    Ali, I love the idea of one little word, I will be signing up later this week and hope to really grab a hold of my word and have an amazing and life changing year. The last few years have not been easy and I have struggled with life and at many times felt like my life was running me. I struggled with depression and a way over scheduled life and family all adding to more stress and a sence of helplessness. Last year after reading about this concept I decided to give it a try, I didn't sign up for the class, but I did choose a word and it was happy. Just choosing a word and trying to focus on it was huge. I felt like I really could be happy, and for the first time in a really long time I felt that way. Not all the time, but I had made a choice to try and that choice made all the difference in my life. So Ali, thank you so much for all you do with this, one little word really can change your life, it may have actually saved mine. I can't wait to actually take the class and truly embrace my word for this year, CONNECT. I am going to actually plug in and connect with my life, truly connect with my husband and kids, and really connect with others. I can't wait to see where this will take me.

    [...] that frame of mind, I also read a blog post from Becki at WhippyCake.com that inspired me to choose “one little word” to remember throughout the year. I encourage you all to read both Becki’s and Ali [...]

    My word is curiosity! And I'm so excited to approach this year with curiosity and wonderment. I'm ready to try new things and focus on what really interests me.

    My word is PROGRESS, I want to be able to look back at this year and see progress in a couple areas of my life. Like weight, I get discouraged when I weight each day but now its about the whole year not that one day. It's about my daily life choices that in the end will add up to progress. I will also be taking on the second half of our house remodel, so I will definately see progress there! I am excited to start the OLW class and see where 2013 takes me!

    My OLW had not shown its face to me until I was reading through the list and comments. Over the years I have been purposefully growing as a person, each year trying to become better than the last and I had put some thought into what I wanted to improve on in 2013 but I didn't realize until just now that I want to RENEW myself in more ways that in years past. Thanks Ali and all for the inspiration to carry on.

    My word this year is ASPIRE. I want to aspire more...organization, activity, self improvement, grateful, open. I love what this word represents to me. I have done OLW for the last four years and truly am thankful for what it has brought or taught me! Thank you for being such a positive inspiration Ali...you really touch so many lives.
    Happy New Year!
