A few years ago, my mother introduced me to the concept of coming up with "One Little Word". It's a project in the scrap booking community started by Ali Edwards, where you come up with a word for the year. In her words: "a word to focus on, to live with, to investigate, to write about, to craft with, and to reflect upon as I go about my daily life."
Although I don't scrapbook, for me it's a practice in intentions, mindfulness, manifestation. A simple premise, but with big results.
