One Little Word|Captured|Week 1

I am so excited about this challenge set forth by Jill Conyers at Life As I See It. This explains the One Little Word Captured project. I will try to post a picture every Saturday to represent my JOURNEY this year:
"What is One Little Word Captured?
Join me beginning in January for 52 weeks of a photographic interpretation of your word for 2011. A goal or intention. A deliberate approach. A way to share and encourage each other throught the year."

You can participate too! Just click on the link above or the button in my sidebar that says One Little Word Captured.

It is my hope that I can learn to RELAX on my JOURNEY this year. As I mentioned in my last post, I usually worry more about the destination and details. I find myself constantly tense, worried about everybody else. Is everyone else happy? Are they entertained? Do they need something? I wonder how they feel?

I know these are good things, but I'm also learning that I need to enjoy life. I find myself missing out on a lot. I have a hard time remembering the details about special events in my life and I know it's because I am not allowing myself to really enjoy the moment. Everything from my graduations and wedding, to the births of my children... It may be a control issue or it may be me trying to make sure that things are perfect. Whatever it is - it's hindered me from really loving life. I hope that this picture will remind me that I want to relax and enjoy each moment.


  1. Beautiful word and a great picture! Hope you can relax this year!

  2. Journey is a beautiful word - I hope you get to thoroughly enjoy yours this year!

  3. I love it! I so often get caught up in the details that I forget to relax and enjoy it all. I look forward to seeing where your word takes you this year.

    Thank you for joining the challenge :)

  4. I'm so glad you're joining in Sherry! Your word is perfect - and the complete opposite of mine :) I'm looking forward to your journey.

  5. I love your word. I almost chose relax as my word but then decided to focus on enjoying the moment no matter what I am doing, so my word is enjoy.
    Look forward to seeing more of your photos throughout the year.
