At Home: Setting my Word

I know people have mixed feelings about setting resolutions.  I do believe in goal setting and think it can be a powerful tool.  One of the resolution activities I engage in is picking a word of the year.

The word should sum up where I have been and where I hope to be.  I take a good amount of time considering it beacuse I will remind myself of it throughout the year.

This year I picked the word aware.

Aware of other's perspectives and feelings.
Aware of being in the moment and not being too focused.
Aware of the words I use.
Aware of the blessings in life, so that I may cherish them everyday.
Aware of the lessons that are to be learned during difficult times.

It sums up how the experiences of this past year have really opened me up, allowed me to take emotional risks.  Now I want to live fully in that new state of mind...aware.

I made a layout to help me document it.

I used the Lily Bee Persnickety collection to make this page.  Love the hexagons!!

I used a Jenni Bowlin Chipboard star and just covered it with the green paper.  I layered several of the stickers to match my theme.

Here is an official definition of my word:
1. Having knowledge or cognizance:  2. Archaic Vigilant; watchful.
a·wareness n.
Synonyms: aware, cognizant, conscious, sensible, awake, alert, watchful, vigilant
These adjectives mean mindful or heedful: Aware implies knowledge gained through one's own perceptions or by means of information

It is going to be a great year.


  1. by far... the most stunning hexagon usage I've ever seen!
