I had been thinking about a post I read yesterday on Affirmart by Sema about her Power Words. The whole idea of using words to guide you has resonated with me for some time. I started this year with "BELIEVE" as my one word intention for 2009.
Sema has been working through the alphabet and choosing a word for the week as an affirmation.
I have been doing the ABC Wednesday challenge and really enjoying it. There the focus is more on photos and then describing what you have chosen.
I realized last night that we are about half way through the year, with just less than 26 weeks til 2010.
As I am working through "The Artist's Way" through the On the Wing ning group, I am realizing that belief in one's self and one's art is paramount. That it is the process of creating, of showing up on the page that matters - not the end result.
Then this morning Violette, who created the Bliss Journal, sent a set of Creative Play cards to download and use. Talk about synchronicity. These small, colourful action words act like affirmations as well.
So I am starting my own challenge to create my own 26 affirmation cards, that will help me focus each week on an action I need to take.
I will use the first three letters to set the overall tone for the second half of this year. All else will develop from these 3 actions:
I will post Sundays, from now on, as I journey through the 12 weeks of "The Artist's Way" and other positive books.
This is Wishcast Wednesday and I realize that by creating my affirmations I am also making a statement. I wish that my ABC's of Act-Believe-Create will carry me through , not only the rest of 2009 but throughout my life, and as I internalize them my creativity will grow.
