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 →

Let go…of high expectations at work?

Let go.┬áSure enough, as soon as I settle on my One Word for 2018, God decides it's a good time to test me on the art of letting go. I subscribe to the Skinning Artist blog, and last weekend the title of Drew's email was, "Sometimes it's okay to let go..." Ugh. When did He... 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 Word Christmas: Light

I usually pick one word for the New Year, but lately I have been feeling I need a word for the Christmas season too. Basically, it is because of that over-whelming feeling I get every season. You know that feeling. The one that we feel we have to do it all this year. We have... Continue Reading →

The Making of Prayer Flags

High in the Tibetan Himalayan, colorful flags of blue, white, red, green, and yellow flutter in the wind. These are Tibetan prayer flags. "Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to gods, which is a common misconception; rather, the Tibetans believe the prayers and... 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: One Word

Today is Super Bowl Sunday. We're pretty excited here in Denver. My 14-year-old has developed an interest in football this season. So much so that she said she didn't care what we did for the big game as long as she gets to watch it! So, she planned the menu, we ordered special Super Bowl... 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 →

Take Stock in the Here and Now

We are one month into 2015. Thirty-three days of resolutions, one words, plans, and lists.  It's a good time to take stock in the here and now. And, the here and now is winter. Just when I was thinking spring was just around the corner with 70┬║ degree weather, Mother Nature slapped us in the... Continue Reading →

Create Your Vision for 2015

My One Word for 2015 is Create. No sooner than I found my word, I was invited to a vision board party. (Kind of wishing I had thought of this party idea myself!) You may know what a vision board is, or you may be thinking, "What the heck is a vision board, woman?" "A... Continue Reading →

One Year Blogging Here

Someone brilliant once said, "You never know where you're going until you know where you've been." The beginning of the year is the perfect time to look back on the year gone by. Looking back gives us a moment to remember what great things we achieved, what we still need to work on, what mistakes... 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 →

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 →
