My word this year is FOCUS. As I've said in an earlier blog post, by the end of last year I felt like I was pulled in too many directions all the time. And not being able to give 100% with whatever I was working on. IT. WAS. FRUSTRATING. One day, I was trying to clean up the kitchen while listening to DS reading. I was frustrated with him (the situation) because I still had a million and five things to tackle before bedtime. DS's reading was taking a long time because he was struggling. The missing key was FOCUS. If I would just focus on DS's reading, he'd go off tp play and I could focus on what I had to get done. DUH! Lightbulb moment!! And my One Little Word for 2012 was born :)
In the short 31+ days since I've chosen my word I've really tried to spend some time really focusing on a task every day. Folding a load of laundry only takes about 4 minutes, unloading the dishwasher takes about 3. I've found I'm also calmer. More at peace and less stressed. So far so good for 2012.
Here's a picture of January's assignment. I was so inspired, I think it was done within the first couple days of being uploaded at BPC!!
We have a total of 46 wonderful scrappers on the blog hop for this month, apparently it's the biggest hop yet!! You will be going to Cindy's blog next.
