Christine Kane gave me the great idea last year to choose a word and focus on it for the year....
The word I choose was Joy- I wanted to be able to make choices in my life with Joy in mind. I wanted Joy to be a key motivator for my choices.
That word made my relationship with my husband stronger, my connection and partnership with my daughter even stronger, and made me feel like a *better* person on a variety of levels....
And yet........ I think that this year's word will unleash a Joy that i've yet to experience..... :P
This year my word - the word that I want to hold in my mind throughout each moment- the word I want to guide each action- is Trust.
I will trust that each moment is as it should be. This will take some "work"- i'm thinking the Byron Katie variety. :) (http://www.thework.com/thework.asp)
I will stay in *my* business. (http://www.byronkatie.com/2006/09/whose_business_are_you_minding.htm)
I will let go of my need to control. I will release worry....fear....judgment.... all those things that can get in the way of Joy.
I will *Trust*.
So, begone pesky records playing in my head.... telling me to worry about this, to try to control that..... BYE BYE!!!!!
Hello Authentic Joy!
