I continue to be amazed at the power of selecting a single word to focus and meditate on for the year. This will be the third year I’ve done this, and I truly believe in the power of this simple little exercise.
My first year, my word was ‘Contentment‘. I spent the year working on finding and cultivating contentment in my life and in my heart. I worked on being happy today, rather than constantly looking to what will come. At the same time, I learned how to have goals and dreams without letting the desire to reach them cloud out the good that is in the now. I learned and grew so much that year. I actually feel like that was a transformative year for me, one in which I really began to find myself.
