What word did you select to be your travelling companion in 2013? What gifts
did this word bring?What word will you choose to guide you
through 2014? What do you hope it will bring into your life?
I have ben choosing a word for the year for several years now. Rather than make a list of resolutions which usually don't get fulfilled, choosing a word gives a focus for the year.
I have had believe, Carpe diem and last year "JOY".
I have worked through Ali Edwards' "One Word" course and enjoyed it. I now use parts of it to help me focus on the word.
Joy was an excellent word for last year as I really did need that extra help to see joy all around. I created more, using the word in quotes to focus on it.
After visiting other blogs and evaluating what words would be a good fit for 2014, the word EMBRACE just felt right.
There are so many things that can be embraced:
One person I discovered, chose a different thing to embrace each month. What a great idea. I hope to do something similar.
I will make a canvas for my word and will share it at the end of the month.
Tonight (17th) is the full Cold Moon and I created a dreamboard, something I have been doing for several years. Because of issues with using magazine pictures, I won't be sharing it but I encourage you to try it. It helps you to look forward to the coming month and dream. (Jamie Ridler holds a dreamboard group each month.)
