My One Little Word

Inspired by my blog friend Sharon, who is the creative mind behind Challenge Youself, I want to make at least ONE layout every month, but I always squeeze that out last minute, well, things are changing here.... LOL!

I am entering my February layout in....





and my one little word is....

I had some trouble with the people at the Singapore Club here in Las Vegas, the issue had deeply affected me in many ways, although months have passed, I am still learning to "let it go". So this year, whenever the bad memories flash back, this is one little word I say it loud and clear to myself, JOY, I choose JOY! You know in real life, our bad experience can come back and haunt us again and again, we can't change history, we can't make bad memories vanish like it never happen before, but I sure can tell myself that when it hits me and remind me of the pain I have gone through, that I have other things in my life to look forward to, I have people (and dog) in my life that gives me JOY! That is the thing I want to hold on to forever!
