One Little Word – this is one project that I’ve done before and hadn’t planned on doing this year. However, while reading through the forum in Kim’s Studio | Online, the subject of a Word for the year was being discussed. I was responding to the post and explaining how this type of project normally falls by the wayside for me and that I was going to pass it up this year because I want to “simplify” things for myself and not take on more than I can comfortably handle in 2015. As I proofread my comment before hitting the submit button, the Word “simplify” smacked me like a wet rag and the idea to go ahead and embrace this Word for myself but instead of trying to create an album with alot of journaling…..I’ll be doing it through my photography mixed with some quotes and thoughts along the way.
Introducing my Word – Simplify
The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. – Hans Hofmann
This quote really spoke to me because that’s what I want to concentrate on this year……..the necessary……..the important things in life that I’ve neglected and have been missing……my home……people, places, and things I love.
2014 was basically a rotten year in my life…….in many ways. A change needs to be made…….in many ways. To simplify my life will be a major step in that direction.
Now I’ll take time to let this word simmer in my mind…….and life, and see where it leads.
How about you? Do you choose a word for your year? I’d love to hear about it.
Hugs and Have A Creative Day!
