One Little Word® 2017 | The Reading Of The Words

One of the traditions that has been built over the last few years surrounding One Little Word® is the reading of the words by my friend Liz Lamoreux

This year she asked me if she could read the words out of order and I said, "Go for it! Let's mix it up.

If you are still pondering a word for yourself for 2017 I highly suggest you push play, close your eyes and listen. You might connect with a word you hadn't considered previously. Please note that Liz is reading from the list of words I compiled from my previous blog post (collected up to a certain point in the day yesterday). If we missed your word it was unintentional.

Listen to Liz read a list of the words here.

If you don't see your word listed below feel free to add your word to the comment section of this post:

The word I'm holding in my hands at the top of this post is from my friend Colleen Attara. She's been supporting this project for a number of years by bringing wholehearted goodness in the form of words made from reclaimed materials and I'm happy to continue sharing her talents with you. 

As many of you know I am also offering custom acrylic words (hand-drawn by me) in the shop in two sizes. These are the same acrylic material that we include in my monthly Story Kits™. People have been ordering family names, places, and other special words as well as their word for 2017.

Also, there is absolutely still time to join the One Little Word® workshop if you are interested in making your word visible this year and sharing the journey with others. Please note that although the main kit we were offering this year is sold out, it is absolutely not a requirement for the class and that I will be providing you the downloads necessary to work through the prompts just like I have in previous years.

      It's fundamentally the same :) (which is by design). I always record new monthly presentations with new reflections based on my new word and update the handouts and printables. Last year I did a couple new prompts while others were a collection of ones from past years. I'm a fan of running my new word through the same/similar prompts from year to year.

    Clean. Seriously...clean...I want to clean my head of all the garbage, clean out my body and soul of all the things that need to be OUT. Simplify was good, but it didn't prompt me to DO anything about my cluttered head, and surroundings.
