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.
