Three Words for 2015

3 Words 2015Last year, I got the idea from Chris Brogan to pick three words to focus on for the coming year. My words were intentional, love and brave. Now, again, it didn’t go perfectly, but I loved having the words as a way to stay focus or refocus as needed. That is why I am doing it again. 🙂

My three words for 2015 are Relationships, Prayer, and Grace.

It is very easy for me to lose focus on the importance of relationships – relationship with my husband, son, family, friends, God, and others. I am an introvert by nature and I love being along and doing solitary work. I guess that is why I love to write and read! I also have a detailed eye, and tend to be a perfectionist, which in turn, sometimes makes me a little cranky to be around. :/ (Just keeping it real, here!) Anywhoo, this semester, I am taking five classes (15 credits), and I am hoping that having the word “relationships” as one of my words, it will help me not get 100 percent sucked in to my work.

In order to focus on relationships, I need to stay grounded in prayer. My relationship with God must be first, no matter how busy I am. Therefore, I hope by having this word, it will remind me to skee to pray always!

Finally, my last word is grace because I know I will fail and this word will remind me not to beat myself up when I do! It will also be a reminder that no one is perfect and I must give, not only myself, but others grace as well. 🙂

Now, what are your words? Do you have one or more words to help you stay focused on your goals and intentions for the year? If so, share in the comments!


  1. Great list of words. I have heard of one word being chosen but not 3. I have not come up with one yet. Still praying!

  2. What an excellent suggestion. Given my track record, I better start with one. When I am next before the Blessed Sacrament I’ll ask God for a word.

      Hi Michael, I am glad that you like the suggestion. Going to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is how I found my three words, too.

  3. Great idea, Carol. I’ll give my three words thought today. Agape will definitely be one of the three.
