Default One Little Word Halfway Check-in!

How is everyone doing with their 2016 One Little Word?! We're now halfway through the year!

In case you have no idea what I'm talking abt: OLW

Has anyone made anything cool with their word? Done anything cool because their word prompted them to?

Has anyone completely forgotten that they picked a word in the first place?!

I'm one who forgot what my word was... Even looking at the thread you started back in January about One Little Word...I didn't pick one yet...


So - now I have to search the galleries and see what I did... I know I did a page... Oh - my word was mindful... yeah, I don't think I did that... I should have picked up on Organize or Lighten... that I'm focused on right now...

I did several LOs about it and since I just started a Bullet Journal I made sure I had a page about it. It's LIGHT and I love LOVE love it!

ETA... BTW, my latest page, for the Weightlifting challenge (how ironic, right?), is about it!

My OLW was Reduce. I was hoping to reduce stress, the amount of time I spend on work stuff during non-work hours, my weight, and the pressure I put on myself. (I can be a perfectionist and never know when to call something good enough and move on.)

Right now it's summer and I don't work summers, so it's going wonderfully, LOL! I used alphabet stickers to put my word on the week marker in my planner, so I see it every day as I decide how to spend my time. That's been helping--usually by this time in the year I don't even remember my word. My results have been mixed, but I'm hoping that some things I set up during the first half of the year will make it easier to keep making progress once school (work) is back in session.

My word is choose and so far it's going ok. I'm a little behind at the prompts in Ali's class, but I'm making myself notes so I can catch up later in the year.

We're heading into a big transition next week (DH just retired from the USAF, so we're taking a month-long trip, moving halfway across the country, and praying he finds a job when we get there). I'm choosing to look at this as an adventure and not freak out about all the uncertainty... Wish me luck!
