Word of the Year! Have Yours? Now What?

Word of the Year

Well, it’s almost the end of January 2016…….Have you chosen a word for the year or set some goals for yourself?

How are you doing? 

We are big fans of choosing a word for the year.  The goal of this post is to hopefully motivate you to keep your little word a focus in your life.

I’ve gathered some ideas I’ve found from around the web to keep myself focused and want to share these ideas with you because they’re good ones.

If you don’t know about the “One Little Word” project that is growing in popularity each year you may want to visit Ali Edward’s site. She is the instigator of this amazing idea and has a lot of ideas to be successful in using it to better yourselves.

If you would like to start enjoying the benefits of setting goals using one word or are having a hard time coming up with a word this list may be helpful.

Once you have your word you don’t want to forget it and that’s easy to do if it’s not front and center as you go about your days. For the Family shares how she starts.

A vision board is a great way to add a visual element to help you focus on your word. Artful Parent shows us an effective way to make one.

Jewelry is the perfect way to always keep your word close to you. I love these designs by Creative Carmella.

Creating art and displaying it is my favorite way to motivate me to progress with my word of the year which is GROW. Here are several ideas:

How about painting your word on a wood piece?

Drawing and sketching is always fun.

Once the year is complete be sure to review how you did with your word.

There are so many things I could say but I will just start with the basics. Mother to 4. Grandmother to 11 (Yes, 11. All under the age of 9.) I am a former Army wife and we spent 15 years traveling around the world. It was such a thrill to have seen so many places and meeting lifetime friends. I spent many years working in the craft industry and love getting together with friends and creating. I have a lifelong love of thrift shops, antiques, and yard sales.
