Remember last year, when I told you about the One Little Word idea?
The concept is basically this – instead of making a bunch of New Years Resolutions that depress you and make you feel inadequate, you chose a word. A word to live your life by for a year.
My word last year was “joy” ~ it was perfect. I bought 3 joy necklaces, and wore one every day to remind me of my word. Whenever I would feel myself getting frustrated, I would reach up and touch my necklace and remind myself to find joy.
This year, I was thinking of possibly going back to the old way, the depressing resolutions way. You know…exercise at least 4 times a week, clean out the garage, eat more beans. But then it became…well…depressing. It totally lacked the excitement that I felt last year.
So, while laying (or lying – I hate grammar) awake at 4:54 am one morning, my word came to me. CREATE. Create ~ it’s as perfect as Joy was. Create, as in: create a happy home, create something for those you love, create a beautiful garden, create a body I’m proud of…see, it’s all positive!
Now, I’m off to Etsy to find what kind of cute CREATE jewelry I can find!
What’s your word?
