I am participating in the Book of Days 2012 with Effy Wild at WildPreciousLife (because you know I don’t have enough to do). Effy is a lot of fun and there is a huge group of people who are participating so it should be quite exciting. I am really looking forward to seeing what everyone is doing.
Everyone is making their book covers and picking their words for the year. As some of you may know, I already have picked a word for the year – PLAY – and have a great journal all ready to go to explore that word during the coming year. But I really wanted to pick another word and another journal for this project. Something specifically to be used for the Book of Days 2012.
I kind of got bogged down with picking a new word. There are so many words that I could pick! Did I want a noun or a verb? Maybe I wanted a phrase or quote? I started thinking about words right away. A few came to mind and I analyzed each one to see what felt right. Then when I thought I had decided on a word, a few more words started appearing and saying ‘pick me pick me’. So I needed more thinking about it. Why is it so hard? (Note to self: see last year’s word – FOCUS!) Deep breath. Relax. The word will reveal itself.
And it did. So here is my word for the Book of Days. SEEK
And here is my journal cover. It may not be 100% done yet. I’ve not decided. But I like.
I hope you follow along on this journey with me. I will post regularly about my progress with the journal throughout the upcoming year. Everyone in the group is so inspiring and supportive that I can’t wait to get started. Many of them will be posting about their journey as well and I will try to add some links regularly so you can see what some of the others are up to. Or maybe you want to join the group too?

What is your word for the year?
