Yesterday's post is a prime example of why I need the word 'Value' in my life. I wanted that to be my word for 2013 and yet a few jokes made me change my mind. I value my own opinion on this and I am not giving value to the mocking because I don't need to. As Becky said in the comments yesterday, this is my word. I get to choose. I should value my own decision.
So, there it is. Value is my word of the year. I know to some people that choosing a word for the year will sound like the biggest load of nonsense but last year was the first time I tried it and 'Create' stayed with me all of 2012. It helped me focus and I honestly think it enriched my life last year.
Value > Noun 1. the regard that something is held to deserve; the importance, the worth, or usefulness of something 2. (values) principles or standards of behaviour; one's judgement of what is important in life
One of the biggest things I want to focus on is my ridiculous procrastination habit. Seriously, I waste so much time on I don't even know what. I could be a hell of a lot more productive if I stopped messing about.
Another thing is shopping. From our food shop to clothes and things for the house I want to really concentrate on quality over quantity this year. Our mindless shopping really adds up- the £20 spent when you only popped in for bread and milk and I want to get that under control.
I want to earn more money. Just putting that out there, let's be honest that's a whole other list though.
