Hello, 2023! Let's SHINE!
I'm not much for resolutions. I pause to reflect often in the year to reset. I'm happy to change direction or dig a little deeper most any time of year. One practice I have enjoyed at the beginning of each year is to pick a word to be my guide. Some years have been better than others, for sure. Life has a way of making its own decisions. Am I right?
Every year, to begin the process, I make a list of possible words to help step into the new year. I have selected a word or phrase for a little over ten years now. Sometimes words find me; sometimes I find them. I've had the most success with words that give me space and add a little adventure to life.
I'm in a new season of life and honestly, so far, it's one of my favorites. Last year, I chose the word RIPPLE and learned a lot about the rocks in my life. Now that I have a clear understanding of those rocks, it's time to SHINE. I wanted a word that brought the JOY I found in 2021 with the discovery of 2014 and the rocks I discovered in 2022. SHINE just seemed the way to go next.
Wishing each of you health, happiness, and plenty of JOY in the year to come.
Let your light SHINE!
