My mom has a word. At the beginning of each year, she picks a word - just one word - that will be her theme for the year.
One year, it was quiet.
Another year, it was kind.
(I'm still hoping for the "brownies" year.)
She uses that word as a guide, a push, a motivation, a teacher. She studies the word. She looks it up and writes out the definition. She posts it various places. When she's struggling, she thinks of her word and what it has to teach her in that moment. When she's happy she finds ways to connect her word and that happiness.
My mom is pretty awesome.
Anyway, I think you should try that. Maybe not for a year. Maybe just for today. Or how about for the rest of this week?What word would you pick? What single word would you choose to be your theme for the rest of this week?
Be careful. Once you choose your word, the universe will somehow align to help you learn the lesson that word has to teach. I can almost guarantee it. But don't be afraid of the teaching or the learning. It's what you need.
My word? Calm.
Why? Because things seem a little hectic right now. And I'm a bit unsettled. And I don't want to be. And I really like the word.
So, Let the storm come, I'm ready for the lesson.
What's your word? You know, I would ADORE it if you hit reply and told me. I'll probably even write you back. As calmly as I can.
Until next time
