One Little Word 2014

Over the past several years I have chosen one word to focus on for the ensuing year.

Previous year’s words have been clarity, contentment and sing. I will continue to focus on “sing” in 2014 as I found it to be extremely helpful to me last year and an aid to some much needed emotional and physical healing.

This year’s word was easy to choose and came to me without much effort:


Forward thinking.

Forward planning.

Forward motion.

I’ve spent too long wishing for and then lamenting the loss of the plan I had for certain areas of my life. Towards the end of 2013 I finally accepted that that particular vision is not going to happen.

It is time to move forward and make a new plan and a new reality.

One Little Word 2013

For the past two years I have chosen one word to focus on for the ensuing year.

As the author of the “One Little Word” blog posts explains:

And what do you do with this one little word?
You live with it. You invite it into your life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads. There are so many possibilities.

In 2011 my word was clarity. Last year, 2012, I chose contentment.

This year I had a more difficult time finding the right word. I considered several, but none seemed to “speak” to me, none, that it, until I thought of the word sing.

Sing was perfect.

I need more singing in my life.

I need to sing in my life.

My life needs to sing.

It works all the way around.

Gratitude Jar

Earlier last week this photo was making the rounds on Facebook:

Why start in January?

Mine now sits on the edge of my desk.

I don’t know if you can see, but there are already three slips of “gratitude” in the jar.

Should I limit myself to just one slip a day?
