My One Little Word this year is DO. I knew I really needed an action word this year. There are so many things that I need to accomplish! As I was searching for my word, I sat down with a pen and paper and made a list of things that I really wanted in my life, or to accomplish, and a list of things that I wanted to eliminate in my life. When I did this I had "DOs" and don'ts. Then it hit me…DO is the perfect word for this year. That was in December.
Also in December I received my first Story Kit from Ali Edwards. The theme was "Firsts". When I saw the stamp set, I knew that I really wanted to start a project. Instant inspiration to do. In fact, I almost changed my word to 'firsts' when I saw it. But I quickly realized that first is a great match with do. So, a project was born.
I have challenged myself to have more firsts this year. This year, I will be intentional about creating opportunities to do something for the first time each month. I anticipate that I will have firsts that are simple, easy, and risk free like going to a new restaurant for the first time. But I am hopeful that I will also take some real risks, put myself out there, and create new experiences for myself, and maybe even a few new experiences with my family.
I've started my firsts and will be sharing them here soon and as the year progresses! So exciting!
