One Little Word® 2019 | The Reading Of The Words

One Little Word® for 2019 is underway. 

One of the traditions surrounding this project is an annual reading of the words. Thank you to those of you who shared your word on my recent blog post. This list obviously doesn't include all people participating in this project this year, but it's a lovely list of words. In past years I have invited my friend Liz Lamoreux to record herself reading this words. This year, as I was typing up the list, I felt the desire to read the list myself. I told Liz that I felt like I wanted to feel the words in my mouth this year. 

Listen to me read the words here.

There is definitely still time to jump into my One Little Word® workshop for 2019. Get all the details about this year long workshop and join the community in making your word visible. We also have products to support you in documenting your journey with your word here

The word between my toes above is from my friend Colleen Attara. I've been so thankful for her support of this project over the years and love the intention and kindness she brings to this community. If you are interested in something in my handwriting we also offer custom acrylic wordsas well as a couple necklace options

Again, thank you for being part of this community. If you don't see your word listed below please feel free to share it in the comments.

    I had taken your first class in 2011. The following years I chose a word, but didn't "work/ live" with word.
    Now I will take the class again - to make some changes in my STORY!
    I am excited to be part of the journey again!

    My word is Mend. I unexpectedly lost my 28-year old son in April. This past year has been very difficult. I am hoping to {mend} my soul and try to be a better mom to my two teenage daughters. I struggled to get through OLW last year, but it gave me something to focus on every month rather than my grief.

    Lots of great words listed! Mine word is "Blessed". 2018 was a year filled with health struggles, much stress, feelings of depression, and financial fraud (a so-called friend did this to us). In 2019 I want to rise above it all, get my sparkle back, look for joy in spite of the circumstances. Concentrate on the blessings in life. Be blessed instead of stressed!

    I chose 'tolerate' for my word first OLW venture. I feel it is important for me as I finally start to feel settled after moving UK-US and as my children fully immerse themselves in their teenage years. I hope in return for my efforts I become more tolerable to others! :D
    I hope to have so much fun doing this and got my package this morning. Yay! (Also, I think tolerate would look super in Ali's handwriting...) ;)

    My word for 2019 is RESOLUTE... I can't wait to listen to your reading of the words. I'm a BIG fan of Liz, but think it will be a treat to hear you this year.

    Hi Ali. My word for this year is CARE. In September my daughter got married and it was a wonderful day however how I even functioned that day I have no idea. I along with my sister had been taking care of our father for four years. He passed away three weeks after attending his most beloved first grand daughters wedding and even though he was in so much pain, he smiled, he cried, he stayed right to the end, My father had bone cancer in ten areas, endured many procedures, four operations, continuous chemo when his weakened body allowed. Through it all he was so brave and not once did he complain even when I could see him grimace in pain and his passing was a painful one not peaceful. My sister and I were the only ones with him as he passed away and I think it was so fitting as we were his daughters, his caretakers, his "daddy's girls" . I miss him so much my heart is broken. I'm crying writing this. I truly believe he hung on to see my daughter his first born grand child get married as there was a very special connection there and I can't believe he went through what he did to attend as it was six hours away in cottage country. Love. So why CARE? At times for no reason and often with bad timing thoughts of my father pop into my head. The tears start to flow and all of a sudden I thought " you really need to do something to take care of yourself now" maybe it was my dad speaking to me or me just realizing now after all these months that I have been so focused on my father for four years that I have been in a constant state of alertness ready to spring into action with the next crisis or just the hourly day to day fatigue of trying to stay so positive as I see my dad shrinking before my eyes. I had taken CARE of my father but had not taken CARE of myself. I ate poorly slept little and always felt stressed and sad so now I need to stop being a caretaker and take care of me. Mind body and soul. I know it will be a challenge as I think of my dad everyday and still feel such sorrow but somehow I have to pull myself together. I have not done anything yet with my word and don't feel creative at all but perhaps writing as I see here is what I need to do obviously. I should probably delete this message but this is my truth and my word is CARE. Thank you for listening💔

    I suggest that you should synthesize some pairs of words that are often confused which lead to misspelling for colleagues to refer.
