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.
