One of the things I do once I choose my one little word for the year is to do a search on Etsy for word-related items. It gives me some crafty inspiration and often some new insight into my word. This year, I saw this piece of wood art and although I could have whipped one up for myself, I am trying to restrain myself from craftiness until my major project is done. So I ordered it and was happy to see that it was from a Canadian artist. I have it near my workspace at home and it is a good reminder to me that we can choose our attitudes and choose how we view the word.
So sometimes when there is a lot of drama going on or I am feeling overwhelmed or down on myself, I have to train my brain to make a choice. To find the joy around me or from within and choose that instead.
