My One Little Word

Each year since I separated from my husband I pick OneLittleWord to help me grow and progress for that year. I got the idea on the website linked above.  I don’t think she knew just how profoundly her One Little Word would impact me.  Dare I say it’s one of the things in my healing arsenal that kept me alive?  Well it did.  I keep myself going, one foot in front of the other, one day at a time, one month at a time, one year at a time, and One Little Word at a time. I strongly suggest that you check out her website and see if it is something that will work for you.  You don’t even have to go full out awesome like she does.  Sometimes, it was all I could do to pick out a word and just doodle it in my planner.


These days I make a whole notebook.  Each year I get a notebook and put together talks from General Conference on my topic and study those talks through out the year in my daily scripture study.  I have recently tried to take up learning to doodle, for fun.  It makes the pages look cooler and it’s kinda fun, but don’t feel like you need to do that either.  You do you.  Find what works for you, what speaks to your heart and soul, what inspires you, and do that.

Begin by choosing a word.  You will be amazed at how great it is to just clear your mind and focus on one thing.  One Little Word!  I love it!

Here are my words each year:

Focus 2015

Forward 2016

Becoming 2017

Joy 2018

Peace 2019

Grace 2020
