Today when I was reading through some of my Favorite blogs,
I came across the post of Dani,
Please click on her name to see her blog and post and others that are participating as well.
She came up with the idea for anyone who wants to play along, to pick one word they choose for the next year as a focus for yourself. I think this is a great idea.The word that I have chosen is Embrace!
The definition of embrace is, to clasp or hold close with the arms all living creatures and the whole of nature and it's beauty! During the year 2009 I have tried to live My Best Day Ever, that was my Motto for each day. With sudden life changes, I found it very hard on some days and I found myself going through the grieving process for my Dad! I really feel that I lost a couple of months in there, but I guess that is okay too.All in all I think that the sudden loss of him has made me want for changes in my life.
So for 2010 The word is Embrace, I want to embrace my life and everyday. by embracing the responsibility that I have to myself, first with my Severe Cataplexy illness, embracing my health, embracing the struggle for new energy, embracing living again, embracing taking challenges. Only by embracing myself can I embrace the people around me to the fullest of my ability. I want to embrace being a kinder, more grounded, more spiritual individual. I am going to embrace my life and be present. I don't want to just go through the motions of life.
I am going to embrace my life so I can do the things I have put on hold, or denied myself. I want to embrace others in my community, family, friends in blog land and outside of blog land. I am going to clasp or hold on to
all moments that I consider special and worth embracing.
Before I sign off for the day I want to embrace the wonderful individuals whom have been part of my blog land experience in the last year, to tell you all how much I appreciate you! I want to Thank you for all your kind comments, best wishes, and your spirituality! You made me see the world from your different views and I felt not so closed off from the world because of my circumstances.
So now I am wrapping my arms around you, a great big embrace.
and hold you all near to my heart.
Also Thank you Dani for this wonderful idea.
