I’m excited you’re here. Even tho things were “Better” (my one little word) in 2011, I just didn’t feel my mojo clickin’. Know what I mean?
Anyway, I love new starts, and a new year has so much promise and hope. I really like that feeling of beginning…hmm..THAT’s a good word. But I digress. I think I wrote about my “one little word” last year, my cyber friend Kim Klassen originally told me about it. She got it from here: http://www.bigpictureclasses.com/onelittleword.php
Basically, I choose a word for myself for the year. A word that I can focus on, meditate on, and reflect upon as I go about my daily life. I like it better than resolutions, they are so easy to break or set yourself up for failure.. I feel like this helps me grow and evolve. Having a word helps me focus. I can get so distracted and as I am learning so much lately, I like the parameters having a word gives. That being said, the word I’ve chosen for 2012 is Embrace.
Merriam-Webster defines embrace:
I want to embrace the new. I want to embrace being myself. I want to embrace challenges. I want to hug, welcome, love, encircle, and cherish all that will be in 2012!
I’ve even made a visual for my computer background.
I keep getting clues from the universe that I need to journal again. I will embrace journaling, but I want to write more here, and use a journal to keep track of goals and ideas.
I have a couple of goals for 2012 written already.
- Start walking again
- Get a dog
- Travel to a new place
- complete the 52 week photo challenge at “paint the moon”
- Journal more/blog more
- Get hair clients to make 1 change
- take a color class
- get new shears
- learn to wax eyebrows
- get at least 2 new photo clients
- go to at least 2 new places to photograph
How about you? any resolutions? any goals?
I hope you have a wonderful New Year, and I wish you health, happiness, love and prosperity in your life. I also hope to see more of my friends, and embrace new ones. (see what I did there?!)
