I was never good at keeping resolutions. They were always too big or too many.
When I was introduced to the "One Word" idea by Christine Kane a few years ago it was immediately appealing. Then I discovered Ali Edwards' creative take on the concept and I was hooked! I have been an active participant since 2009.
and this year I thought I had chosen
but once it was announced, it changed to
Over the years, each little word has had varying degrees of impact on my life, but I definitely know that they've been far more successful than any resolution I've ever chosen! I enjoy using the "one word" method to frame my goals and intentions for the year ahead. *Warning* if you ever chose "do" be prepared. Mine wore me out!
When a creative opportunity was introduced over at Big Picture Classes in Ali Edwards' ONE little WORD project I joined right away. It was PERFECT. Then with "do" and "open" I was so busy living and in some cases surviving my word that I didn't have time to record it all in the creative way I had chosen. I joined in a couple of the blog hops and did a few assignments, but my life filled with so many other things I got away from the creativity I love so much.
THIS year things will be different. Not only have I joined the blog hop, I've offered to Margie that I will take the reigns coordinating it each month as she is moving along to other things. Who knew when Cheri suggested earlier this month that I use the blog hop for accountability that I'd be so proactive :)
Be sure to visit all of the talented ladies on the hop, but when you visit Margie give her a big THANK YOU for her capable and loving management of the blog hop for the last TWO YEARS!
An added bonus of visiting Margie is that she is offering a GIVEAWAY on her blog that ends 11:59PM PST TODAY, January 1, 2013. You have a chance to win a spot in Tracey Clark's class at Big Picture Classes called THE ART OF COMPOSITION which starts on January 3rd. The winner will be contacted on January 2nd and the class code expires on January 3rd.
