One Little Word

Well, it seems that so far I've been a much better blog follower than actual blogger.

One blog that I stumbled across in one of those "This looks like an interesting link" chain of events is that of Ali Edwards.  She introduced me to the concept of One Little Word.

One Little Word is akin to making a New Year's Resolution. However, instead of listing of the things you'd like to accomplish, you pick one word to focus on throughout the year. 

In 2013 I will focus on this one little word:


Create


There are so many ways that this word can be interpreted.    

In 2013, I will find ways to create:
  • adventure
  • opportunity
  • passion
  • art
  • time
  • myself
  • happiness
  • space
  • kindness
  • memories
  • a healthy lifestyle
  • smiles / laughter
  • my story
  • projects
This year I'll enter a new decade in my life, and with my one little word I'm pledging to take a more active role in how the days, months and year play out.  I am hopeful that this will also lead to creating more blog entries - we'll see how it goes.  {smile}

P.S.   I wanted to include at least one photo in this post, but for some reason the system isn't letting me browse my drive at the moment...  hopefully  I'll get this issue figured out for the next post.

Kathy, You picked a great word, and great goals.
I like this idea too, and last year I picked the word "Believe" and it really worked for me. My word for this year is "Focus" I have not done much with it yet. Hope to "Focus" more on my priorities, and learn to "Focus" better with my camera with Picture taking, etc. LOL
Hope you have a good week, and I hope we are able to get together again this year at another OWH get together. Blessings, Jill

Hey Kathy, I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering how you've been! Glad all is going well on your end. I haven't chosen a word for the new year to focus on....I'll focus on whatever word comes to mind in any given situation, and that's the best I can give :) Good luck with yours, and I hope it brings positive changes for you! We need to get together and stamp soon, because my motivation is fading fast!

My word is INSPIRE

I plan to not only BE inspired by people and events in life, but also I hope to INSPIRE others to try to reach their own goals, and also INSPIRE people to know that they can try new things, and not hold back! I need practice in the latter of the two areas, also!
