Each Tuesday Ruth and Stacey at Two Writing Teachers host Slice of Life Stories (SOLS). This is where bloggers link up to share anything they would like to share about what is happening in their lives.
My One Little Word
I was so thrilled when my Twitter and blog friends clued me in to this One Little Word (OLW) idea. I had made the decision to NOT make resolutions which I discussed this last week, but I was really excited about OLW.
Then, of course I had to think of my word, a word that would guide my actions, interactions and thoughts this year......no pressure.
I have been thinking and a few times I thought I had made up my mind, but then it just didn't feel right. So I tossed around a few more words, maybe present? Present is good. Everyone needs to be more present. Or healthy, I definitely need to make healthier choices.
It went like this for a few days. But now I have finally made my decision. My OLW is revealed in the word cloud below along with a few others I gave a spin.
Why did I choose reach? A simple answer is, it just felt right. Reach can mean so much. Reach inside and find strength, patience, energy, faith. Reach toward others. Reach your goals. Reach to lend a hand.
This year I have many goals for myself and some of them will require me to reach outside my comfort zone to try new things. My goals will require that I reach within and decide what is important.
So there it is, my One Little Word.
