One Little Word

Do you know about One Little Word? The basic idea is to find a word to explore during the year, instead of making a bunch of resolutions.

I’ve picked a word for the first time. My word for 2011 is Appreciate.

I’m taking Ali Edward’s class at Big Picture Classes, and have followed the simple prompts for January.

I’ve adapted the project for a Creative Memories PicFolio Sleeve that I already owned. It’s not perfect, but it’s done. I loved exploring the definition of appreciate and finding meanings I hadn’t even considered.

“To be fully conscious of”

Wow, that would be really great, wouldn’t it? If I was just 5% more conscious at the end of 2011 I’d be thrilled!

“To increase in value”

Well, wouldn’t we all like that to happen in 2011!

And just to be more grateful, for everything — the good, the bad and the ugly.

Oh, and the photo? I’m appreciating me! Appreciating me, sporting a first place medal in my age group for the CASA Jingle Bell Run in December.

And the other thing… yes, it’s been a while… I started a job in December and even though it’s only part time, something had to give, and this blog is what gave.

  1. Mine would be “breathe”. I just need to remember to nbreathe and keep moving forward. I’d like to not get shaken by things that come at me out of nowhere. They usually disappear just as fast so I need to just let it bump my boat but not tip me over!!
