Ali Edwards really hit on something when she developed ‘One Little Word’ several years ago.
I thought about it last year… for all of about 1/2 a day… but it didn’t really fit for me so I left it alone. However this year I have a word that not only resonates with me but is ringing big bells too!
So what’s my word for 2012?
So why this word you might ask… well it’s simple:
· because sometimes I do everything I can to make everyone around me happy and forget about what I want out of life.
· because sometimes I go to bed at night and realise that the thing I REALLY wanted to do hasn’t even been looked at.
· because sometimes I seem to get further and further behind due to procrastination
· because sometimes my THOUGHTS and my ACTIONS don’t seem to match up.
It’s not about making better checklists... or hurting & ignoring others... or making it all about ME. It’s about doing the things that are a PRIORITY on THAT day... in THAT moment... or at THAT time so that I know that I’ve done the best I can with what I had available at that time. It’s about keeping it real... not taking on too much... and learning not to feel guilty when I can’t do it all.
I’m going to be incorporating my One Little Word into my Project Life album which I’m doing for the first time this year… and I can already tell you that my One Little Word is having a positive effect on my life!
If you’ve joined this project this year I’d love to hear what your word is!
Have a great week xx
