One Word (or two) for 2019.

It's that time again to ditch the New Year's resolutions in favor of One Word to focus on all year long. I've picked my one word for 10 years now and it's helped me to stay focused on what I want to accomplish. For instance, rather than saying, "I want to lose weight," I might... Continue Reading →

One Word 2018: Let Go

In past years I have had my one little word for the new year come to me by December. Not this year. This year has been a little more labor intensive to find it. I had a handful of words picked out but not one seemed right. Then I saw the Bible verse of Philippians... Continue Reading →

One Little Word :: 2017 #prayer

Do you make New Years resolutions? Not me. I always have good intentions to get in shape. Then, by February I am sitting on the couch eating guacamole and chips, watching The Biggest Loser. Instead of a resolution I choose One Word. One word helps keep me focused for 365 days. There is only one... Continue Reading →

Gratitude and Prayer

My One Little Word (OLW) for 2016 is gratitude. And yet, here it is almost August, and I have written about gratitude...maybe three times? I haven't counted, but it's been a long time. In the gratitude journal that sits on my bedside table, I've long stopped writing a gratitude list everyday. It's turned into more... Continue Reading →

A different kind of resolution list: chuck it list

January signals a new start. A time when everyone is thinking about their grand plans for the new year, then proudly proclaim it on social media of their choice. I chose my One Word. Did you? A friend mentioned a book she bought over the weekend. It's called the The Chuck It List. She bought... Continue Reading →

One Word 2015 | CREATE

Do you make New Years resolutions? Not me. I always have good intentions to get in shape. Then, by February I am sitting on the couch eating Cheetos watching The Biggest Loser.

Still Leaping | One Word 365

Can you believe it's April already? We're going on four months of living our One Word. Think back to January 1st. Remember when you picked your word for 2014? Or maybe you went old school and proclaimed a New Year's resolution. Remember when it was all fresh like the dandelions peeking their head out of... Continue Reading →

What I’ve Learned This Month

We are now a month into 2014...How's your New Year's One Little Word (or resolution) going? Staying on track or falling off track? My OLW is LEAP. I have learned in order to reach any great goal one must have a plan (or two). Focus is a must to keep on track. To LEAP I... Continue Reading →

Leap | Something More

Ultimately I blog for myself. To document stories of my life and the life of my family. To satisfy the voices in my head. The voices that want to speak but don't feel they can. I find that when I try to speak my mind, I can't find the right words and my thoughts get... Continue Reading →

Reflections of Joy

My 7-year-old, Parker, has been writing stories lately. These stories are always wildly imaginative. Her latest story is entitled, "The Zoo is the Greatest Place on Earth." The zoo in her story is not just any 'ol zoo. Oh, no, it features special animals like polka dotted polar bears and pink penguins. Who wouldn't love... Continue Reading →

2013 One Little Word

The beginning of a new year is traditionally a time of reflecting and setting new goals. I am not a fan of New Year’s resolutions. All too often we make a resolution of kicking our caffeine habit…losing weight…eating less junk food…or whatever. We do alright at first. Maybe even last a few months but by... Continue Reading →

One Little Word, 2012

I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions. All too often we make a resolution of kicking our caffeine habit...losing weight...eating less junk food...or whatever. We do alright at first. Maybe even last a few months but by March we fall back into our old habits again. I like the idea instead of picking... Continue Reading →

Happy Half Year

July marks the mid-point of the year. Happy Half Year to you! Depending on how you choose look at it, either you can't believe the year is half over, or you have 6 more months to look forward to. Let's celebrate! Bake a cake (like I need an excuse for cake), or simply lay in... Continue Reading →

forget resolutions…instead focus on ONE LITTLE WORD

I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions. All too often we make a resolution of kicking our caffeine habit...losing weight...eating less junk food...or whatever. We do alright at first. Maybe even last a few months but by March we fall back into our old habits again. I like the idea instead of picking... Continue Reading →
