ACTIVE – my one little word for 2015

When I replaced my new year’s resolutions with one little word years ago I also put it on paper to establish my commitment.
I scrapbook a page about it ‘cuz  a} it’s way more fun than just writing about it and  b} it’s what I was into when I started this.
ACTIVE is my word for 2015.
Although I had fun taking all the pictures and had myself cracking up while my kids thought I was absolutely crazy…
And you don’t realize how hard it is to capture the perfect shot of yourself…
Until you realize there is no such thing as the perfect shot & you just go with it…
But the most important part is the journaling.
 It’s what I use to teach and it’s what I still preach.
The pictures evoke a visual memory and the embellishments are fun, but the journaling truly tells the story and lets you get inside the narrator’s head.
This year I plan to read my ACTIVE layout each and every month.
This way I can stay true to myself.
How do you hold yourself accountable for your resolution, one little word or whatever philosphy you wish to abide by?

    That’s a great word! My OLW for 2015 is see. Still trying that one out. I did sign up for Ali Edwards OLW class–I need the monthly reminder to myself. Your blog looks great and I’ve been enjoying reading all your decor posts. As part of my OLW, I want to make time to see old friends…I would love to get together for lunch sometime!
