Word for 2014

Word for 2014

I can’t believe today is the last day of January 2014! What kinds of wonderful things are you planning to accomplish this year? Whatever you plan to do, wherever you plan to go, I wish you the best year ever.  Now I am waving my fairy godmother wand over you, so you know you have the power to go out and do it!

I have a theme this year of “More Doing, Less Thinking about Doing!” Towards the end of last year I really got sidetracked with so many things that were going on around me. I did so much more thinking about doing than the actual doing of the things I wanted to get done.  That brings me to something many of you have heard of, or may do yourself, which is select a single word for your year.  My word this year is “NOW!”

Here is a dictionary definition

Now – adverb

1. at the present time or moment

2. without further delay; immediately; at once

For me, this goes along with more doing and less thinking about doing! However, it is so much more. I want to make sure that I enjoy the moments of everyday, being in the present, being in the now. Each day I wake up to a new day, enjoy it now!  Each day I have with my family – enjoy them now. I want to be grateful for all the little things we take for granted – now. I don’t want to put things off that I want to do – so I want to work them in – now! If I can’t actually do it now, write time on the calendar to make the time.  I’m sure you get the picture!

This page was done in an online class I’m taking with Joanne Sharpe, called “Draw Your Awesome Year.” It was colored by using Inktense Pencils, which are a water soluble ink. If you like using bright colors and water – you would love these!

Have you selected a word for the year? Please share it in the comments!

  1. I love your page! I want to get some of those pencils – I have the bars but pencils would be great for more detailed pieces.

  2. Kristie, I just discovered your awecome “now” page. I envy those people with the ability to draw – stick figures is about as good as it gets for me. I guess I could probably use masks, stencils, etc. . . Would love to create an Art Journal but don’t have a clue where to start.
