As I compare last year's One Little Word experience to the New Year's Resolution experiences of years gone by, I realize that my One Little Word held far more possibilities than all the resolutions I could come up with. With my resolutions, only success or failure was possible. With my One Little Word, anything was possible.
That is why this year I'm once again going the One Little Word route. As I perused the words used by last year's participants for some ideas, the moment my eyes landed on "SPARKLE" I knew it was the word for me! I mean why not have a sparkly life to match some of my sparkly jewelry?!?!?!?!
To shine or glisten with little gleams of light, as a brilliant gem
to be brilliant, lively, vivacious
to cause to sparkle
The last part -- to cause to sparkle -- is my favorite. Yes, I want my life to sparkle, but I also want others' lives to sparkle too. I want to create sparkle, not just in jewelry for others to wear, but in spirit for others to hold, carry and pass on.
Do YOU have One Little Word? If so, what is it? If not, what would you like it to be? Although I won't be taking Ali's class again this year (I'm just going to follow last year's prompts), if you like the idea of One Little Word and are interested in a creative way of focusing on your word throughout the year, check out Ali Edwards' One Little Word blog posts here and get class and registration information with Big Picture Classes here. I really enjoyed last year's class and found Ali to be an authentic, organized, live-in-the-moment inspiration.
Sparkle On! *♥*
