I’ve returned to one of my childhood passions this past year: memory keeping. It brings me such joy to capture and document my stories about my life and family. Finding Ali Edwards‘ content has helped me so much on this journey. She has become my memory keeping guru! Her simple and manageable approach to memory keeping keeps it fun and realistically doable. I very much enjoy her blog, workshops, and products. One of my favorite classes I took from her last year is called One Little Word.
One Little Word is a year long self-reflection memory keeping project in which you select a word that speaks to you at the beginning of the year and follow monthly prompts via videos and handouts from Ali that help you carry, nurture, and live your word throughout the course of the year. Taking this class in 2017 was quite impactful on me and truly shaped my experience of the year. I think it’s common for many of us to set an intention in January, but how often do we actively connect with it on a regular basis for the whole year? One Little Word kept me connected to my intention in 2017 and I can’t wait to jump in again with a new word for 2018. I thought I would share more about my experience with this project in the hopes that it might inspire those who are interested to take the leap.
In this video I flip through my 2017 album, show you the products I purchased for this year, and talk about my 2018 prep:
I hope you enjoyed this look at my 2017 One Little Word album and my thoughts about the project. I’d love to know what word you’ve chosen for the year if you’re participating in One Little Word or something similar. Please leave a comment if you feel comfortable sharing!
