Lately I see people choosing a word of the year. One word is certainly easier than a list of resolutions! Several years ago the word “joy” kept creeping into my radar. That I craved, it, wanted more of it, wanted to readily recognize it. That word is still constantly buzzing in the background. Mulling over a word the last few days, what struck me is “abundance.”
I love the idea that one word can be concise and distilled, or can encompass a huge range of ideas and actions. I would like abundance of joy, abundance in my life, abundance is others lives. Does this mean money? No, not really for me. Do I want to be comfortable? Hell, yes. Yet there is so much more to abundance. Health, time, exercise, sunshine. Time and health to teach yoga, to give others health. An abundant breath, abundant energy, abundant heart to make room for joy! So that will be my focus for the year. Do you have a word?
Happy New Year!
Don't forget to breathe!
