a plain and simple life is a full life.
It may be hard to believe, but we're quickly approaching the end of the first Quarter of 2014.
While we haven't touched on this topic in nearly 2 months, hopefully, you have continued to revisit the One Word you have chosen as your core focus for the year.
On the chance that you haven't been following this theme since the beginning of the year, feel free to check our original One Word post from January, and find the related posts by looking down the "Labels" section in the right hand column of this blog.
If you have taken a stab at this different approach to your New Year's Resolution, you have been adding up enough weeks to perhaps already be incorporating some new habits.
Did you start out strong only to find yourself forgetting about it over time? What have you done to make your One Word a habit? Are you seeing any difference yet this year?
If your answers are less-than-favorable, take heart! It's not too late to make adjustments that get you back on track. That is one of the beauties of choosing just One Word rather than making complex resolutions.
You may recall the my One Word for 2014 is "ORDER". This word might engender thoughts of a neatly organized office, papers all filed, tidy totes and decorative systems making a work space fit for a magazine photo shoot. However, my office currently looks nothing like that. (Of course, it IS still early in the year.) This word might also provoke thoughts of having perfect systems in place for handling all things critical to your child with special needs including schoolwork, clothing, medications, and travel equipment. My household looks nothing like that either.
What my One Word has led me to is SIMPLICITY. This is necessarily true for any single word choice because the focus itself is a simple one. One of the beauties of this approach is that it helps us to create positive change in our lives in manageable, bite-sized pieces.
