Whether you arrived here from Lisa's Blog as part of the One Little Word Blog Hop, or you are here because you love me and drop by regularly... Welcome! I love visitors! The One Little Word Blog Hop is a monthly hop run by Margie for members of Ali Edwards' One Little Word class over at Big Picture Classes.
Our December assignment was to complete this sheet closing out our word for the year and reflecting on the facts and feelings surrounding it. I know that "focus" was a good word for me and that I learned a lot about being productive and staying on task. At the same time, I had some colossal failures at long-term goals, so I'm clearly still a work in progress!
It doesn't really show up on the scan of this sheet, but I used a subtle grungy art journal style background and brown ink around the edges on this ... IRL it really looks much nicer (very artsy), but you'll have to take my word for it... I don't have the time or energy to get a photograph taken and edited!
I am not posting my Tracker sheet for December - I got caught up with the holidays and family and did not keep up with it at all. But it is a "FOCUS" trick that I fully intend to carry into the new year!
I will be continuing with One Little Word in 2013 and I am so excited about my new word... DARE! This word came to me repeatedly in early December - in a phone call with my sister, in an email exchange with Deb, in reading I was doing. And I'm ready to take it on. Dare to be ME - even with my own family who often don't see the real me (I'm seriously more afraid of their disapproval than anything else in the world). Dare to try new things. Dare to accept more social invitations. Dare to take the 30 day Paleo challenge. Dare to learn more photography skills. I think DARE will be a good way to bring more fun and enjoyment to everyday life as well as a way to push me outside of my comfort zone from time to time.
Do YOU have a word for 2013? What is it? Inquiring minds want to know!
If you are following the hop, your next stop is Ruth's blog. The hop goes "live" at 9 a.m. PST, 12:00 EST, so check back later if you arrived too early to catch everyone - it is a short list this month. If you get lost, here's the whole list:
