This post is about the movement of #onelittleword which is a word you choose in January and continues to emulate and guide you through the year. This is in an effort to be a better and more well-rounded person. I haven’t been a part of this for more than one year so far but I know a bunch of bloggers who have been doing this for much longer. Focus was the word I chose last year and I think it went pretty well. Personally, I wanted to try again and apply a new word to give myself grace and some room to change. If you’re interested in that post you can go read it here on my old blog. I love it if you left me a comment and told me what you think.
So this year I couldn’t decide between two words that really called out to me- Process and Growth. As one of my friends Raewyn said “growth is a part of the process” and well I agree that vice versa, the process of growth is also, just that a process. Much like last year, I felt like I needed a fresh start and a new space so I did move back to my starting place here on Blogger and now under my own personal namesake and domain; which feels so good to me. Thanks for taking the time to read and be here.
Starting over is the beginning of the process for most. Right now I still feel like I’m somewhere in the middle. We are continuously growing and changing, our whole lives are in a process of personal evolution. Wow, that was deep-if that even made any sense. I feel like if I can follow that statement then you could too I hope. In this vulnerable space, I wanted to make sure that I was following through and experiencing the whole process (I know it’s getting repetitive, I’m sorry). I am usually one to quit or give up halfway through and I touched on that last year as well. The follow-through part of each process is the important part, to be a finisher and not a quitter. I will be working on that some here this year.
Blogging is very important to me and I want to know that I am creating improvements, growing in this way, and making progress in a personal way as well. I have small goals I’m close to achieving already in the first week of 2017.
This was featured in the Hodge Podge Moments newsletter as an encouragement to go with one little word so I think I will include it here. If you aren’t subscribed to her now you should go sign up now.

It looks like consistency and progress in the meantime towards my smaller goals.

4. How does this feeling smell??
I think it smells like the treats I give myself after a job well done.

It tastes like the coffee and tea I down every day to attack my goals and aspirations head-on. I want it really really bad-so I’ll be working hard for it.
6. How does this feeling feel?
It feels so good. I feel like I need to make lists and check each item off as I see it gets finished.

I hope to manifest the words I chose for the one little word project above- Process and Growth. I want to be a better and more well-rounded self.

I wanted to share with you here and show you how easy it is to manifest your destiny into reality in 2017.
