As has been my way, the last four or five years, I have chosen a word as a banner for the year. One that will be a focus and point of measure for the things I am hoping to achieve. This year I am once again participating in Ali Edwards One Little Word group after not taking part last year.
My one little word for 2014 is Thrive.
It is time to grow, prosper, flourish and bloom. A time to settle down roots and take up the blessings I have been given, using them for better and to bless others. There is so much more that is hovering on the edges to share which will no doubt come to the fore and be more relevant as the year goes on.
In 2014 my OLW album will be pretty simple. Following Ali’s prompts, examples and down loads. No reinventing the wheel, or doing it digital, or hybrid. It is about the word and the place it has in my life. The actuality instead of the craft. That said I am sure there will be a little of it sneaking in somewhere.
Like this fun little graphic I made earlier today on the iPad utilising Rhonna Designs App.
One challenge is Ali and I chose the same word. Trying to be authentic and not compare my work with hers will be something to work on. Many of her reasons and things she is hoping for in choosing her word are the same ones I am wanting. It resonates with all I want this year to hold.
It was quite a process to feel it is the correct One Little Word for me in 2014 so I am sticking with Thrive.
