One little word.


Now that many of you have chosen a word for the year, what will you do to keep it in mind throughout the year? It can be very simple or complex, a craft/scrapbooking project or a simple reminder in your planner or on your bulletin board. Some sort of visual reminder is a great way to add a bit of focus to your word.

Here's a couple ideas for honoring your word this year:

• Go through some magazines looking for your word or themes/phrases/etc that relate to your word. Cut them out and collage them together as a visual reminder. This could grow and expand throughout the year.
• Commission or locate a piece of jewelry that features your word. I am ordering a necklace with "vitality" from Lisa Leonard. Love this as a daily visual reminder.
• Print out a word card (see photo above) and place it where you will see it everyday (a bathroom mirror or refrigerator or bulletin board are all front and center).
• Create a canvas that introduces your word. Dump some paint right on there and go for it.
• Start a journal to document thoughts, feelings, experiences you have with your word over the course of the year. This could be a visual journal or just focus on the words. Your journal could be as simple as a Word document on your computer.
• Expand your interest in words by playing along with the challenges on the one little word blog.

What are the ways you are planning to honor your word in 2008?

    I was intrigued by the idea last year, and this year will give it a try. After some thought, I have decided to focus on the word "serenity". I get so busy going from work to some other thing, and more often than I care to admit, I become overwhelmed. Setting some time asied to focus, relax, and allow a little peace into my life is a good thing, and all of it captured for me in the one word.

    I don't know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues
    with your site. It seems like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This could be a problem with my internet browser because I've had
    this happen before. Thank you

    Wow, that's so funny. I hadn't visited your page yet for this year, and had only just tossed around the idea of a word for myself. Came to your page, and there is the very same word I was maybe thinking of staring me in the face - vitality! I had just looked up the word on and it didn't seem to gel with what I thought it would be, but I'll have a look through your thoughts on it and see if its the same... maybe it was meant to be after all.
