New Year's Resolutions have never helped me do anything other than waste money on unused gym memberships and feel guilty for the remainder of the year. Not one year, not one resolution ever made me thinner, richer, healthier or happier.
A few years ago I invested in myself taking Christine Kane's Uplevel YOU™ program which included her fabulous brainchild - Word of the Year. Talk about a paradigm shift! This big little tool enabled me to forgot those stupid New Year's Resolutions F-O-R-E-V-E-R!
I began choosing my word year after year and focusing on that one word. Okay, truthfully the first year I chose 4 words and decided I would focus on 1 each quarter and as I'm sure you've guessed that didn't work so well. I'm always the rebel without a cause. Live and learn. One year, one word! I dug in and did it. I would journal about it, write goals around it, etc.
This year I added my own personal twist to my Word of the Year ritual - an art journal! Now I'm sharing this idea and process with others as I begin a new journey in teaching my One Word Art Journal Workshop. My first workshop is Saturday, April 23rd at Sparks Studio Art in Arlington, Texas. My amazing and incredibly talented sister, Jill Welch will be gracing the art studio with her live music! And bonus - after the workshop she'll also be playing a two hour show across the street from the studio at Old School Pizza and Suds.
