Reflecting On Our Words - May

Annemarie, AVT Coach, Julie, Roban and I began our "reflecting on our words for the year" road trip in January and continued in February and March and April.

We got our inspiration about focusing on a WORD for the year from Caroline at The Zen in You. Wonder on over to her place and she will enlighten you further about this wonderful WORD project.

AVT Coach suggested for our joint post this month we:

"Make a collage. You take a canvas and you put photos, words, symbols, whatever you want on it. I've been wanting to make one for my office. It could be small. Anyway, then we would take a picture of it and post it one month".

Brilliant idea we all thought!

Annemarie's word is DISCIPLINE

Roban words are JOY and FAITH

AVT Coach's word is ABUNDANCE

"May is a month full of life. Graduations, Weddings, Concerts, Recitals, and Championships. Bike races, Running races, and Horse races. It is a month in Oklahoma for rain storms and twisters. You have to keep your sneakers on to catch up with the action.
May is also "Better Speech and Hearing Month". I'd like to think of it as "Better Encouraging and Listening Month". My blog posts have been absent but my life has been full. I am truly creating abundance one step at a time. Blessing to you as we move into June. What will the next month bring?" AVTCOACH

Julie's word is EXCELLENCE

My word is BALANCE and I have added two new words for the year (DESIRE and PERSISTENCE)...focusing on Balance alone was not enough to get me motivated!!!

Jesse over at Living Infinitely was the inspiration for my adding the words Desire and Persistence to focus on for the rest of the year.

This is what I wrote as a comment on his post:

Jesse you have written this post very clearly and concisely. I get it! And I need to remember it.
When my goal becomes too difficult it is easy to stop caring, stop trusting and stop wanting it.
I must learn to cultivate an attitude (build a stronger fire) to stay in touch with my desires and remember persistence will pay off and achieve the outcome.

Oh my these collages are so beautiful and inspiring! Each one has inspired me today. Thank you for sharing this each month!

Thank you for your constant encouragment. I do love your comment to Jesse. It is not easy keeping a goal over time. This project is keeping me focused and reminding me of the gifts of blogging! You are wonderful!

This is a great idea and if I had enough discipline and balance I could pool my abundant resources to produce something of excellence and reveal my joy and faith!
No. I'll have to settle on another word - say, organize, or prioritize.

(just havin' fun with ya!)

I am a lover of words, their origins, the way they sound on my tongue, the pictures they conjure when I write them or read them.

Words are endlessly inspiring, I think.

Have a wonderful day!

WoW those collages are great! I love the different approaches. I'm beginning to feel I have chosen a rather flat word for the year - Adventure. A bit 2-D, and maybe I'm exhausted just thinking about it (!)
