2014 Project Life. January.

Here we go, friends. I'm not loving the smaller format YET. Or maybe I'm not loving the monthly format? I dunno. I'm going to feel my way through February and hope that I find my groove. What I DO love is that this project continues to ask me to notice my life.  I started out with a few simple cards…

thoughts on practice.

I've had practice on my mind a lot over the past few weeks. In 2012, I established twelve practices. I thought about those practices again when I wrote about rituals during the Reverb project. I'm drawn to the concept of practice more than goals (although, I do still set goals. I waver.). When I look at things as a goal,…

reverb remix 2013 : one word for 2014

this posts starts the "manifest" portion of the practice… 1. One Word | 2014. *updated* What is your OLW for 2014? Even though I don't feel like my 2013 OLW really took hold, I knew that I'd continue the practice for 2014. I put the intention out into the universe, and "invited" a word to find me. And find me, it…

reverb remix 2013 : one word

10. One Word | 2013. Encapsulate the year 2013 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Updating to my own version – reflect on your OLW for 2013. What resonated? What didn't? I've written about my experience with SOAR fairly recently. I didn't intentionally cast the word aside…instead, I felt as though I was always fighting with it. Isn't soaring…

grounded.

(Lucy Maud Montgomery)                                                            In what seems like an overly dramatic message from the universe, my SOAR print fell off the wall today. Just a few days ago, Austin tapped the SHIFT…

in like a lion.

Well. March certainly came in like a lion around here…and I'm talking Scar, not Simba. Yesterday was not my favorite.  I'm regrouping today. Looking for the lesson. I'm going to do some crafting. I might take myself to see Safe Haven. I'm going to continue to work on my vision book (will share soon). I'm going to buy myself an ice…

project life : the 2012 wrap-up.

2 things – 1) CONGRATS to Leslie on the Fiskars Giveaway (scroll to that post for details) and 2)this is going to be a long, photo heavy post. Go get a cup of coffee. I'll wait.  I am now 99% done with 2012 Project Life. What's the 1%? Well, I need to add in our Christmas card, some photos from…

2013 one little word : soar.

My 2012 One Little Word came to me while stopped at a red light. I thought that my 2013 One Little Word was delivered to me in the form of a beautiful journal, gifted to me by a beautiful friend. The journal – Courage Every Day – features lovely blank pages, and quotes about courage on every page. Courage, it…

looking back & leaning forward.

Oh heeeyyy, last weekend of twenty-twelve! My days tend to blur together at this time of the year, thanks to days off, short workdays, and (let's be honest) wine & sugar indulgence. My big plans of having daily Reverb posts and really deep reflection…well, yeah. So, I'm taking stock of where I've been, and making plans for where I'm going……

doing what works.

My Monday really wasn't working for me. I delayed (aka procrastinated) several tasks that should have been completed over the weekend, and attempted to do them before work. Like at 5 o'clock in the morning. I am not a morning person. The thing is, even as I was setting myself up to fail…I knew that I was setting myself up…

OLW : halfway.

We're halfway through twenty.twelve, and my OLW album is complete through….March. Ugh. I am SUCH the online class dropout.  Still staying true to the spirit of my OLW – shift. Most recently… Shifted my living room furniture after 7 years of it being in the same configuration. The new set- up is cozier/warmer.  Shifting my morning routine. No longer starting…

OLW: May check-in.

I am 2 months behind on my One Little Word album. I find that sometimes it's a toss-up btwn OLW & Project Life…and PL usually wins. Aside from the creative project, SHIFT continues to be present in everyday life. Here's what's shifting these days… *I've shifted into a few new freelance projects. It was so heartbreaking to let go of…

OLW Blog Hop : March 1st.

It's been a rather shifty month. Continuing to be surprised at how SHIFT shows up. The OLW "assignment" for Feb was to take a collection of photos that represent your word. Mine ended up to be quite literal. I've been pondering the physical layout of these – made the decision to go with B&W photos, but now trying to decide…

OLW : feb blog hop.

I'm having a blast taking Ali's One Little Word class over at Big Picture. I think that it's definitely going to help me keep my word front of mind. Although, to be honest? I kinda feel like it's TOO front & center right now. Barb suggested that the universe is clearly listening to me – and serving up LOTS of…

2012 one little word: shift

I mentioned in my 2011 rewind post that I don't feel like I truly honored 'abundance' as my one little word. To be honest, I think that I had a bit of a 'if I name it, it will come' attitude. I think that I need a word with a bit more action to it.  My 2012 word came to…
