It's hard to believe another year has come to an end. I hope your 2012 we be safe, happy and filled with joy.
This also marks the last of the 2011 One Little Word Blog Hop. I'm happy to say that I actually completed each assignment and was able to join in on the Blog Hop all year. That was a huge milestone for me, because I usually lose steam and let my projects fall to the bottom of the pile. This blog hop kept me accountable, but my word really kept me motivated.
My word was Ignite. When the first talk of OLW started happening this word kept showing itself to me. In song, in print, in conversation. I didn't really pay much attention until I had to choice my word. My gut told me this was my word but I keep looking. I thought I could find something better. I'm so glad I finally listened to my gut and went with Ignite.
My word has been good for me. And really this class has been good for my word. It made me at least think about my word for a short time each month. Some months I was more focused then other, but that is life. Over all, I would have to say this was a wonderful year.
Our final assignment for Ali's One Little Word class was our ending thoughts and feelings about our word. At first I wasn't that excited about this task. But once I sat down and put pen to paper I was really happy with what I learned this year. Here is a scan on my final page:
So now it's time to look forward. Ignite will always be a part of me, but it's time to welcome a new word into my life. Over the last few weeks I've been looking for my word. I've written a few on a post-it note and would keep revisiting the list. Sometimes I would add a new one or cross off an old one. Most of the time I would just look at them and see how they felt to me. One of these words keep calling me. Every time I read it, it felt good. It feels like the right time for this word. I know some of the things I would like to work on this year and this new word will help me focus on those items and I'm sure much, much more.
So what is the word.......
DEFINE. I love it already!!
For my title page I tore out the definition of define in an old dictionary and attached it to the page. I used some Harry Potter letter stickers for the word. I'm excited to see where me and my OLW will go this year. I hope you will come back to find out.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will visit all the participants of this blog hop. Your next stop is Nikki's wonderful blog. If you get lost here is the complete list of blog hoppers.
