Back to My One Little Word - Embrace

I plunged into the One Little Word...

First assignment...think about how you will focus on your word each month...

Again, my word for 2013 is embrace.

One Little Word - Embrace

January - My focus is going to be on the variety of meanings of embrace and ponder how I can implement them in this coming year.

February - My focus is on embracing my health (emotional, physical, spiritual, mental)

March - My focus is on embracing my faith.  March is also the month of Easter.

April - My focus is on embracing others:  my husband, my children, my grandchildren, my friends, strangers, patients/families, co-workers, friends, neighbors.

May - My focus is on embracing who I am.  This process has already started evolving...more to come.

June - My focus is on embracing moments, although I'm thinking about changing it to "the ordinary."

One LIttle Word - Embrace 2013

July - My focus is on embracing change.  Change is hard, necessary, and inevitable.

August - My focus is on embracing difficulty...the key to growth.

September - My focus is on embracing discipline, in all areas, but my first thought was on spiritual disciplines.

October - My focus is on embracing gratitude...with extra intention.

November - My focus is on embracing my creativity.  To see it as not a hobby or luxury, but a necessity for me to breathe.

December - My focus is on embracing the work required in creativity - to show up - as well as the work that I do as my calling, as well as all the mundane tasks and responsibilities we all have as part of life.

What a year it will be...regardless...I will embrace 2013!


  1. hi dense...what a great OLW and i love your monthly intentions. I have all of my done in my i just need to find the time to create my page!

  2. These are wonderful Denise. I am almost done with mine. I have all the words just need to finish the design and layout. Doing a physical album is taking some time, but my work flow is to work on it for a while, then walk away for a while then come back and tinker with it some more. I have always worked that way.

  3. Great word for 2013and beautiful digital pages!

  4. Great job Denise. Love your word. I am with Nancy have all my intentions just need to get to the art.
