2014 OLW-One Little Word chosen!


    According to the divas over at Scrap Challenge YOUrself, One Little Word (OLW) was created by Ali Edwards and is defined as a word that you invite into your life and let it speak to YOU. You focus on and reflect upon this word as you go about your daily life. I last picked out the word 'identify' wwaaayyy back in 2011 but I see I wasn't good on that one; I still allowed myself to be lost in everyone else's needs and their definition of ME....But, it's 2014, new year, new things (I hope)  so I'm gonna jump in on Challenge # 2 at Scrap Challenge YOUrself and  try OLW again... 

am inspired by Rob Thomas' song- Little Wonders....Thought and thought and came up with "CLARITY."

clar·i·ty * NOUN
[klar-i-tee]

1.   clearness or lucidity as to perception or understanding; freedom from indistinctness or ambiguity.
2.   the state or quality of being clear or transparent to the eye; pellucidity: the clarity of pure water.
*Little Wonders sung by Rob Thomas-my personal photo **
As a close friend  said to me last year, I multitask WAYYYY too much (my own fault) and by doing that, much of  what I want for myself is being lost in translation, delivery and receipt..... Life gets to be 50 clean shades of grey in a black & white world....   2014 I'm challenging myself to have more CLARITY as to who I AM (not the daughter, wife, mom, friend-JUST ME (call me MiMi if you like) AND WHAT "I" WANT...adopting the KISS rule (Keep It Simple Silly)... maybe then, my balance and my mojo will return in a major way ...mental CLARITY...CLEAR AS CRYSTAL... not clear as mud....of course, here's my layout!
