2016 Word - Thy Name is Consistency!

A 6WS: 2016 Word - Thy Name is Consistency!
Making resolutions seems to be something I have gotten good at (the list of resolutions I have made in the past look so wonderful and doable - you can see them here, here, and here  as well as here for a few of them) but keeping them is where I fail - drastically! This time around, my plan is to try to make resolutions I can keep and keep the resolutions I make - the key is consistency. So this is my word for the year - CONSISTENCY. Consistency in not just resolution-keeping but in everyday habits.

The wish I had for my friends for the new year was the one below:
'Each New Year's Day is like starting a treasure hunt again from scratch, with a slightly altered map.' ~Terri Guillemets

So, here is a treasure map for myself - one full of resolutions, slightly altered from the ones I made before and hope to discover treasures each day - the ones that make you smile, that show you life is wonderful - and to surprise myself with having found the treasure chest of kept resolutions at the end!

To start this off, the reading challenges I am joining this year are the ones below:
1. What's in a Name hosted by The Worm Hole 

2. NetGalley and Edelweiss hosted by Falling for YA  Level - Silver - 25 Books

3. Read Harder hosted by The Book Riot
4. Monthly Keyword hosted by My Soul Called Life

My Soul Called life 
5. Women's Fiction hosted by Book Date - Level - Classy - 11 - 20

And for the Friday Photo Journal at Serendipity is Sweet, here are a couple of photos - my One-a-day!

  2. Love the word you've chosen (I could use some of that myself!), and also the wonderful idea of the treasure map. Well done! All the very best to you in 2016. :)

    1. thank you Laurel and I know I need a lot of it too.. thanks for your wishes and your comments about the was fun creating it, and while i was doing it, my DD (all of 9 years) wanted to make one too - and I said that she could, as long as one of the resolutions was to write in her journal regularly - she is yet to work on the map now:)

  3. Love your map. Thanks for choosing to participate in the WF reading challenge.
