Word for the Year
Celebrating the light in me this past March with a dear friend.
This year my word(s) were Trust the Adventure
Some years the adventure is a difficult one
and this just felt like that.
I wasn't sure I saw the results of it
until in one day this fall two different people
commented that I looked like I was on an adventure.
Sometimes life adventures don't reveal themselves
except in small ways and then only if we really
open ourselves to notice.
When I received those comments I saw it,
I saw the life adventure I was on and wrapped myself
in it's JOY.
Next year my word is LIGHT, which I am very excited about.
There were many words that came along, but they just didn't feel right.
Then as I reflected on Winter Solstice I thought of the light.
I thought about paying attention to the light in my photography.
I thought about the light within me.
I started noticing the word light in things I read.
The last line of the last book I read in 2019:
"the light shimmered, settled, held."
~author, Nora Roberts
May the light shimmer for each of us in the new year.
May each of us be blessed beyond measure.
May each bump in the road bring us more fully into the light.
For we must let our light shine in a dark world.
Delight in the day and SHINE.
The light will guide us.
The light will teach us.
And the light will shine upon us.
Notice as the light surrounds you.
Yes, light will shine for each of us in 2020!
