In January, I take a day to do some reflecting on the past year and to make some intentions for the new year.
I choose three words that resonate with me for my “words” for the year. I started doing this a few years ago, and I really enjoy the process. I also like to have these words to refer back to each month as they bring me back to my “path” when I get distracted with all the little details of life. 🙂
My three words are for the three areas of my life: Family, art and me.
My first word is for my family. Something I want to hold in my mind as I spend special time with them.
My second word is for my art. A word that will lead and direct me on my creative journey.
My third word is a personal word for just for me. A directional word to bring myself back to center and keep me true to myself.
My family word is “ADORE”
My art word is “LISTEN.” I plan to use this word in a few ways. To really listen to my self and my inner thoughts on what I want to paint and what path I want to take with my art. I am also NOT going to listen to everyone who has an opinion about my art path and who feels the need to share it with me. Sometimes I get so caught up in what everyone else thinks I should be doing, that I get drawn away from being true to myself (and my fairies.) I’m giving myself permission to dismiss suggestions and do what I want to do.
Doesn’t that sound like fun! Of course, this is just in reference to my art, not my entire life. 🙂
o hear what someone (Myself in this case) has said and understand that it is serious, important, or true. T
Do you have words that you pick for the New Year or do you make traditional New Years resolutions? I would love to hear what will be inspiring you this year.
Have a wonderful, creative, day, Janell
