Remember This – Week 41

Before the year is out, I wanted to make sure to share some of my One Little Word assignments from this past year. Here is the one from all the way back to March. This assignment was to do a vision board. We had a similar one last year and I used Pinterest back then to create my own and I loved the results, so when we had it again this year, I decided to do it exactly the same way.

I just love the way these turn out and I print them out to glue them into my notebooks and I also make them the background of my computers. And then when the year turns over and I make a new one, the old one becomes a screen saver.

Listen with Intent – Week 46

Another way of listening kindly, for me, is obliging. Being willing to do what the other person wants. My kids often want to come talk to me and many times, i am in the middle of something and my instinct is to tell them to come back later. But this week is all about obliging them. Putting them first. Listening to them when they would like me to.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

Today I Know – Week 45

This week’s inspiration comes from this pin. I used watercolors only. It’s nowhere as magnificent as the original but i still like it. Paperfashion is one of my heros, her work is always always magnificent and dreamy.

prompt says: today i know that kindness from others feels.

Listen with Intent – Week 45

For this week’s intention I decided to go with support. I believe a big part of being kind is being supportive, allowing others to be who they are and supporting them instead of listening with any agenda of my own. To me, this means asking questions, being positive, and genuinely listening.

Here’s the pin where I got the lettering..

Listen with Intent – Week 44

A new month is a new intention, for November I picked Listen Kindly. I want to focus on kindness. I think, at the end of the day, kindness is all that matters. And I am always working to be kinder, more patient, gentler with myself and with others. With my husband. With my kids. This feels like one of those things I will never fully achieve. Something I could always be working on. And I guess this month is as good a start as any. Here’s to some kind listening in November!
