2015 · A Year to Execute

I have to admit that it took me a little longer to settle on a focus word this year. Last years word (renew) came so easily, but it was much harder this time around for some reason. Probably because the possibilities seem endless. I took time to think about it and thought about it some more, until finally it hit me like a ton of bricks the other night.

EXECUTE
to carry out or put into effect (a plan, order or course of action)

And, really, that's exactly what this years focus is for me. To finally break away from everything that's been holding me back (be it fear, lack of motivation or laziness) and carry out the plans that I've made. Up until this point in time, I've only talked about the things I want to do, using 'someday' as a crutch of sorts. I should have never allowed that word to take up residence in my vocabulary. Casually talking about my dreams won't make them come to pass, so it's time to take action and see all of these things through until completion. It's not going to work until I do.

So, in order for me to get the rest that I so desperately need, I've taken a 10 week leave of absence from Target while I refocus (and try to regain a bit of my sanity). My last shift is tomorrow evening and then I'll return once April rolls around. Though, honestly, I've seriously contemplated not going back at all (still praying about what I should do in the long run). All I know is that working 3 different part-time jobs just isn't leaving me any extra time for myself and I really want to get back to my creative endeavors since they bring me joy and fulfillment. I'm excited to get back to design work and such.
