Hi there scrappy friends, welcome back!
I am here today to take a moment to share my One Little Word for 2017.
I have decided that this OLW is what I want to use to inspire me personally, my goals and help me grow this year. There are a few aspects of this word that come into play and I’m here to share with you what they are. But also, I want to put this down in writing as I want to be able to look back in a year and see how much this Word has made a positive change in my life.
There are four aspects of my life that I want to put this word into practice so here they are:
1. FOCUS… ON THE GOOD
I feel like I have been struggling this past year to focus on all the good that is around me. The daily struggles of life have distracted me from appreciating what blessings I have and have led me to compare myself to things and people that do not help me live a happier life.
That is why this year I want to focus on the good. I want to focus on the blessings big or small that come my way. I want to focus on the happy moments with my family. I want to focus on what I have instead of what I don’t.
If I do this, I see myself being happier and feeling blessed with what I have.
2. FOCUS…. ON ONE THING AT A TIME.
I think that this past year, more than ever, I have over calculated how much I can do. I have left myself overwhelmed more that once by creating a bigger agenda than I can handle.
I want to change that this year. I want focus on one thing at a time so that I can do more! I will no longer push myself more than I know I can’t handle. I want to focus on one thing at a time so that I may savor it and enjoy the process.
As I step into a new stage of my scrapbooking career I really want to take this into account. I want to succeed in my efforts to keep growing so I think by taking it one step at a time I can get there. No more overloading projects, no more adding to the list. I simply want to focus on what is in front of me at the moment and ENJOY!
3. FOCUS…. ON QUALITY TIME.
I think that including my family is always important for my OLW. This year I want to focus on quality time with my son, with my husband, and quality time together as a family.
As a stay-at-home mom I found how easy it can be to take the day to day life as granted. I don’t want to do this anymore. I want to give my son quality time every day. I want to spend quality time with my husband alone (just the two of us) because it will help strengthen our marriage and our friendship. But I also want to give all three of us quality time to spend together and bond as a family.
I hope to slow down a lot and give the boys in my life the quality time they deserve from their momma and wife.
4. FOCUS…. ON MYSELF.
Seriously, I don’t want to sound selfish. That’s not what this is about. This is about taking care of myself so that I can take care of the rest.
I think that I deserve to focus on myself. I want more naps, more pampering, more coffee in the mornings, more doing things that make me happy. I can totally continue with that list of “more’s” without a problem right? Haha. But that’s the point!
I feel that I have reached a point in my life where I just have to take it as it comes but I really want to ENJOY it as it comes, too! I want to be happy with myself by taking better care of myself. Because if momma is strong, she can keep her household strong too.
I am excited to have such a strong and powerful word guide my goals this year. After much growing last year, this year I want to slow things down a little and focus in on the people I love, the things I love to do and savor each big or little moment as it comes.
2017 is MY year! Let’s do this!!!
