One Little Word Update: February 2022

I’m late with this post because of the time I took off from the blog but here I am anyway with my monthly One Little Word update. The best news is that my stuff from Ali Edwards arrived and I was able to transfer all of the things I had written in January into my new journal.

And then I moved on to the February prompt.

I read all the documentation, watched all the videos, and got out my magazines and catalogs and started cutting out photos for my new vision board. I decided to create it right in my OLW journal instead of on a bigger board and I’m very happy with the results.

I also, following the prompt, created a mind map for my word. I identified areas in my life where I feel like practice will make things better or happier or more authentic. And I embellished it with butterflies because . . . I like butterflies.

These may not look like much, they may be very simple ways of connecting with myself and my word, but they have a major impact because the act of arranging a vision board, the act of creating a mind map, requires that I spend time quietly that I sit and daydream and contemplate. I think about how practice looks and feels and then I use the things I identify to produce a tangible focal point. I was resistant to this whole concept until last year and now I look forward to it.

And now I’m on to March and finding new ways to make practice work it’s way even further into my life.
