful.

So this year I want to

Create a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain
I have been struggling with maintaining a healthy lifestyle and workout schedule that fit me and my work schedule. So keeping a consistence schedule has been a challenge. Staying fit in 2015 is one of the goal I want to achieve this year so creating a healthy lifestyle that I can maintain is really important to me.

Create an organisation system that works for me
I am not an organised person but keeping things organised is very important to me and really helps me work/function better as a mother, a worker and a professional. With all the tools out there I intend to create an organisation system that works for me.

Create a Project Life Workflow that fits my style
I fall in love with project life last year. I think Project Life is a simplify version of Scrapbooking. I have a beautiful system set up for Digital Project Life in 2014, but my hardcopy version of Project Life was not a success. So this year I want to create a simple workflow that I can work with and tackle one or two back date projects a year to convert into project life system.

Create blog content that are meaningful
I  realised that my blog content is mostly the same theme every week. So I am going to make it my mission to be more creative and to create more sharable blog content this year. I still have no idea what my year will look like but I know that I want to create more sharable and meaningful content.

Create a comfy and beautiful home that the whole family can enjoy
Making my home looks like Martha's Stewart home is an impossible goal. So I am not going to do that. I just have to remember that less is more. Getting rid of the clutter is the first step for me to take to create a more comfy and beautiful home. I am going to tackle my home not one room at a time but one area at a time. It's more manageable for me.

On top of my head I think the tools I might need for this year

  • ipad - [Day One App, GoodNotes 4, Calendar 5 and Evernote]
  • washi tapes (lots of them)
  • running shoes and socks
  • pinterest board inspiration
  • journal ( I am going to continue keeping a hardcopy journal)
  • an upbeat music to keep me motivated
  • dropbox (ooo that's reminds me to archive 2014 files and create 2015 folders
  • A Notebook / Project Life mini album to document my journey
  • colorful pens / sharpies
  • day planner for 2015 [digital and hard copy]
  • iphone camera or sony digital camera
  • printer
I am so ready to CREATE

"YOUR DREAM JOB DOES NOT EXIST. YOU HAVE TO CREATE IT"
