Update: My good friend Chloe Jeffreys has challenged a bunch of us to choose our “One Word for 2015.” I only did this once—last year—because it is excruciatingly hard to sum up my vision in one word.

You know I am not much for New Year’s resolutions. Everyone makes them. Most everyone breaks them. Besides, they are created in a way that sets you up for failure.

Spend more time with family.
These resolutions have one thing going for them. They are worded in the positive. They tell us what to do, not what not to do.
Yet, we still don ‘t grasp what they actually mean, what it would look like if we were successful.
