Inspiring Words (pt. 2)

     Yesterday, I blogged about Ali Edwards' exercise of choosing an inspiring word for each year.  I featured art I created for my 2008 word "flow" and my 2009 word "accomplish."  I mentioned that I had made a series of ATC's for my 2007 word, "open."  I'm featuring a variety of them today.
     Choosing the word "open" really helped me in 2007 to be open to and try a variety of things without fear of failure.  I turned to my 2009 word "accomplish" many times when I felt like procrastinating instead of finishing something.  I don't think "flow" really worked for me, but two out of three isn't bad!

I'm still thinking on this one.....as usual your ATCs are inspiring.

I finally chose a word just the other day for this year: intention. I'm hoping it will help me stick to the things I want to do this year. I love your ATCs--especially the one with the blue door.

I am always excited to read different blogs to see everyone's take on Ali's word :) I have chosen 'bliss' because I want to find it in as many things as I can this year :)

When you really think about all of the possibilities of one word it can be powerful and inpsiring - like you, some words have worked and others haven't.
