One of the things I really like about the One Little Word project is the way it combines multiple "channels" to explore your chosen word each year. Journaling. Photography. Art projects. Thinking. Doing. All rolled into . . . One Little Word.
Each month, there is a "prompt" -- setting up ways to think about your word for the month. There is usually a journaling exercise and typically some sort of creative project to go along with it. If you follow all the prompts, and do all the projects (which are provided in a very step-by-step process, making them do-able for anyone), you end up with a lovely scrapbook at the end of the year.
But, at some point along the way - usually about 3 or 4 months in, I always abandon the projects! I DO the prompts -- I usually journal the heck out of the prompts! -- but I stop when I get to the step-by-step projects.
This year, I decided I'd just START the One Little World year . . . off the grid. I didn't even pretend to want to make the lovely scrapbook. I just decided to use my existing journal, and let my own creative spirit carry me. (Which is totally encouraged by the Ali Edwards, the One Little Word creator.)
So this year, in the midst of my ongoing journal, I have random One Little Word pages sprinkled about.*
So far, this is working for me! (I always do kind of like making my own way best.)
* The pages, above, represent my own version of the February prompt -- about setting actions related to your word.
