OLW Blog Hop - Still Dreaming
Welcome to all visitors participating in the blog hop celebrating this month's One Little Word workshop by Ali Edwards!
This year my OLW is dream. You can read here for about my experience this year with my OLW and a bit about the OLW concept.
I have been doing the monthly prompt's along with others in the class. It is definitely a great way to keep my dreams at the forefront of my mind. In March, the assignment was to stake an action step related to our word. My action step was reading The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed To Be and Embrace Who You Are by Brene Brown. I learned some excellent strategies to let go of perfectionism. I have a nasty habit of thinking life has to be perfect, that I have to be perfect. It adds stress to my life and keeps me from achieving my dreams...so it is time for me to kick perfectionism to the curb.
This month our prompt was to write a letter to ourselves - taking stock of the OLW process, envisioning where we want to be and then setting intentions for the rest of the year. For me, the most important part was writing it down and placing it in my album. Things always seem more real, more significant when I can see it written down. Seeing my dreams for the future, for my family and for my own personal growth outlined in black on crisp white paper helps to crystallize these dreams in my mind. Just one more step to turning dreams into realities...
I haven't been great about photographing my work but I promise I will have photos to share next month. Thanks so much for visiting! Come back soon and leave a comment.
Next up in out OLW Blog Hop is Donna. Have a wonderful weekend.
