What word did you select to be your travelling companion in 2012? What gifts did this word bring?
What word will you choose to guide you through 2013? What do you hope it will bring into your life?
I didn’t know about #reverb last year, so there was no word that was my traveling companion, although I think the one that made itself evident over the course of the year was “perseverance” and it’s a good one, considering that I have it tattooed on the back of my neck. The beginning of the year, being on my own and navigating a new job, coming down the wire on a DIT wedding, the stresses of my job…perseverance. Just slogging ahead and getting along the best I could.
I’m not sure what my word for 2013 is. I really, really want it to be “balance” because I believe that is what my soul is screaming for. I don’t mind work. I like earning my paycheck, but I don’t like it when my work consumes my life.
I need to focus on my health – particularly if we are contemplating a pregnancy – and the work of my soul.
The problem is that I don’t know if “balance” is what my word is really going to be in 2013; I don’t know if it’s the word that the universe is sending me or if it’s just me trying to impose my will on things. I have found that when I attempt to impose my will on the universe rather than letting the universe have its way, the universe isn’t happy about it and it is a little painful for me in the end.
I need some quiet time to meditate on what will guide this new year, but for right now I’m going with “balance”. What word are using to guide you in the new year?
