My Word of the Year

We’re exactly 48 days into the New Year and I realized I never let you all know the word of the year I chose. It wasn’t easy but I was able to choose one word.

What is a word of the year? This word sums up who and what you want to be or how you want to live. It’s a word that you can focus on every day, all year long. This word directs your decisions and guides your steps.

I still have a list of goals I will like to accomplish this year but my word of the year guides my steps to accomplishing these goals….This year boils down to….SIMPLIFY.

Word of the year

If I want run a successful business and blog I have to simplify aspects of my life. I got so caught up in comparing myself to others in business and blogging that I can honestly say I became overwhelmed.


Simplification allows me to love what I do while focusing on making Sakura Luxe and Always Laryssa better.

I’d love to hear how has choosing a word of the year instead of the traditional resolutions has helped you in the new year? Let me know in the comments below.

If you would like to follow along with more of my lifestyle, home decor, DIY, and other posts, I’d love to have you follow me on any of the following:

I’m a wife, mother and owner of Sakura Luxe living my life in sunny California. I love to create handmade things but I also love to inspire others to live their best lives. Blogging is a great way to marry those passions.
