As previously mentioned one of my 2012 ongoing personal projects is the "One Little Word" project with Ali Edwards. A few years ago when this all started I chose a word & I really used that word to guide my year. That word (I think in 2008 or 09???) was Reclaim. That year I reclaimed part of what I felt like was missing of the old me. I found the OLW concept to be very moving & I thought back to the word often when I was needing direction.
It's taken me 2 weeks but I've finally picked a word for 2012 (thanks to friends for helping me find the clarity & thanks to Kelly for passing this word onto me because last year it was hers). Drum roll please...
the 2012 word is>>>>>>> Release!
I need to release:
The fears I have for things I cannot control
The weight from my body
The power I give those who are trying to bother me
The shutter on my camera more often
The drama that people create that I do not need
My fears of Alex's future that keep me awake at night
and about 10,000 other things... that list is just the start. I shall focus on releasing things this year & becoming a person who is carrying less with me.
