|which way do we go???|
Sometimes the word leads to great discoveries, sometimes to growth, mostly to awareness.
Life is busy, often hectic, and one must really try to remain driven by one's values.
what will my word for 2020 be? at first I thought it was 'See' what's here, see what is real, see beauty in the day to day, see things clearly, see my goals and see others.
Have you ever done something by rote, and not be in the moment at all? Sometimes surprised you drove all the way home without seeing the road? Eaten dinner without tasting it? Petted the dog/cat without feeling it.
I want a word that makes me more mindful. I hope the word helps me focus instead of having worries and intrusive thoughts swirling around interrupting living. I am realistic, if something is wrong or unattractive I acknowledge that as real but don't always let that stop me. I am not one to put on rose colored glasses so I can't see the way things are, I see them and still love.
I hope to see more beauty this year.
To see new places.
To see beyond the present.
to see what I want to paint, really see it for edges, shadows, highlights
To see the people that come into my life even for a moment
To notice and acknowledge.
I do know... you see what you look for.
but "SEE" while valuable, doesn't resonate with me. so I went to a site that tried to help one choose a word, and I saw these: connect, embrace, learn, hope, self-acceptance, courage.
In their way, they all resonate but...
Last year my word was explore, and I let fears get in the way of fully using the word. I'm only human after all. Perfectly imperfect.
so while I wait for a word to surface:
I'd like to :
join a guild... one I've not done before like bead makers, writers, or doll makers
see and note the good things my husband does for us
read a lot
use my resources without concern about using them up
see people that could become friends, which means risk and effort
drink more water
do what I can to encourage Americans to respect each other again, even if we disagree, there must be acceptance of differences, cooperation, and respect. Please, start building bridges and stop wanting walls.
I joined a free workshop at this site, to help me discover a word for the year... I like the spiritual but respectful content a lot: https://abbeyofthearts.com/blog/2019/11/29/give-me-a-word-2020/
