This is a project that I look at every year, but have never jumped in with. Why? I’ve never felt all that connected to a word. This year, I was driving home from work one day, stuck in traffic, and frustrated with myself yet again for not following through on the things I want in my life. I have goals in Personal Fitness and Nutrition, in Scrapbooking, for things at home and at work, for this blog even. So many goals. So many EASY goals. But I am a champion procrastinator, and it seems my motto in life is ” why do it now, if it can be done tomorrow?”. I want to change that about myself.
So, I signed up. My word is GOALS, and I am loving it. Ali is so low-key. The workshop itself is so low-key. I love that aspect, because as a scrapbooker, it’s important that it doesn’t feel like yet another project. We all have enough of those on the go. Once a month, we get prompts, and have all month to complete them. They are really thought-provoking, and have challenged me to look at why I procrastinate. I think the answer to that is the fear of success (or more specifically, sustaining it once I achieve it). Silly, right?
I’m not sure yet if I will share my book. It’s kind of personal, you know? But at the same time, there’s the creative aspect that I enjoy, so I’ll just roll with it and share if I feel so inclined.
For those of you who are feeling like there’s something in life that needs focus, consider One Little Word for yourself.
