My one word for 2013 was LEARN. Last 2014, I didn’t get to choose my one word, because I felt that 2014 was still a year where I had to focus on learning. This 2015, I knew that I wanted to choose a new word and it was easy for me to pick this one. My word for this year will be FEEL.

My One Word for 2015 --- FEEL!

My One Word for 2015 — FEEL!

If you really know me, I’m not a very sentimental person. My husband reminds me of this countless of times. I wouldn’t contest that. Don’t think of me as a heartless biatch.Nor am I someone like Frank Underwood from House of Cards (but he does amaze me and I am a fan of the show). I am definitely not, but since I’m results driven, decisive and competitive, I tend to breeze through things just to get to the ‘results’ part. I hate waste and I have the tendency to think that relaxing and taking things slow is just a waste of my precious time.

That was the Ginger you met in 2014. The Ginger that I will be in 2015 will take the time out to ‘feel’ — to feel the sunlight’s warm passing through our glass window every morning instead of rushing to check emails on my mobile phone. This Ginger will feel her daughter’s heartbeat as she rests on my chest. This Ginger will feel my husband’s love as he kisses me and hugs me tight. This Ginger will feel the warmth of my own breathe as I go through yoga practice or go for a run.

I will feel happy every time I sip my cup of coffee and I will taste every bit of flavor in each sip. I will feel excited for new opportunuties that will come my way; I will also feel scared at the same time, and it will be alright. I will feel frustrated and disheartened at times and I know that it’s okay to feel this way since it’s a part of growing and ‘changing’. I will feel contented and at ease with how things are going, but I will not rest until my dreams are achieved. I will feel relaxed (and maybe a bit bored at times), but I know that this is needed for me to recharge and to remain sane. I will feel how it is to be loved and to give love unconditionally. I will feel highly ecstatic, hopeless and lost, clingy and sweet, furious, stupid and insecure, amazing and beautiful and I will love feeling all of these things and I will cherish each and every moment.

How about you? What is your one word for 2015?

It took a while before I could finally decide on what my one word was going to be this year. Finally, I have decided on a word that will encapsulate everything that I am planning to do and achieve this year. I chose the word…

Learn

My one word 2013 is LEARN

Why LEARN?
After a conversation with a friend last night, I realized that one of the things that I want to focus on this year is learning, creating avenues for learning and sharing my learnings with others (over probably a cup of coffee… thus the coffee stain in the poster). I realized that a lot of my goals and plans for this year and even my life list have a lot to do with learning.

LEARNING in the Family…
I’m about to be a mom and I know that I can’t be a perfect parent or wife, but this year, I will try my darn best to learn and strive to be a good parent and a loving wife. I’ll strive to learn as much as I can by attending workshops, reading books and even trying out things that I have never done before (make an effort to learn cooking…). I will also try to learn more about breastfeeding through others and through personal experience. I will be patient and really try to breastfeed until Zeeka is 2 years old.

LEARNING with Friends…
I will actively pursue creating workshops for ManilaWorkshops.com (even those that I will offer for free: I was thinking of a free Photoshop workshop) so as to help friends and acquaintances learn with me. I want to bring inspire other people to continue learning.

LEARNING more about my Faith…
I will learn to be more spiritual. I have started reading passages from the Bible again and I have started praying every evening, too, with my husband. I promise to learn more about the origins of the Catholic religion, which my hubby, is so fascinated by.

LEARNING from mistakes…
I will go for things that I have not done before. I want to seek new challenges and learn from these. If I fail, I want to learn and share what I have gone through with others.

By the end of 2013, I know that if I stick true to living my word, which is to LEARN, I know that I will have had a fruitful, productive and well-lived year.

What’s your one word for this year? BTW, i’m linking this to One Word 365 Community.

Love,
