A New Kind of Link-up

I've been brainstorming for some time now about link-ups and when to start one of my own. I wanted it to be something I loved, was passionate about, and something that really encompasses what this blog is about. After reading about My One Word {you can read my posts about it here and here} and making the commitment to my one word, I've decided I want to do a link-up regarding this theme of personal growth.

As many of you may know, the word I chose to focus on this year is "become." I've decided that every week I will dedicate one post to this.

Now, here's where you come in. Each week, as I post about my journey in "becoming," I will post a question or challenge for YOU! Whether you came up with your own word this year or just want to use the link-up as a journaling session, all are welcome to participate! The idea is to get us all brainstorming, writing, sharing, learning, and growing. I've always found writing to be the easiest way for me to really get in touch with myself. Sometimes that means writing about difficult things and sometimes it means writing about things that make me really happy! You'll probably be seeing a little of both.

I've learned the hard way in life that there are certain people who want to change and certain people who don't. I, personally, believe that we should be ever-changing - constantly seeking growth and a higher potential. Otherwise, what's really the point of our existence? Unfortunately, some people say they want to change and grow but then do nothing to make those changes happen.

Let's not be like those people. Let's make the commitment and promise to ourselves to work hard toward our One Word. Every day.

As always, I'd love to hear from you regarding your One Word! Feel free to email me here or leave a comment below! Share the love and support :)

So, on Thursday, be sure to head back over here to receive your first prompt and then link-up with me every Thursday!

This is a great idea :) I've been working towards a goal of my own and it will be nice to have a way/place/theme to record my progress and ideas. Can't wait to hear what this week's idea is!

I am so glad that I stumbled on this - and I am going to think it over and hopefully I can participate tomorrow. It's really great that you are creating a linkup that has more meaning than "oh I really love this dress - but it's like $500 and I can't afford it. So now I am sad about that" You know what I am saying. I am going to check out your 'one word' posts and get inspired.
