So, a great big welcome to all visitors today...the new and the faithful!
Today, I am a participant in the April Blog Hop for fellow students of the One Little Word online class instructed by Ali Edwards at Big Picture Classes. Each month, we are given an assignment that has something to do with the word that we have chosen for the year 2011. For the month of March, our assignment was to TAKE ACTION with our word and see what we could do!
My word is REALIZE...as in, make it happen, accomplish, see it through, get it done! I have many ideas and inspirations, but seem to have trouble making them happen. This class has been instrumental already in helping me to 'get some of my projects done'!
If you are interested, here are the previous month's assignments that I have completed...
Because my OLW already implies taking action, I have been busy doing just that! However, what was helpful this month, was Ali asking us to focus on one particular area for the entire month. For a few years now, I have had the itch to write a book. After teaching elementary school for most of my career, I can safely say that I have read my fair share of children's books. All that reading put the dream in my heart to write my own book. This month, I set some personal goals in regards to my writing and was pleased with the progress that I have made.
Here is the opening page for March...
A close-up of my Action Plan...
A little bit about how I executed the Action Plan...
I really feel like taking this One Little Word is making a difference for me. I can't say what it is exactly, but I seem to be finding the time to work on all of these things on my list that I could never complete before. Even as I start, I can hear myself say, Just Do It... Make It Happen... Realize It!
