hi again and welcome to 2016!!
it’s that time of year for fresh starts, clear ideas and a new ONE LITTLE WORD. this project was created by ali edwards. click here to find out more about it.
i have chosen many words over the years and unlike my previous words – this word didn’t come easily. i actually had two other words chosen. then i had one FOR SURE. i even did an entire 2-page layout introducing my word for 2016. but i began to feel like it was empty and not really something that had any possibility of changing me. that word was HAPPY – and my layout ROCKS by the way.
the other word i was pulled to was OPEN. but it wasn’t inspiring and not very action-y. although i had made a pinterest board and was preparing myself for the change from HAPPY to OPEN, something just didn’t sit right. this feeling was very overwhelming as i lay awake at 3am a few nights ago.
when i was browsing ideas and inspiration for OPEN, i ran into an amazingly creative crafter who had the word QUALITY the previous year. i stopped for a moment and within 2 seconds i had already come up with a list of things i could improve upon with this word.
that was it. QUALITY is my word for 2016. seriously. i’m not changing it. no really. for sure!
these are the categories i will focus on with some high-level action items. i have deeper goals within each of these that will make them more attainable throughout the year.
HEALTH: eat clean foods and maintain good eating habits. workout with purpose and goals.
STUFF: maintain only physical items that bring joy to my life. complete a whole house purge of unnecessary junk.
ART: create art with passion and purpose. create for me but inspire others.
WORDS: speak with truth and positivity. learn new words. less cursing (let’s be honest, that’s never going to go away completely)
