We love to look at all of the 2016 goals and visions floating around on social media right now! The hope and promise of what a new year can bring is so inspiring. When we sat down for coffee to plan out content and talk about what we wanted The Wild Revival to be in 2016, we left our meeting feeling both a sense of contentment and hope.
After some brainstorming, we started listing words we thought adequately described our feelings toward the new year…. slow, steady, intentional, heartfelt, solid, genuine, deeply-rooted.
And suddenly, there it was.
Our word for 2016 is: d e e p l y – r o o t e d.
(adjective: firmly planted or established.)
Ephesians 3:17-19 says:
We agreed that it best describes the kind of women we want to be this year as we grow our blog. We want to be deeply-rooted and dedicated to connecting + engaging with you ladies and in our personal lives this year. We are all in with life and this blog allows us to pursue our passions on the side. We want to be deeply-rooted in our faith and in the pursuit of what fulfills us to our core.
So in true “Wild Revival Spirit” of keeping it real… we decided our vision board was going to be just that– realistic and focused on what we know we can do. We wanted to use images relevant to our year ahead… ones that helped us find the beauty in what already is. More on that subject HERE, where Amanda shared her new perspective for 2016. I have a feeling it will resonate with a lot of you. Especially those of who you feel the pressure to always do things bigger and better than the year before. Her post will give you some insight into how to lay that down and live in the now.
So, cheers to a year full of intentional gatherings, quiet, heartfelt conversations over coffee, dedicated work and lots of laughter!
We’re not closed off to the big + exciting, but it’s not our fight to fight. If this blog is to grow, and if our personal desires are to be met, God will do the heavy lifting. We just need to be rooted in The Word, our faith and our commitment to show up for you ladies.
