The One Little Word (OLW) project was started a few years ago by popular memory keeper, Ali Edwards. Instead of making New Years Resolutions she encourages you to choose a word that will help set an intention and tone for your year. This year-long project is a great example of mindful memory keeping.
LOVE. While this word started calling to me at the end of last year. I have to admit I was scared of it. It is such a big word. So much power and yet so much gentleness. So I went for it and embraced it as my own. I think LOVE really builds on my word from last year, LIGHT.
I utilized Susannah Conway’s Find Your Word workshop to confirm the word in my heart. Funny enough at the end of the course she revealed she had chosen LOVE too.
In Ali’s One Little Word workshop she provides some amazing prompts to help you really explore your desires and dreams for what your word can be in your life throughout the year.
It’s already March and I haven’t yet jumped into the prompts but I will.
I already know my main intention for this word is to focus on and really embody, loving myself and others, in both tangible and more spiritual ways. Ali’s prompts will help me flush this out even more.
I’ll keep sharing my One Little Word journey using the monthly prompts. I’ll continue to share the visual reminders I see in everyday life over on Instagram. These small moments of mindfulness help keep my intentions for this word and for my life close in mind.
Thank you for spending a moment with me. I am grateful for you.
