Choose- my one little word for 2013

My word for 2013 is choose.

I have been trying to make choose a part of my day for the past few months. The biggest way that choose has been influencing me is by waking up and actually saying to myself "I choose to have a great day, I choose to be kinder and gentler with myself." and you know what... I did and I was. When I forgot to start my day with those intentions I had a crap day, I was meaner and more easily frustrated. It was a huge force for me and I knew that it was the perfect fit for the new year.

I have signed up for Ali Edwards' One Little Word workshop at Big Picture Scrapbooking and will be building and album throughout the year to bring focus to my word, to make it more concrete.

If you're unfamiliar with this all...  the concept of One Little Word  began for me when I read Ali Edwards story a few years ago, you can read her first post about it here. The basics, choose a word that speaks to you, that will guide you through the year and help you keep focus on what is important or in my case, focus on the choices that I make.

Hi Nadine! I tried to leave this comment on your project life post, (3 times) but blogger wouldn't let me!! so I'm placing it here hoping it will click!

I wanted to say I enjoyed reading your post and I would love to see your continued project life pages. I have decided not to share mine on my blog because I feel it's all I shared last year!! LOL! Anyway, I agree, there are no awards for any of it, it's a reward to do it, especially when looking at the results!

Also, I love your OLW canvas :)

That is a great word! I can't wait to see the album you make in the class. What a fabulous idea. I am thinking on how I want to make OLW work for me this year....
