One Little Word 2012.

It's that time of year again.. time for Ali Edwards' One Little Word project...  and I'm going to give it another try.

Last year my OLW was "change"... then I realized it was way too broad.. and what I really needed was some "calm" in my life. So I changed my word. My daily mantra then became "to just calm down" which, to be honest, really didn't go well with my chaotic life, yet sometimes it actually worked.

This year I've decided to pick a simple word that I can re-focus at any time: BE.

In 2012 I'm going to just be. Be present. Be organized. Be thoughtful. Be thankful.  I'm hoping choosing this word will help me take a more focused role in whatever life is dealing me or my family at any given time. I may even choose a different thing to "be" each month... that's the great thing about this project.. it can be anything you need it to.

My 2011 OLW efforts faded a little... due to distractions, forgetfulness, you name it. So this year I'm also adding some accountability by sharing my word with my good friend Monika Wright! She is an awesome scrapbooker, mini album genius and all-around incredibly crafty and creative girl - so I know sharing this year-long project with her will be inspiring for me.. and we are both hoping it really keeps us on track!

So bring on the new year! I'm ready for it to BE 2012!
