my One Little Word for 2016.

Monday, March 14, 2016

I realized I never shared this post about choosing my One Little Word for 2016, 
so I'm stepping back a little and sharing it today.

WHY COMPLETE?  The word complete popped into my head late last year after looking through my old December Daily albums.  To date, I have completed zero December Daily albums.  It's pretty sad. I also have, under my fabulous belt, two incomplete summer albums, and several "ongoing" projects: my inspiration *Smash book and my wedding *Smash book.  Basically, I'm the freaking queen of incomplete projects!  To top all that craziness off, I also have a long list of projects I want to complete {eventually}I will fully admit here that my original idea for complete was simply that: finish as many incomplete projects as I can in 2016.

BUT, then I found out I made the Pocket Your Year creative team (yah!) and I quickly realized this goal of mine probably wasn't realistically possible.  So... I thought "I need a new word!" (BRAVE!)  But... after listening to Ali and Elise talk about One Little Word and the whole concept of it, I decided to stick it out with complete and see where it takes me this year!  (whether you're a OLWer or not, this is a great episode to listen to!)

So now what?  Now I have no idea!  Just kidding.  But not really...I've already been thinking LOTS about complete this year so far.  Some of the questions I've been asking myself is: 
  • What does a complete life look like to me?
  • {Given our learning of having fertility issues} what does it mean to me to have a complete family?
  • What would a complete version of myself feel like, and look like?  What will I be happy with?
  • AND, why the heck do I struggle so much with completing projects?

I think complete is going to be freaking awesome for me this year!  I'm really excited to see where it takes me, and what I discover from it.  So, hello complete, my OLW for 2016!!

What is your OLW for 2016?  Share some deets in the comments below!

  1., I'm the "Queen of Incomplete Projects" but I'll let you share my title, if you're nice! ;0)

  2. Looks like your complete bug is catchy. I have been completing all my non paper crafting projects that have been sitting in my closet for, cough 10 years. My OLW this year was grow because I had a felling this year was going to a year that I was going to do some growing personally. I had a funny feeling that I was going to have to have to find a new normal.

  3. Such a great post!!
    I have to say I give you credit to sticking to your word when you were wavering.
    I have a word…actually two, lol.
