A careless word may kindle strife;
A cruel word may wreck a life,
A bitter word may hate instill;
A brutal word may smite and kill.
A gracious word may smooth the way;
A joyous word may light the day.
A timely word may level stress;
A loving word may heal and bless. — Author Unknown
Another year is passing and I am neither happy nor sad to see it go. It was a lumpy year full of wonderful connections, a renewed passion for art and some pretty large losses of awesome friends who were great balls of love.
Each year I choose a word for the brand new sparkling year. This last year my word was trust. Trust is to permit to remain or go somewhere or to do something without fear of consequences. Trust the process, trust your intuition, trust the universe. Believe, trust, let go.
Trust has served me well. I believe I have served it well too.
It was a good word and I am looking forward to choosing another word for this year, not sure what word that will be. I am trying a few out, but nothing is resonating just yet.
Believe, Courage, Harmony, Joy, Strength, Shake, Build ,Soar, Fly, Dream, Faith, Create, Bliss, Bloom, Elate, Truth, Meraki -- oh so many good words to choose from.
Whats your New Years ritual that you hold dear?
