Letting go of things can be hard. So hard. It is difficult to acknowledge when things are working for you and when they aren’t. Towards the end of March and the start of April, I was really struggling. Like, I was on Struggle Street heading south. I felt like every ounce of radiance had been sapped out of me and I was just getting by each day waiting for the holidays to begin. I gave myself a pyjama day on April 5 and it was just what I needed. A day where I had nothing planned and could just rest, relax, eat well and recharge. If you haven’t had a day like that in a while, I can’t recommend it enough. I am the kind of person who needs time to themselves to think, to plan to ‘power up’ again and I don’t mind having the time alone to do that.
One of the prompts for One Little Word this month was to let go of something (or somethings) that have been holding you back from achieving your word. I found it so liberating to be able to write out my frustrations and just let them go. I felt lighter, better, more focused afterwards. The best feelings. I enlarged my current favourite photo to 8 x 6, stuck it into my album and wrote on it using a Sharpie:
The second prompt for this month was to capture your word in photos. I found this was a quick task to complete, but not nearly as fulfilling as the ‘letting go’ task. (I used a gorgeous new set of stickers from Kikki K to complete these pages. I love those coloured sticky letters!)
Do you have a word for 2014? I’d love to hear about it – leave a comment below!
