There is this whole "one little word" thing now that is supposed to simplify making resolutions, goals or your focus for the New Year.
Last year I wrote:
"One word, sheesh, as a writer that is both excruciatingly challenging & utter nonsense...I mean I could pick one of many words, that would carry me into 2015:
But here's the thing, while I could own and really try to live by any of these #onelittlewords that could be applied to my life right now - None of them sit well with me for some reason...What resonates with me and what I keep coming back to, is oddly "Throw caution to the wind". No clue why, but that's where my confetti little mind goes.
For some reason on New Year's Eve I posted this pic of Pip with the words, "Today I'm thankful for the anticipation of all that is possible in 2015...Hope y'all have a year full of moments that knock your glasses off, make you laugh so hard you don't care about your double chin & is full of chances to throw caution to the wind"...And I guess without knowing, when wishing it upon all of you, in turn I was wishing that for myself."
And when I look back on 2015, I truly believe I did just that.
- Hello, Jamaica & oops hello Baby #3
- Hello, facing my fears & giving a Ted Talk
- Hello, finding faith in unusual places
- Hello, things that were meant to change me
- Hello, anticipation
- Hello, baby
- Hello, new challenge
- And Hello, love
2015 was utterly amazing - I was stretched, moved, challenged & loved. All things that help to make me the person I strive to become one day.

So, here's to surviving all the beautiful-chaotic-caution I'm gonna throw to the wind in 2016...
