I know that many people have seen the idea from Ali Edwards about choosing a "word" for yourself for the year.
Well, Edie...one of my extremely talented friend challenged a group of us to do that to and then create a project for it.
I accepted the challenge and I chose the word PROGRESS. Why did I choose this word? Well, 2007 has been a great year and I have made alot of good starts for things I want to do for my life, but I needed to continue doing and adding to those things and after asking my friends for help, we came up with the word PROGRESS.
What I love about this word is that if I make goals and don't complete them, I won't feel like I have failed if I have even done ONE thing towards that goal. I am not going to spend my time beating myself up because I haven't reached my goals, instead I'm going to focus on the PROGRESS that I make in each area.
This works for me in every aspect of my life, I don't have to say, I'm going to lose 50 lbs this year, or I'm going to have a better relationship with my family. I just am going to say, I will make PROGRESS in all these areas, even if it just drinking a glass of water each day to start, or giving and extra hug or kiss each day....or heck even each week....each step is progress.
As I do make progress in different parts of my life, I will share and hopefully help you make progress in your life and I hope you will share your progress with me too.
Here is the project that I did. It isn't done yet, in fact it is just started. As the year goes on, I will add to it and eventually, it will be done, but for now....it is just making PROGRESS.
