One Little Word 2014: CHALLENGE
Posted January 10, 2014on:
Last year, I decided to pick a word that would follow me through out the entire year.
Last year, I picked CHARGE.
This year, I picked CHALLENGE.
This year, I also decided to do the official “One Little Word” year long workshop held by Ali Edwards. Because it’s more of a scrapbook, craft type project, a lot of the posts of my “One Little Word” journey will be found on my CutieQ Cards n Crafts blog.
I want to blog here about it because I want to talk about why I chose this word.
I picked this word for the layers it seems to have.
Challenges can be seen as obstacles.
This year is going to present itself with a lot of challenges, the possibility of a new baby, becoming a mother of two, figuring out what I want to do careerwise. This year just looks like it’s going to be one challenge after another.
I chose this word to remind myself that challenges are coming. I must prepare.
Challenges can also be seen as tests.
This year, I want to challenge myself to become a better person, better mother, better wife, better friend. I want to give myself little challenges to push myself to stop being so complacent and just put myself out there. I want to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone sometimes and do things to allow myself to grow.
I also want to challenge myself to be more creative. Craft more. Scrapbook more. Make more card sales on Etsy. Make more custom orders. Make more blog entries. I want to challenge myself to get better at designing.
It’s such a good word.
It’s a challenge. It’s a push.
It’s my word of the year.
