One Little Word Blog Hop

Welcome to My Blog and the One Little Word Blog Hop! It's my first time participating.
The blog hop goes live at 8 AM PACIFIC, and as I'm on the East Coast, my post here is early. So please be patient, check out the rest of the blog hop at 8 AM PACIFIC or later.


March One Little Word {Fabulous}: Taking Action
Source
This month is about taking action, the experience, and how I feel about it. My word is Fabulous (see this post on my word). I bought two new books to spur me on, and also signed up for Belly Dancing classes through our local Community Education. My first class was on March 29th! It was awesome. Great exercise for sure. The classes are once a week through the end of  May.  The above photo is one I found on Flickr to demonstrate the vision of taking belly dancing classes. I do not expect to become a performer, just connect a bit to my inner goddess perhaps.

ASSESS: First of all, in January, I wrote down that I wanted to invite:
  • Sensation: excitement and interest - Progress: check for introducing sensation with the new belly dancing classes
  • Romance: a love story - Progress: yes, always improving and working on our marriage
  • Stories: documenting - Progress: check for keeping up with One Little Word, and other scrapbooking stories
  • Miracles: any amazing or wonderful occurrence- Progress: yes, photographing the progress of my sister's pregnancy, and daily little miracles
  • Surprises: sudden unexpected events - Progress: yes, some breakthroughs and happy events
  • Action: put in effect -  Progress: his month's theme, focusing on action since January and following through with fitness goals, belly dancing classes, and social activities
  • Magic: any extraordinary or mystical influence, charm, power, etc. - Progress: the sum of all of the above
Previous to March, I bought two books and started reading: Fabulous Friendship Festival by Sark, and Fabulous Friendships: Scrapbooking the Relationships That Make Life Fun. (see this post from February)

My newest books are: The Essentials of Fabulous and A Course in Weight Loss.
The Essentials of Fabulous: Because Whatever Doesn't Work Here Anymore
by Ellen Lubin-Shermin
A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons For Surrendering Your Weight Forever
by Marianne Williamson

I'm so glad you could join us on the blog hop! Great action items for March. When your class is over, you will have to video your routine and post that on your blog! : ) Just kidding! Enjoy those classes.

Wow there's a long list of blog hop participants! I may just drop by a few of those blogs though.

I came by from BFS, to say Hi! Love your post about inspiration and achieving things. I think you're brave to join a belly dancing class... not sure I would have the courage! I hope you have a wonderful time and really enjoy learning your dance.

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog!

What an amazing photo and post. I have always wanted to take a Belly Dancing Class. What an encouragement. I also toyed with doing one littel word but felt I didn't have the time. However, now I have seen your post I think it is a must for next year.
