2010 - One Little Word: Half-Full

For the past few years, I've participated vicariously, and with different levels of involvement, a project known as One Little Word. 

Created in 2007 by Ali Edwards, a digital/paper/hybrid scrapbooker, author and life artist, the project is quite simple.

Each year, Edwards decides on a word (or in some case words) that she is going focus on during the year.

Ultmately, the word you choose (or chooses you) has the potential of making an impact upon your life.

Since 2007, I've had six words impact my life. Typically I pick a word in January, that begins to shape my year. Then at some point, usually in the summer or early fall, a second word begins to emerge in my subconsious.

There's no scientific pattern or method, but these are the words that have impacted my world in the last three years.

This past year, as a reward to myself (thanks to lots of babysitting/dogsitting hours)

My words to date include:
2007 - Wonder & Seek
2008 - Simplicity and Joy
2009 - Dream & Hope
2010 - Half-Full & (do be determined)

So take a look at the glass pictured here. Is it half full or half empty? How you answer that question can make a world of difference.
