Reflecting on our Words

If you've made resolutions in the past only to find them broken within weeks of the new year, you may want to think about focusing on a word during the year instead. I got the idea from Caroline at The Zen in You. She has a list of words posted if you need a bit of inspiration.

Several friends and I have decided to post reflections on our words as the year goes by. This is our first post! Joining me in this adventure are AVT Coach, Miruspeg, McMGrad89, and Octamom. I hope you enjoy reading about our words. You can share the journey with us by posting a comment about your own word of the year.

I must blog my word! Really, I'll do it. This is not reflecting well on my word so far and the longer I leave it the sillier I'll feel.

I like your idea of making scrapblogs for each of our words.

When I posted my post, all I could think about for the rest of the day was I wonder what the other ladies will come up a child waiting for Christmas morning to arrive. Did you schedule the post for 2.11am or did you actually post then?

Sorry I couldn't get a better picture of your beautiful face. Blogger wouldn't let me use your avatar so I had to use the one you have on scrapblog and enlarge it.

I have written more details about the song on my blog.

Keep reflecting....

How beautiful...Roban is the TAG one of the Group today. (That's the kind of stuff they say about me at school, its a good thing.) Thanks for going the extra mile on that one.
I love it.

PS Fixed up your photo on my post, Annemarie had a good copy, so I was able to retreive it from her post.
Well it in now 1am Sunday morning so I am off to bed.
Have a great day

How special are you Roban!

Love your FRIENDS scrapblog and acrostic.

There is definitely a mutual admiration society going on here.

Adore your new header...very vibrant!


Kimberly said...

Thanks so much for coming by my blog! Its nice to find friends in the blogging world who can support each other through the crazy world of teaching. I think even 8th graders might find magic in a yellow shoe day! :) I love your blog, and I will be back!

miruspeg said...

Every time I stop by you have changed something Roban.

Those Moments in Time new photos of you and hubby are just beautiful.

PS I will have to learn how to "Link to this post".

McMGrad89 said...

Your new header rocks! :-)
I also love your FRIENDS acrostic. It flows so smoothly. Not always the case with Acrostics. You are so sweet. Thanks for doing that.

Question: Why is mine blue?

This post is so beautiful and so creative. I love this and I have noticed the other blogs you have mentioned. What a great way to press forward. There are few things more powerful than a positive attitude. Great work!

Octamom said...

p.s.--love your new template for your blog--it looks great!!


Caroline said...

Oh I love this! And I love how you put them together. So pretty I want one! :) But I really like the idea of taking your word one step further...

My Word is Deserve

Dreaming big
Enthusiastic adventurer
Spiritual journey
Enjoying the moment
Releasing doubt
Victory over fear
Ever evolving
