OLW 2016 | Alive
Hi! As the new year starts I am also starting a new project. This year I am playing along with Ali Edward´s One little word. I have used the idea of having a word of the year before, but haven´t worked as methodical with it like I intend to do this year.
When I went about choosing my word I first thought I wanted to use energy. As a person suffering from cronical tiredness energy is something I think about a lot. I want to work towards more energy. But then I came upon an online thessaurus and what it does is it allows you to type in one word and you get several synonyms. Long story short, I am going with alive. I want to not only exsist, but to be alive, have more energy, experience things, adventure, say yes and to be excited and see the positive.
Wow, that is huge, right?! Well, I am really hoping to work on this from different angles.
Ali used a quote in here album that goes like this:
"I want to die living and I want to be remembered as one who lived with purpose, joy and feeling.
I want to spend my time learning what goes into a whole and happy life and then building that life the best I can." - Steve Goodier
I was going to use another quote to start of with, but when I read this it all resonated with my so much.
I will be sharing my pages and process on my word every month. You are welcome to come along for the ride!
A word to focus on, to live with, to investigate, to write about, to craft with, and to reflect upon as I goes about my daily life.
