At the beginning of this New Year I decided to embrace a OLW.
OLW stands for one little word. . .
Ali Edwards began this workshop a few years ago and you basically choose a word for the year and then make it a part of your life.
She has little prompts and activities each month to help you embrace, feel, and basically bring it to life.
Ali recommends to actually go the old fashion route and hand write a lot of these prompts. I hesitated at first but then quickly realized how greatly I had missed this personal pencil/pen to paper activity. It actually made my mind and heart connect to this word.
As you can see my chosen word for 2014 is Celebrate.
It took me a few weeks to really think about the word I needed this year . . .
One that would help me achieve some new goals . . .
One that would help me see more beauty in the world . . .
One that would help me be a better friend, mother, and wife . . .
And one that would lead me to share some moments of happiness with others . . .
It was when I looked at this photo of my sweet Molly (my granddaughter) that I knew what my word would be.
Even at 3 months old . . .
She taught me the true meaning of CELEBRATING each and every day.
(this is how she is already viewing the world)
Here’s a quick look at some of January’s prompts and how I’ve begun my journal.
I’m going to try and post on Friday’s how and what I celebrated over the week. I would love for any of you to share what you have celebrated as well. You can send me your pictures or just a brief word through email and I will add them to the weekly celebrations.
As always my friends, thanks for dropping by. Go find a reason to celebrate today.
Because truly, everyday should be a celebration.
