One of my Favorite kind of new-ish traditions for the New Year is picking One Little Word® to be a part of my journey. As a memory keeper/writer/ Blogger, I have a deep love affair with words and their meanings. So, it has been a perfect project over the years and this year I have decided to really "show up" and even participate in creator's Ali Edwards Class. Yesterday morning before work, I watched the videos and read the initial prompts. Pretty cool stuff as always. Ali never ceases to amaze me with her openness and authentic approach to life and creativity. Though I already knew the WORD, I would be choosing this year. The content sealed the deal that I was on the right path:) So, without further ado... My word for 2017 is HAPPY. I know it has a vague, simplicity to it. But, in some ways that is why I chose it. I love the challenge of unearthing more meaning in the mundane and after last Fall of experiencing a big dose of genuine Happy. I am bound and determined to discover what Happy really is in my book. I recently shared a recent epiphany in my last blog post, Are you a Badass? Cheers to finding your own Awesome Self in the New Year! . I discussed my changing view of happiness and how embracing my naturally happy nature is Key.
One Happy Apple. Growing up, like many of you I remember my parents saying ,"All I want for you in this life is to be happy". It always seemed like a vague, cliche thing to say. But, NOW it makes complete beautiful sense:) Especially after looking at this above picture of me at 1 years old. My Mother then capturing my own pure happiness in motion. I want that again, obviously the Adult version:) And I will try in 2017 to redefine it through One Little Word:)
