Welcome to the 2012 edition of One Little Word Blog Hop! I'm so glad you are stopping by. I also want to welcome all the new blog hopper that we have joining us this year. This is actually my third year with a word. I started doing this in 2010 with my word Clean. This was before Ali started the class over at Big Picture and let me just say, I wasn't very successful with my word. Last year I was so excited about the class and this blog hop, both of them made me stay focused and helped me with my word Ignite. If you would like to see what I did last year check out these posts. So this year I knew I would sign up for the class and participate in this blog hop.
If you are new to One Little Word, it's a way to bring change into your life with out your typically resolutions. You focus on one word throughout the year to inspire you.
My word this year is Define. I decided to use black, brown, gray and white for my colors this year. They just seem to fit the word and I do love those colors. They are solid, dependable and abundant.
This word did not come to me as quickly as last years word, but over time it kept popping up. When I looked closer at the word, I knew this would help me with my aspirations for the year. January's prompt is to get to know your word better. I enjoy doing this prompt because it's a good mixture of words and creativity.
So what is define
- It is to state or set forth with meaning
- To explain or identify the nature or essential qualities
- To fix or lay down definitely
- To determine or fix the boundaries
- To make clear the outline or form
Wow, so many possibilities! This year my focus is to define my life. What's important and where I should be spending my time. I feel that I'm going in every direction and not doing what makes me feel happy and productive.
I chose this word because I need to figure out who I am now. Not who I use to be or who everyone thinks I should be - ME NOW. I need to figure out what is most important and give it my all. I need to live by my rules not what others have defined for me.
When I was looking for a quote, I couldn't believe how perfect this quote was for me.
Never be bullied into silence,
Never allow yourself to be made a victim,
Accept no one's definition of your life;
So that is what I'm hoping my One Little Word will do for me this year, help me define myself.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed yourself and we come back soon. If you are following the blog hop your next stop is Lisa's blog. Here is the list of everyone that joined in this months blog hop.
