I just wanted to share a final update of my One Little Word for 2018. My word for the year was Less.
I’m very aware that the word Less is in itself a negative word but a huge part of my goal for 2018 was to have less negative thoughts. There’s really no point in pretending there has been a huge change in that area for me. I’m naturally a worrier which means my natural reaction is to think worst case scenario. It was naive of me to think that I could just change that mentality without any work. That will definitely need to be added to 2019 with some more in-depth plans.
I also planned to spend less money in 2018 which was a huge part of my plan in order to save to buy a house. We had a bid accepted on a house early December so that was definitely a successful part of my OLW for this year.
Something else that worked well for me was that I got rid of a lot of physical things. I definitely wanted to have less possessions by the end of 2018. I incorporated my 100 Day Project into my OLW and it resulted in me getting rid of A LOT, which was great.
I’m really happy with what I’ve gotten out of my word this year. There’s plenty of other things I wanted to do with my word for 2018 & I’m sure some of it, I’ll be able to carry with me into 2019. I’ll share my word for 2019, along with what I plan to do with it early in the new year.
