This post is part of the One Little Word Blog Hop where members of Ali Edwards’ OLW class share their monthly assignments or something about their word. Each month, on the 1st of the month, I’ll participate and then give you a link to the next in line (see the full list of participants at the end of this post).
This month, our One Little Word assignment was simple. Take a photo of myself and add some words. We are allowing ourselves to take a breath. It’s perfect really… I have been hurling myself ahead so quickly these
days past few years and I am soooo ready for a respite. Now that my daughter is in preschool for longer than five minutes a day, I can have some “me time.” (Enter singing angels here.)
I chose this picture that I took with my iPhone of me with my daughter because I was mindful of her youth and her creativity… just being in the moment and enjoying her closeness.
Ali says, “We spend a lot of time getting down on ourselves for whatever it is we haven’t done, haven’t kept up with, etc. This month I’m inviting you to let go of that – at least for a day – and accept yourself for where you are and all that you’ve done and all that you are.” How lovely is that? I don’t really do it very well, but I can try!

I’m so glad to be part of this blog hop! Some of the artwork these ladies do is just incredible! Now, hop along to visit Carolina for the next OLW post. She (and each thereafter) will send you on down the list from there until you’ve seen them all. The rest of the participants are listed below. I encourage you to visit every blog for more creative fun.
You can read other posts related to my OLW here. I look forward to visiting again with you on Wednesday. Enjoy your weekend!
