Several of my friends have told me that I need to do the #oneword2016 challenge, where you pick a single word for the new year…one word that makes you focus on your main goal for the year. Something like “passion” or “family” or “flourish” or “reinvest”. I chose “simplify” because my life is too complicated for my head to deal with and I need to make it less so. But then I thought if I really wanted to simplify my first step should be to simplify my word, so I cut it down to “simple”, which works well because it’s a simpler version of simplify and also because “simple” also means “ignorant or foolish” and that just seems fitting. But then I thought that if I really wanted to simplify I should start by cutting out the extra work that I always make for myself so I decided to cut the idea of even having a word for the year. Done. Simple.
PS. I’m not sure if this is how this is supposed to work but I do feel like I’ve accomplished something, so, fair play.
PPS. I told Victor he needed to pick a word for the year and he just screamed: “RETRIBUTION!” I told him he needed to pick another word and he chose “tanning”. Hailey’s word is “grape”. I don’t think either of them are doing it right but they seem happy.
PPPS. Your turn. What’s your word?
And now, the weekly wrap-up:
Shit I made in my shop (Named “EIGHT POUNDS OF UNCUT COCAINE” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):
- Good company to be in.
- This is brilliant and it’s inspiring me to do it myself.
- Dark and fascinating, but not for the easily offended. My book pick of the week: Beyond the Dark Veil: Post Mortem & Mourning Photography from The Thanatos Archive
This week’s wrap-up is brought to you by Happening-Life.com a website for a wide range of topics, including parenting, relationships, self-development, fashion, beauty and more. It provides practical advice that readers can apply in their lives and expand their horizons. Recently, the website delved into exploring the meaning of life and its purpose; questions that most people ask at some point in life and would like to know the answers to for a greater sense of fulfillment. It’s quite interesting. Check it out here.
