my mantra for 2015…

Bring a little crazy into every day

Bring a little crazy into every day

Every year, we start fresh with what we hope becomes a newer, better version of ourselves. We write resolutions, sign up for gym memberships, eat healthier, and do the things we hope will stick for the rest of the year. Sometimes those things stick, and sometimes they don't. But no matter what the new year brings promise of a better year and being better to ourselves and to others. In the past (like in 2013), I've tried to give myself a pat on the back for things I did a good job at that year while also noting what needs to be worked on for the new year. This year, I've decided to give myself a personal mantra to just enjoy life a little bit more and not take it all so seriously. Here's the line that I will recite to myself when I am being my worst self—my stressed out, anxious, impatient, cranky, and tired self. And hoping that my best self—my happy, optimistic, sing-songs-badly-to-the-top-of-my-lungs self comes out a little more often this year…

Is there something that you're writing on your forehead this year?

  1. This is lovely – unique and obviously very personal. I haven’t come up with a 2015 mantra/resolution yet but this one resonates with me a lot! I might steal (er, borrow?) it, Joy! 🙂

  2. I love this graphic, words, and the sentiment so much! You’ll have fun with this one. My one goal/word/mantra for this year is surrender. Let go of worries and need for perfection.

  3. That’s a great mantra! More playfulness and more fun are two things that we can all do with!
    I haven’t selected a mantra for myself for this year, mostly because I feel like my needs and my inner talk can change so much from January to December. So I guess I have a mantra after all: “live in the moment” 🙂
