The March Slice of Life Story Challenge –  An Online Writing Experience Hosted by The Two Writing Teachers

It’s here. The day I’ve been looking forward to – not just an ordinary day. It’s my birthday. I’ve been excited but I don’t know why. It seems that the older I get, the less big a deal my birthday becomes. I’m not complaining. I’m just stating my observation out loud. It’s my birthday today, but the world keeps going. Paul is working. The girls have practice – all day. No one is home, except me. I don’t want to spend the day inside by myself so I venture out. It’s cold and rainy. It doesn’t even seem like a birthday day. I do some errands. I get what I need. Does anyone know that it’s my birthday? Does it show? Should I tell someone? No. Definitely not. It’s just an ordinary day to everyone else. Only I know that today is different. Until I get home. They are waiting for me. They wish me a happy birthday. They have made me birthday cards. There are balloons attached to my favorite candy bar (bought with B’s own money!). We share stories about our day. It’s not just an ordinary day. It’s my birthday!

To honor this day; March 29~ I’ve chosen to share my birthday wishes for the coming year:

To live my life with purpose and passion
To express my gratitude for all things, no matter how big or small
To simplify my heart, my home, my life
To share my love for reading and books
To exercise my mind (more books!) and body (walking regularly!)
To profess my love for Paul, B, and E– every day!

I cannot wait to see where this journey of my life takes me in this next year.

I chose my one little word on Day 19 of the #SOL15 Challenge. It is now Day 27. When I chose my one little word, I was leaving for vacation the next day. I didn’t have a chance to act on this big decision or to put my plan into place. Well, I’m almost home. I’ve been doing some thinking during my time away. I’m excited to get going! (After all, it’s almost April.)

Simplicity is

Important to

Make space and find

Purpose.

Less

Is better

For living well.

Yes, I can!

my one little word
2015

As I’ve been reading past slices, I’ve read some about choosing one little word for the year. A quick search brought me to Ali Edwards’ website where I read about the one little word project.

 This is what I learned from Ali:

“A single word can be a powerful thing.
It can be a ripple in the pond that changes everything.”

I have chosen one little word to think about and reflect on daily. I am hoping that this one little word becomes a part of my life and a part of me. I chose this one little word because I feel I need this one little word in my life to create balance.

My Journey (thanks, Ali and Michelle):

  1. Invite this one little word into my life.
  2. Make this one little word visible.
  3. Let this one little word speak to me.
  4. Follow this one little word where it leads me.
  5. Celebrate the journey I’m on with this one little word.
