It's the end of February and that means it's time for an update on my…
I’ve had a really good run with practice as my One Little Word this year and I was doing all of the monthly prompts from Ali Edwards. Until October. The prompt that month was to interview someone about how they saw your word playing out in your life. I knew I could interview Dale readily. I also knew I could ask Hannah or Jo-Ann or some of my fellow One Little Word-ers.
But I didn’t. I resisted it. And every time I thought about asking someone else to talk to me about my word I felt myself freeze up. So I ignored documenting October. But then that meant I couldn’t move on to documenting November. Finally, in a text convo with Kym, she pointed out that I could interpret the October prompt however I chose and that I didn’t have to interview anyone at all.
And yes, I realize how silly it is that I needed someone else to give me permission to change it up but that’s how I roll sometimes. I’m a Type A Virgo Upholder and it’s never more apparent than in a situation like this.
Over the weekend, I saw down with my OLW journal and my printer and some stickers and I documented October and November.
I’m so glad that’s done and now I can finish in style (and on time thankyouverymuch) with December.
Have you thought about choosing a word for 2023? I’ll be back at it again for sure.
