3 things

Carole and I have been chatting about the one little word idea. We both want to have a word and make it more visible in our lives but we are ready for something new. So, here are three things I want you to know:

1. Choosing a word. Some years a words jumps out at me, other years I need to search a bit. I thought I had my word until about a week ago and now I am letting a few ideas rumble around before I commit. If you are new to this idea, do a search for One Little Word. I have taken Ali Edward’s online class a number of times but I am less inclined to do the making piece, wanting to focus on writing and reflections this year.

2. On January 1, you are invited to write about your word. I will figure out how to host a link-up so come back here to join in. After this initial post, we will make the last Tuesday of each month our one little word day. You are invited to share how your word is showing up in your life – good, not so much, kinda-sorta. I will have a monthly link for the last Tuesday posts too.

3. Your word, your way. I won’t be providing prompts but I’m sure you will find lots of those when you search One Little Word. I am also sure you will get ideas and inspiration from what others are doing. The idea is to nurture the community and friendships that come from sharing our individual practices.

I am grateful to Carole for pursuing this idea with me. Be sure to visit her today and every Thursday for the Three Things posts.

What a fun year it has been connecting with so many of you.

  1. oh wow, Juliann – I LOVE where you’re taking this idea! I have a few words percolating in my head right now and I’m hoping one of them bubbles to the top in the next ten days!

  2. Count me IN! I too have a few words “percolating” ala Mary and I think I have hit upon a solution…requires a bit more mulling. I welcome the invitation to create a community within the community. Enjoy the day!

  3. I LOVE this as well! I did not do a word last year, but I have been thinking about doing it again in 2019, and this just might be the thing that pushes me to do it!

  4. Thank you for doing this Juliann! I think I’ve chosen a word for 2019, but in years past I’ve tended not to do enough with it after the initial choosing. I think posting and linking on the last Tuesday of the month will really help me to do something with my olw, and learn from everyone else. Looking forward to this!

  5. Hooray! I’m so excited about collaborating with you and the others in our blogging community with our One Little Word journey! I’ll be announcing my word on Tuesday, January 1st!

  6. This is great! I’m hoping to get back to blogging a bit more in 2019 and do generally choose a word. Looking forward to hopefully being a part of this adventure!

  7. My word will be KIND. If I have nothing kind to say, I will not say anything at all. It seems I frequently put my foot in my mouth.
