Word of the Year


Wow, today is the last day of 2010….where did it go?  I’ve got my act together this year (well… a little together anyway).   Because I have picked a Word for the Year.   I had too many word choices last year, and with that I got overwhelmed.  So, when I get overwhelmed I cope by shutting down…doing nothing…..walking away.   After all, the only person that it mattered to was me….so ignoring the whole idea was a viable option. 

Head over to Christine Kane's blog and you can read up about the whole “Word of the Year” theme which is in lieu of the dated “New Year’s Resolutions”. 

Here’s my little guy holding up my word.  For some reason NOTICE stuck with me.  Probably because I can be in my own little world, thinking my own little thoughts being rather oblivious to things or people.    I think it’s time I started to look for ways that I can be of service instead of thinking of what others can do for me.  Even being nicer, kinder or more thoughtful would be a better way to live.  If I am to be of help I need to see what needs to be done.  Not aiming for perfection here…Not aiming to change the world…..just aiming to improve my own back yard.

Well, this is the plan anyway……at least it’s a Start.    

Have you chosen a word?  Made a new resolution?  Are you ready for a New Year?  Happy New Year regardless :D

Dear Eden,
Your 2011 drawing is ASTOUNDING!! I hope you don't mind but, I printed it and I'll be using it on the front of my personal journal. It is a glorious drawing, and I'll be studying it all year. Thank you so very much.

My word is heart. I have planned to write one blog post a week about heart and all it contains for me.
Notice is a good one, too. Paying attention is part of the heart theme I've chosen. Don't worry about changing the world. All you are responsible for is what's in front of you, so do what's in front of you and I will do the same. Peace to you!

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser! And if you're really curious there's a 3 part Interview by Eileen: HERE All the best, Eden
