Welcome 2013! I am so happy that you are here & I’m ready for something new.
I am not a big resolution person. In my experience, resolutions hold up for a while, ultimately fail, and leave me feeling worse than I started off (I feel the same way about diets by the way). For me, resolutions have always come from a place of not liking myself, specifically relating to weight and body image.
Instead of resolving to do or not do something, I prefer to choose a word to help guide me through the year. A word as an intention, a gentle reminder of something to open myself up to.
The answer came, a whisper on this breeze: Possibility
Possibility. I like this! I want more of this feeling in my life.
Possibility is expansiveness. It is a child who wakes up in a joyous mood, singing to himself and lifting up the whole family as he dances around the house. It is the view of mountains in the distance, seen from the top of a ski lift right before the first run of the day. Possibility is the space that opens in your heart when you are laughing with a friend.
I am not my job
I am not the place where I live
I am not how I look to others
I am love manifest
I am continually reborn
I am making my dreams come true
The whole guiding word thing is quite the rage right now, so here are a few other bloggers who have shared a word for 2013.
