I signed up again for Ali Edwards's One Little Word class. Even when prompts for some months go unfinished, I find her monthly lessons to be a worthwhile reminder to reflect and to live my word. I have been gathering fodder for the first month's prompt...
A list of Words:
Some definitions of my One Little Word for 2016:
· a source of energy
· a thing that sustains or inflames passion, argument, or other emotion or activity
· supply or power with fuel
· cause to burn more intensely
Quotes that helped me come up with my word:
“Be with those who help your being.” -RUMI (line from a poem)
“Be the right kind of hungry.” -Randall Mann (on a postcard containing advice for poets)
My intentions in adopting this word in 2016:
I want to fuel and be fueled.
I think I miss opportunities to provide fuel for others. I have more to give than I am giving. I want to do more, to be more, for others this year.
I want to be the right kind of hungry this year—to take in the things that truly fuel me physically, emotionally, creatively, and professionally. I want to surround myself with the people and things that fuel me. I want my time to matter.
