Word for the New Year
January 4th, 2012
Have you chosen a word for the year? Something to focus on? I'm not much of a resolution person, but I do like choosing a word to focus on. It's been one of my practices for the last few years. One year, I chose the word Leap, another year was Commit, last year was Metamorphosis. Each year, I make some kind of art to go along with my word and hang it where I can see, where it can serve as a reminder as the months pass by.
This year, I pondered for a long time before choosing the word Love. I want to remember to love all the little and big moments throughout the year, to infuse all I do with love, to send love out to those I meet, and to put love into what I do. And I want to also remember to love myself because this being a new mommy thing is hard work!
Do you have a word for the year or some other ritual for beginning a new year?
If you're looking for another way to dive into a new year, I highly recommend Goddess Leonie's 2012 workbook!
