8 Things I Learned This Week: 15 February 2015

8 Things I Learned This Week: 15 February 2015

I'm writing this post in the great outdoors.  Our local council cleverly installed a water play park (fountains, kids water cannons, giant flowers spouting water, that kind of thing) next to a playground with both surrounded by plenty of grass. My boys are happily amused to-ing and fro-ing between the two while I enjoy sunshine, fresh air, the green surrounds and children laughing. Glorious.

The appreciation of a bit of green space is just one of the things that struck me recently so without further ado here are the eight things I learned this week:

Positive Life: One guiding word for 2015

one word new years resolutions

If New Year's Resolutions are not your thing (bear with me, it's only January 5...) try this...

I read about the 'One Word' approach to your yearly goals and plans on Maxabella Loves, one of our fabulous Aussie blogs, and it instantly appealed. Rather than an inscribed-in-stone list of things to do or not do, the guiding 'one word' gives you enough focus to muddle through with your goals and plans all year, with the flexibility to change things up, go as fast or as slow as you like, to switch paths and to invent new activities - all with a common theme and all with the aim of getting you where you want to go.

My word for 2015 is GROW.  In 2015 I will:

  • Grow my networks
  • Grow my blog
  • Grow my business
  • Grow my savings
  • Grow my garden
  • Grow my kids (although they grow like weeds without much help)
  • Grow my confidence, and
  • Grow my satisfaction - with life and all it entails.

What's your word for 2015?
