One Little Word 2018

It’s that time of year for me to select my word for the One Little Word workshop with Ali Edwards. Each year I choose a word that I want to keep present in my life throughout the year and then I participate in the monthly prompts she provides. I am not always successful at completing the prompts but I really enjoy the check-in videos she provides because life sometimes swallows me up and I lose sight of my word so her monthly videos pull me back to focus.

In years past, I have always had a rather easy time choosing my word. This past Sunday, I was making my tea and thinking, wow, where is my word? I don’t have one. It’s already a week into January. Then I sat down to watch an old episode of Super Soul Sunday (SSS) with Oprah and her guest was the author (William P. Young) of the book, “The Shack” (which has also been made into a movie). I always take notes when I watch SSS and this episode was no different. But at one point he made a statement that pulled me right in. He said, “I think the process of transformation is not about becoming something that we weren’t. It’s about unveiling what we were the whole time.” And he said: “Allow yourself to fall into trust.” I had to pause the show (yes, I DVR all the episodes) because I immediately knew the word, “trust” would be my 2018 OLW.

Now I can go listen to the first video prompt. I will try to share some of the exercises as I complete them. Some are journaling some are more art-based exercises. I hope to do better this year with the prompts and sharing my journey on this blog.

Have a blessed day my friends!
