The power of one little word. It can be amazing.
Have you chosen your One Little Word for 2013?
I think I've finally settled on the word Balance. It's something I constantly struggle with. I tend to be all in with whatever project I'm currently working on, to the exclusion of everything else. With quite a number of projects on the list for 2013, I know that I have to find a balance between all work and no play and spending time simply enjoying the moment or spending time with family and friends.
Each year I've chosen a word, I've had a pendant I could wear as a reminder of my word.
I have chosen a word for the last four years, and feel like each word, carefully chosen, has served me well. In 2010 I chose Dream. I had to push myself to dream, and dream big. I did, and wow, amazing things happened. 2011 was Believe. Once I learned to dream big, I had to remind myself to believe in my dreams and myself as I pushed myself to pursue opportunities outside of my comfort zone.
Last year's word was Courage, and there were times when I would reach up and take hold of my pendant, close my eyes and remind myself to have courage as I tried new, and just a little scary, things.
I am hopeful that wearing a pendant with my word Balance, will remind me to find that balance, to make sure I find the time to enjoy the journey.
Recently I've added One Word charms to my Etsy shop. I type them with my vintage Remette onto vintage ledger paper.
I also make pendants using a vintage stamp set. Using the stamps and vintage papers, I create initial pendants. They can be worn alone or with your word pendant.
I also offer a pendant that has an initial stamped on one side, and a word of your choice typed on the other.
What about you? Do you make resolutions? Do you choose a OLW? If you do, I'd love to know what you've chosen, and if you care to share, what prompted you to choose that word.
Here's to a fabulous 2013!
