Getting on the Band Wagon...

I hate new year resolutions. I think they are demoralizing!!! I mean you make a list of things you want to accomplish during the year. You make big plans to achieve this list of things and as the year goes by you get further and further away from accomplishing your goals... Then by the end of the year - you haven't accomplished your resolutions and you feel like total crap!!!! Did I mention I just hate New Year Resolutions?!?! Thus I have decided I am NOT going to do it!!! Nope I just am not going to do it!!! Instead... this year I have decided to jump on a NEW band wagon!!!

Last year my friend Susan participated in the "Ali Edwards One Little Word Challenge". In this challenge Ali says "A single word can be a powerful thing. It can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. It can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow.... Last year I began a tradition of choosing one word for myself each January - a word that I can focus on, mediate on, and reflect upon as I go about my daily life."

Yesterday, as I was catching up on some of my blog reading, I found that along with Ali Edwards, my friend Susan and even Tim Holtz have taken one the "one little word" challenge this year.... and I have decided to jump on the band wagon!!!

After much debate, much thought, and even careful consideration I have decided that my "one little word" for this year is Focus.

"Focus: to concentrate on or cluster around a central point or purpose."

I want to have more focus in my life, more focus on my work, more focus in my relationships, more focus on being a better wife, a better friend. I want to have more focus on my path to being a Godly graceful woman!!!!

So how about it - want to jump on the band wagon with me??? What is your "One Little Word" for 2008??? Leave me a comment I would LOVE to hear it!!!

Until Next Time!

My word for the year is "organize!". I am so behind in my scrapbooking projects so much so that I didn't get a chance to finish my Xmas gift albums...guess they'll get them next year. I want to organize not only my supplies but my time so when my little ones are napping I can scrap! Love "focus" too...my situation fits that word too!

Such a wonderful idea Lori. My one word is 'simplify'. It's not really a new word for me -- I've been carrying it around for a couple of years now but I still have a ways to go so it's going to be my word for 2008 as well.

That is a great idea. Hmmmm, I'll have to think about this one.

my word for the year is ASK, as in ask a question, ask for help, ask if I can help someone else.

I think mine is "Time" I need to manage my "Time" better, to spend less "Time" reading emails. Spend more "Time" with my family and pets, Spend more "Time" creating files and scrapping memories before I forget them.

I have others but no "Time" to write them down. LOL!
