What to Do With Your Word

| written by Alece Ronzino | 0 comments

Mandy Steward — AKA @messycanvas — has bravely chosen vulnerable as her word for the year. (Seriously. Brave.)

And she wrote an amazing post on what do with your word once you choose it.


{here’s an excerpt from her post…}

Look for the word everywhere. I find it shows up a lot when I’m on the lookout for it. Kind of like when you buy a new car and then all of a sudden you see lots of people driving the type of car you have. The word will show up in books, movies, music, conversation.

Write your word. A lot. Paint it. Ink it. Color pencil it. Crayon it. Type it. Spell it out with those plastic colorful alphabet magnets. Write it in dust. Write it on a dry erase board or a chalkboard. Write it on your dirty car. Spell it with spaghetti noodles. Cut out the letters from a magazine and collage it. Just keep writing it.

Make lists of what you want the word to bring out in you. Why is the word is so important to you? What sort of self-love will that word give you? Make lots of lists. Cast vision so you can step into the word fully.

Bring the word up in conversation. Let friends and family know it’s your word. In doing so, they’ll keep an eye out for the word as well and give you further insight and research into your word.

Make sure you read her entire post. You don’t want to miss all the great suggestions for how you can personalize this 365-day journey…

(Well, actually, since it’s a leap year, it’s a 366-day journey…but hey!)
