|One word: a year's worth of inspiration|
Leah at Creative Every Day chooses a word in December to serve as her theme for the upcoming year. It is a beautifully simple way to focus your goals. Her blog has a wonderful explanation of the process she uses to come up with her word.
This year she chose the word "Metamorphosis." Perfect considering the fact that she is expecting a child in 2011. She created a painting of a butterfly to represent her path: one of quiet time preparing for the transformation of motherhood.
Creative, Spiritual, Joyful
I used a couple of words to guide me in 2010: Creative, Spiritual, and Joyful. I will continue to focus on these words in 2011. I am working on a mosaic plaque for my office that will serve as a daily reminder of my path.
There are lots of great ways to visualize your word. Of course, you can do like Leah and create a work of art. Or you can do something as simple as writing it somewhere where you will see it every day.
Here are some example projects you may want to try.
