My word this year is DEEP. I chose the word for several reasons which I talk about in this post. So have I thought about my word every day, not really. I wanted to be more present for it. I had a necklace made with the word deep on it. I have found that to really help keep the word front and center in my mind.
One other thing I have done before is to paint the word and hang it up where I can see i everyday. I find visuals to be very helpful for me and you might too. I had 4 tiny inexpensive canvasses that I thought I would use to spell my word. I used left over paints from my palette to begin. I thought I would do these great stylized letters making them all perfect and beautiful. What this really meant is that I ended up delaying doing the project. At the rate I was going I might be finished by December so I had to change tactics. I let go of the perfection and decided I just needed to get the word done and up on the wall. So I grabbed a copic marker and just wrote a simple letter on each canvas and tacked them on the wall. There it was simple and it was done. Do you ever find you make a big production out of something. As Artists we make everything a work of art and that is ok but sometime we just need to make it simple and functional and stop trying to make it perfect.
