This is our fifth year of coming together to share our hopefulness for what’s coming up in the new year. I think sharing helps us clarify our intentions and solidify our resolve. Sharing makes it real.
Last year I chose the word COMPLETE and, I gotta tell ya, it was a disaster. My word so often is. Which just goes to show that the intention really is so important, regardless of the outcome. Intention = hopefulness, and that’s a very nice way to live.
But still, I completed nothing last year. Not a single thing. I started lots of things. I promised lots of things. I thought about lots of things. But actual completion? Not so much. I did manage to bust a long term habit, though… so that’s a sort-of completion – I’ll take it.
I had a good year, though. It was a year filled with a certain contentment, despite a lot of change and challenges. Lots of ‘c’ words there, none of which is ‘complete’. But no matter.
This year, I’m choosing another ‘c’ word to guide me:
I’m quite fixated on this word in all aspects of life: clean eating, clean living, clean house. I feel like I need to sweep out some musty mind-cobwebs and clean is going to help me along with that.
What word will you choose to guide you in 2016?
