Members of the ArtDigest online group have been posting their word for the year. I've been giving it a lot of thought and think I was struck with the right word last night.
Last year my word was De-stress and I was quite able to follow it through the year. I've been sick for the past month and have gotten so behind on everything. While I find it frustrating that I can't do the things I want I am being pretty successful in not stressing over everything.
Last night as I was sipping my Sleepytime tea I decided to make a list of things I need to accomplish when I start feeling better. I do feel a little better today and decided that I should look at my list and see what little thing I could do to make that list smaller.
I actually crossed off three things today. So, I decided that my word should be PLAN. I know from past experience that if I have a plan I get a lot more done. This means writing down and checking off that plan so that I have a reminder of what I need to do and when. I often have things in my head that I want to accomplish but those are usually large, time consuming projects. If I find just a little time and see my list, it reminds me of a smaller project that I might have the time or energy to accomplish.
So this year my word is PLAN!
