  8. Hi Jane! I loved this last year and I'm going to participate this year! I woke up this morning wanting a change but I didn't know how to do it. As I've thought about this this morning, I realized that I need to think about things differently. I know that answers are there if I'll just listen to the world around me. So I've eliminated lots of phrases--they aren't just one word--and settled upon the word 'diversify'; a paradigm shift, an attitude adjustment, listening to my soul and doing what's right for it. Thank you for causing me to clarify what I've been feeling for months now!

  9. Buck up (well technically two words). Life has thrown me several curves that have progressively dragged me down. Time to buck up and take control of my life.

  15. Hi Jane,
    My one word for this year is 'persistence'....I have had a goal for a while now 'to make more art' and this is the year. Each day I hope to hold a pencil, paintbrush or keyboard to paint, design, draw or write....it makes me happy.
    Thanks for sharing

  17. Hi Jane, I've been writing down words the past month trying to see what resonates. Some of those: refresh, renew, restore, play, astonishment and gratitude. Then I read the post above by 'donnalee' --she wrote "practice"! That's it! For me my word will be 'practice'--to practice being mindful, practice compassion, practice gratitude, and practice drawing! : )
    Thank you donnalee and thank you Jane for your inspiring blog.

  18. Jane

    My word for the year is "enough."

    As in I have enough, I am enough, I have everything and will not stress because while it may seem otherwise, there is an abundance to meet my every need. Enough.

  19. Hi Jane: My word this year is "Acceptance" -- of myself and who I am, or my photography (stop comparing my work to others'). Yup, Acceptance is my word.
    Thanks for posting these.

  20. I chose the word "trust", and I'm really not sure why. I kept trying to come up with something "original", but the Universe kept saying TRUST, so I am along for the ride, and we will see where it takes me.

  21. After much pondering over the last week, the words that chose me are "Emerge" and "Authentic Self".

  22. I have two: haven and hearten/heartening. I need the haven from my stressful job. Hearten and heartening are both a bit different but both needed as well both in expressing/giving and receiving. My words in the past have been grace, gratitude, and fulfill/fulfillment. The years with grace and gratitude were abundant in their guidance and transformation in my life. Those two words still resonate deeply with me. Fulfillment was an interesting word for a year and I found it a bit overwhelming in some ways to focus on. Hearten and heartening are going to be helpful and haven is surely needed so I start the year feeling focused and more aligned. What you focus on you become and so I wish to create and have that safe haven for art.

  42. Embellishment. In a word, it means to me adding a little bit of my own personal art to the things in my environment. I've discovered that the bits of time I spend doing this is repaid over and over with more delight that pushes back at the stress of everyday life.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My word is TRUST. I did not choose it, it chose me!
    I trust that I will be shown the most important thing to do this year.

  44. I came across my word a few weeks ago: 'orenda'. An Iroquoian word describing a mystical force present in all people that empowers them to affect the world, or to effect change in their own lives (- courtesy of Word Porn, one of my favourite fb sites). Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Health! 'Cuz I know what it's like when it's gone! And once I get it back, then I'll have LOTS of words!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am rescinding my original choice of LESS, although that is certainly my goal for the year. I have been toying with inspiration, in the sense of breath, so maybe just need to use BREATHE. I so enjoy all of the messages you post and send. Have a great 2014.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My word is REACH because there are many goals, people, and moments I want to reach. I've also decided to pick a monthly word because I love words and had a hard time choosing just one!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Curiosity is my word for 2014....

    ReplyDelete

  51. Been doing these annually with Ali Edwards.... this year -
    HARMONY - finally starting to pull all the diverse bits of my life into something that works.

    ReplyDelete
  52. My word this year is SHIFT. A gentler approach to rethinking a few things and making some changes.

    ReplyDelete
  53. My word this year is PEACE. I know 2014 will be more peaceful in my little world and I will use prayer and art to shun the fear that life may present. After all it is silly to let fear (false evidence appearing real) stop me in my tracks and for no reason at all most of the time! Silly girl. I am excited about what this year may bring!!
