Word of the Year

Word of the Year

One word - so basic but so powerful.  Simplify means "to reduce to its basic essentials."  This is the word I've chosen to be my #wordoftheyear.

I find myself being pulled in so many directions that I end up feeling almost catatonic with indecision over the simplest of things.  I've decided to simplify my home, my work life, my expenses, my body and definitely my mind.  The new year just happened to coincide with my declaration.

I am currently decluttering room by room in my house.  If it hasn't been used or displayed within the last year - it goes.  I am currently eliminating any unneeded expenses. (Sorry, NetFlix - you don't make the cut.)  And I'm doing more yoga and herbal tea than running and soda.  (That's still a work-in-progress.)

While life can get extremely complicated, I've decided to approach everything with a "simplify" state-of-mind.  Do you have a word of the year?
