One Word Prints (plus a coupon code!)

| written by Alissa Smith | 0 comments

This is the fourth year in a row that I have chosen a word for the year.

Last year my word was FEARLESS. And that word and attitude saw me through one of the most daring and difficult years of my life. I rebranded my small business. My husband and I and our two small kids moved across the country from Denver, Colorado to Columbus, Ohio. I spent the last few weeks of my grandmother’s life at her side and even though it was uncomfortable and scary and new, I chose to be fearless and present through it.

My word this year is SLOW.

I know that’s not a very exciting or interesting word, but I really want to slow down this year and focus. I want more nights in and less nights out. I want more homecooked meals and less takeout. I want to spend afternoons on the floor surrounded by legos. I want whole weekends with nothing on the to do list.

At the end of 2012 (my first year choosing a word) I found myself kind of disappointed. I hadn’t thought of my word for the year very much, and I hadn’t seen it impact my life. So in 2013 I made myself a simple print of my One Word and hung it above my dresser. Every day I looked at it while I was getting ready and the consistent reminder was so helpful and encouraging. Reading my word every day helped me be really intentional.

Since then I have offered One Word prints in my print shop, Noble & Grey, each January for anyone else who might need a little reminder or encouragement. And this year I also have calendars featuring your One Word.

The (fully customizable!) prints & calendars are only available until the end of January, so please head on over to the shop and choose one to make your One Word a daily part of your life.

(And be sure to use the coupon code ONEWORD365 at checkout for FREE SHIPPING!)
