Slice of Life Tuesday: OLW Checkpoint

3 Comments

IMG_5345My One Little Word for this year met a fork in the road during the decision-making process, so I have two words: Dream and Do. My checkpoint for the 5 month mark made me marvelously excited!

  1. I dreamed of remodeling my house for years. We were finally able to DO the remodeling: kitchen/dining room paint, bedroom paint, furnace and air mechanics, and we put up a new roof! Progress!
  2. I dreamed of becoming a school librarian. I passed the courses, test, and added School Librarian to my NEW license!
  3. I dreamed of my children succeeding in school, and my youngest daughter graduated from high school last weekend.

I guess I picked the right word(s) this year! Thank you all for supporting me and sharing the joy!Slice of Life Small Logo

 

Happy New Year! My One Little Word (OLW) for 2016

3 Comments

I have been carefully pondering what my One Little Word will be this year, but yesterday I could not make a decision to save my life . Today I still cannot choose; there is a tie. A stalemate. A deadlock. After reading that a few friends chose multiple words to guide their years, I decided that I will have two words. It will be fine, because one of the words will be my inspiration, and the other will force me to act.

Dream and Do are my OLWs for 2016.

DREAM olw 2016

Dream — I’m finally starting to live my current dreams: writing to publish, looking for the joy in life, and finding new opportunities to travel.

DO olw 2016Do — Dreams don’t come true unless there’s execution. Want to write to publish? Submit work. Want to find the joy in life? Create happiness. Want to travel to new places? Get moving.

Happy 2016! It’s going to be a great year!
