No, it's not a Harry Potter reference! It's actually an acronym for "One Little Word", which I was inspired to write about after reading Liz's "OWL" in her blog, Perfect Chaos

After reading her post, I started thinking what my one little word would be for 2011. I don't make resolutions and, sometimes, I'm even afraid to set goals, as the two are often synonymous for me. But I really thought about this and today while I was showering I thought of my past go getter attitude, my drive, my MOTIVATION.

So for 2011 my goal is to become motivated. I don't know where or how I lost my motivation but I have a few theories.  Maybe I got lazy because my current relationship is a lot easier and more loving than my last, but every relationship needs constant work, even the good ones. So I need to motivate myself to give 100% instead of 90%. I need to focus on motivating myself in not only pushing myself to get everyday, mundane activities done, but also to achieve friendships and connections in my state. I need to motivate myself to get to church and find myself spiritually instead of pushing it off.
I realize that I'm still going to have those lazy tendencies but I want them to be few and far between instead of almost daily. I usually give up when the going gets tough because it's easier to give up then keep going. As I type and re-read this I'm panicked because it looks like a tall order for 2011 but I'll take it a day at a time, start slowly and hopefully have achieved where I want to be by the end! I wish everyone good luck for those with goals and resolutions for 2011!

Motivation is a GREAT word, Krystle! One I could definitely apply to myself as well. This year brings big changes for you with your new house (and wedding?) and all. Once you are settled in, making friends and finding a church will be a breeze.
