Word of the Year ... January 18 2012, 0 Comments

Sometimes the moments or things that just "happen" in our life are the ones that have the most impact.

I read Layla's post on her Word for 2012 and I thought ... oh, that's a good idea, but I don't have the time or energy to think of a word for myself.  I let it go after that.

I had been noticing posts from other bloggers with their Words but I really had no intention to come up with a word for myself.

I know I want change in 2012, I know I want to be more creative and accomplished this year but I don't need a Word for that ... Do I?

Monday night our internet kept acting up and I decided I really wanted to do something creative.  So I decided to whip up a little sign, nothing special, more of a quick little project.  I had a piece of wood that already had a base coat of paint on it so I thought I would use it.  I painted a word on the sign, once the paint was dry I distressed it (a little too much if I do say so myself) and then I gave it a coat of clear wax.  Then I put the sign on the kitchen counter where it stayed until tonight.  I looked at the sign from a distance and  felt the white lettering was too bright so I decided to tone it down with some dark wax, then I took a quick pic with my iPhone and I sat back down. Yes, I'm a little slow to "get it" some times.  I glanced back at the sign and realized ... OMG!!! That's my word.  Little ol me has a WORD!  I belong!  I'm not lost.  What is my word ... INSPIRE.  What better way to achieve all that I want.

I was INSPIRED by all of you to actually wake up and participate in this Party!
I hope to INSPIRE others by achieving my creative and physical goals this year.
I am INSPIRED by so many amazing women, and this year I will acknowledge each and every one.

I'm INSPIRED to take better Pictures! (grin)
