Thanks for all the great comments this weekend. Lots to think about; lots to inspire action.Three people will win the entire Home Front collection (papers, stickets, journaling cards, and FabRips) from Studio Calico.
1. Sara • 2010 word is FAMILY. This year we will welcome our 2nd child and all the adjustments that go with it. But mostly this motto will help me to feel less guilty about saying "no" to outside projects, no matter how worthy, and refocus on the core of my life.
2. Brooke • I'm not making any official resolutions but I do hope to change my lifestyle to include more outdoor activities this year. We are already on our way with more visits to parks and another family park outing planned for next weekend.
3. Diana • My one little word came to me in church today. It was almost like our pastor was talking to me. And I listened. There are many things I'd love to improve about myself, and the lynch pin for achieving most of them is "humility." Being humble, acknowledging others, practicing patience, and slowing down to listen and be in the moment are all intertwined. So, I am going to start 2010 by being humble.
Cynthia H • My word of the year is finished because I want to be finished with my dissertation this year and finished with a number of unfinished projects. It hasn't been enough to resolve to finish these projects in the past, so I have chosen the past tense version of the word to hopefully visualize them actually done rather than the process of getting them done. My action today was to set a timer and spend one hour on one unfinished project to get it closer to "finished"!
1. Elisabeth Costa • Thanks for the opportunity to win some awesome prizes:) This Friday my friend, Keri and I will be getting together for the third year in a row to complete either a page or canvas with our word and intentions for the new year. We both look forward to creating, sharing and beginning a new year filled with more creative excursions.
2. Shanna Germain • My word this year is... "Word" I'm a writer, and I often forget the smaller picture, the building blocks of what I do, because I'm looking bigger. At stories, at novels, at making a living and a life as a writer. This year, I want "word" to remind me to slow down, to choose carefully, to see the details. This way, word by word, I will build the year I am hoping for. Also, the word "word" has a lot of power. Word. Word up. Word? Wurd! :)
3. Melissa Rhodes • I am hoping to take pictures that represent my word this year and make an album with them! Kindness!
Danielle Eaton • My word for this year is "rebuild" because we've had a hard year...so one of the things that my husband and i are doing is getting back to the things that we enjoy and taking time for ourselves. I'm also planning on cooking more and we're being more intentional in our devotions each night before bed. Thanks for the chance to win!!
1. Nicole • My word for the year is ORGANIZE. At one time, I was organized so that I could find things. Then children and life happened. I'd like to take this year and organize my life.
2. Gayle • I make a list every day and put my word on it - that way it is constantly on my mind.
3. Theresa • I've resolved to drink more water, less diet coke (my one vice!) So I bought a pretty glass and its sitting here beside me full of water :)
