Spin Cycle--Word of the year--2015

So it's once again time to do a word of the year.  Last year my word was balance.  I think I got that one relatively well handled.  I need to keep working at it as keeping blanace in my life is an on-going process.
Now to choose a new word.  Let's see some possibilities:
  • fearless
  • adventure
  • happy
  • patient
  • inspiring
  • industrious
  • organized
  • brave
  • confidence
  • consistent
  • trust
  • focus
Well, that is a list.   I think this year the word will be consistent.  We have a budding teenager on our hands.  Turbo turns 12 this year--solidly a tween and we have to be consistent with him or the actual teen years will be tough on all of us.
Being consistent leads to organization.  I have been consistent with chores around the house and strangely I have more time because I put in the ten minutes here and 20 minutes there that are needed.
Meal planning needs consistency.  I'm getting better at it.  I think we have a system that works.  Now to keep the motivation to actually make the meals.  However we all feel better for a routine and routines are best when consistent.
So there you have it.  My word for the year.  Consistent.  A pretty good word really.

What would your word be?
Spin it up and join up.

Happy New Year, Vandy! Yes, consistent is a very good word to aspire to. I think "balance" was also a good one - probably the one closest to where I'm at.

Great post and a great work. I totally agree consistency in parenting teens is extremely important and effective. Good luck with the teen years. Happy new year!

Meal planning is the bane of my existence. Gene likes to cook, likes to have foods 'presented'. I am good with a bowl of cereal. But you are inspiring me to give it another go.

Oh, I love your word! I need some consistency in my life, too. I like it so much better when my house is clean and I know what I'm making for dinner.

Consistent. What a great choice! Consistency is definitely needed, especially when raising children and running a household.

As a middle school teacher, I definitely have to agree with consistency being important when you're dealing with teens. Hard to achieve all the time, but I guess that's the point. We have to be consistent about being consistent!

I hate the 4:30 meal scramble. I mean, literally I would stand at the open refrigerator praying something would pop out that would resemble a meal. Now is just use the Woman's Day Month of Menus. So much easier.
