Choosing One Little Word

creativegrowthOne Little Word for the Year
Personal…Professional

For the past 4 years, I have enjoyed choosing one little word to guide my year.  I discovered this practice from Ali Edwards.  It has been the crowning jewel of my intention setting for year.

This practice of mining for just the right word and allowing it to take me into the new year, places me somewhere between an intention, a wish, and a destination.  This year I have jazzed up my one little word for the year ritual by choosing a word for my personal life and another for my professional life, knowing that the two words will be like sisters to one another in the crafting of my overall life.

My Personal One Little Word for the Year: Sizzle

one little word for the year: sizzle

I usually begin dreaming on what my word will be towards the end of November and have it by New Year’s Eve.  I never know how it will come.

This year, I knew I wanted a word to express my desire to truly follow my creative impulse and to boldly embrace sharing my wildest, craziest, most exquisite creativity with the world.  I have been feeling myself holding back, editing myself and my ideas.  But I want to live this year with gumption!

I was with some of my spiritual sisters during a women’s gathering just before the new year as one of the women took us through a mediation to connect with the essence of fire in ourselves.  I have a blazing love for fire (yah, I went there!) and was drawn into the imagery.  I felt the fire, felt the flames, heard the ……then it hit me, the word.  SIZZLE!  I wanted that alive, fired up, hot dancing, vivacious expression of energy.  I wanted to feel the sizzle, explore sizzle, live sizzle, and be sizzle.

And so, I began playing with that word and, as is part of my tradition, I let it find its way into my art.  I am excited to share my latest mixed media project with you.  Art with an intention….that’s part of my sizzle!

Creativity Tribe is celebrating YOU!

About two weeks ago, I had an epiphany…a HUGE AH-HA!  And my epiphany spurred my dear friend Jessica of Hearth Roots to have a ricochet epiphany! We both had strong callings to explore a spirit of giving in our lives.  We have been visiting with each other about the effects of exploring giving and that has brought new layers of excitement to our new practices.

I have decided to explore what GIFT means to me this year.  It will be my One Little Word for 2013.  But I didn’t want to wait til the new year to practice giving in big ways.  So, I am going to get my gift giving jive on by giving away an e-course I had originally listed on Etsy about a month ago.  I have reworked it so that instead of a course, it is now a party with more goodies, with lots of creative hands coming together to offer YOU a gift for the holidays!

That’s right, I have been busy planning a holiday party. It is my very favorite event of the year…and I have been doing it for years!  This time, I decided to go big…I mean really big.  Like WORLD WIDE.

Speaking of gifts….AEDM has been a HUGE gift to my life. I want to thank my fellow artists and Leah for spinning this beautiful energy with me this month.  I look forward to the last couple of days like a coveted dessert!
