Simplify, my word for 2018

I’d like to say I chose the word Simplify for 2018 but honestly the word chose me.
I took a short quiz on Dayspring’s website and that’s the word it gave me. At first I wasn’t so sure about it, then I re-read the questions they asked and the answers I gave and it all made sense.

simplify

I am still working on my plan to simplify for 2018.
I know we are almost done with January already but instead of letting that get me down, and then giving up, I’m going to give myself grace and keep moving forward with my planning.

Some of the words that I want to incorporate into my plan are…

simple words

I hope to create my simple, uncomplicated, plan to simplify my life by the end of this week.
I am excited to get back in the groove of planning and preparing for the new year. The last time I did this was 2016. I didn’t reach all my goals that year but again, grace.

Cheers to the year to Simplify friends. Did you chose a word for this year? Have you set goals for 2018?
