    my one word ’23 {a}

    This New Year’s celebration was…different…than usual: We all stayed up ’til midnight. Had family over. Went tubing–fun!–with friends on New Years Day. (We usually have a mellow January 1.) And, this month feels…different…than usual: January ’23 hasn’t had that start New Years usually does for me. I’m not resolving or declaring. Anything. At all. (Which […]

  • a one word year

    a one word year

    If you’ve been around here for long, you know…I believe one word really can change a life. It’s the crux of this blog and my website. I chose my first word (or…it chose me) mid-2015. I was weary, grumpy, resentful. (One look at my calendar and I knew why.) That’s when I donned Authentic — […]

    my one word prompt {december twenty-two}

    December. December! I’d say I feel…ready. Ready for my last month with My Word. (Though elements of Engage will stay with me, for sure.) That’s some of what I’ll do this month, in fact. Sit with this ‘capsule’ of my word. A cheat sheet of what I did this year…and what will I bring with […]

    one word : :  checking in {august twenty-two}

    Welcome. If you wrote a post for this month’s check-in, I invite you to join the One Word party, share in Comments below, or reflect on your own–whatever works. I’m just glad you’re here!  As fast as July went (for lots of us, sounds like!) — that’s how long August has felt to me. …It’s the […]

    my one word prompt {august twenty-two}

    I’m not going to say one. darn. word. about how fast this summer is going for me. But I will give myself a prompt to address it. Hmph! Because…I love the four seasons. I like the smells, difference in weather + light, the food + drinks + sweater weights that go with it. In summer? […]

  • one word : : checking in {july twenty-two}

    one word : : checking in {july twenty-two}

    Welcome. If you wrote a post for this month’s check-in, I invite you to join the One Word party, share in Comments below, or reflect on your own–whatever works. I’m just glad you’re here!  It feels like My One Word ’22 could be Present instead of Engage this month. (Because, I suppose, when you’re engaged in […]

    my one word prompt {july twenty-two}

    Wow. I blinked. June’s gone! I kinda can’t believe it. Ready or not, we’re halfway through ’22. And at this time (well, in June, usually, but July this year), I like to look back at my prompts so far…at my word work to date…and consider — What do I want to bring into this season? […]

  • my one word prompt {june twenty-two}

    my one word prompt {june twenty-two}

    “In such ugly times, the only protest is beauty.” —singer + songwriter Phil Ochs This quote landed on my ears twice in May, and by the second time I heard my minister say it, I knew I’d bring into June with me (And that was before Buffalo. Before Texas. When it was just all the […]
