Brianna introduced me, very recently, to Ali Edwards and her “One Little Word” project. I’m not going to go into the project here, you can figure it out for yourself by reading her bloggy. I’m just going to go right into my word.
“Growth is an erratic forward movement: two steps forward, one step back. Remember that and be very gentle with yourself.” (Julia Cameron)
My word for 2011 is forward.
I am notoriously looking in the rear-view mirror when it comes to my life. I am so focused on what has happened to me, that I forget about what can happen – what I can do to move my life forward and, in effect, make my life better.
I will be moving forward with the ex-husband moving out of the house. Forward into a healthier relationship with myself and my kiddo. Forward into a better education and a better career (even if the details are still a little vague at this point). Forward into making myself a better person, a better mother, a better friend. Even a better writer.
I will move forward towards all of the goals I have set for myself, all of the resolutions I make year after year, all of the experiences I want to have in this life.
