One Little Word 2012: Calm

Almost the last day of January and I finally deal with my One Little Word prompt for this month!

I've chosen the word 'Calm' this year as it was a word that kept popping into my mind. In the same way that I chose Balance as my word for last year (you can read about that here), I continue to be incredibly busy and sometimes it feels that inviting some Calm into my life would be very useful.

For me, this encompasses the need to find ways to relax and unwind as well as responding carefully to stressful situations including dealing with two young children.

I've also tagged the word 'patience' onto this year as it seems to go hand in hand with my OLW. As I explained in the last post, our current housing situation is far from ideal and the house doesn't always lend itself to being calm- after all, it's hard to feel like that if you're worrying about your 2 year old scribbling on the wall or living half out of boxes! I do feel though, that I need to practice calm and patience in waiting our time out whilst we find a new home.

I really enjoyed embracing my OLW last year and can't wait to see what possibilities this years word will open up for me this year.
