So, I got to work thinking about my one little word. I thought about the things I needed to accomplish this year and the things needed to get those things accomplished and a word came to mind...FOCUS.
It seems like some point in our lives we lose focus on the important things in our lives, or we lose focus on ourselves. Whatever it may be I felt like FOCUS what the perfect word for me in 2013.
Then it was on to define my word....
The definition of FOCUS....a center of attraction, activity or attention (noun), a point of concentration (noun), to concentrate attention or effort (verb)
Then similar meanings...
Measure, standard, aim, ambition, aspiration, dream, goal, intention, objective, purpose
Without giving away too much of the class the first assignment was to sit down and write out 12 "intentions" with our word. This did take me two days to really sit down and really FOCUS on what I wanted to FOCUS on for the year. That makes sense, right?
- FOCUS on God
- FOCUS on a Budget
- FOCUS on Me
- FOCUS on Staying Organized
- FOCUS on Family
- FOCUS on Friends
- FOCUS on a Goal
- FOCUS on Fitness
- FOCUS on Staying on Track
- FOCUS on the Little Things
- FOCUS on What's Important
- FOCUS on Fun
I won't go into my reasoning for each "intention", but I will say that halfway through January and I already feel more focused and am really into this project. I also love that it is going into a scrapbook that I can look at and reflect on through the year and years to come. I look forward to keeping on this journey and doing this again next year.

I love this little journal on Etsy and just embellished it with my word and a few stars.
