My one word theme for 2010 was “receptivity.” And, what an amazing year it has been! I have been receptive to many things: ideas, guidance, love, money, possibilities and opportunities. So much has changed including the opportunity to buy a new house and create a home that I love and will love for a long time to come. I had spent nine years in rental homes since moving to San Diego and now, it really feels like San Diego is my home in every way. The love in my life expanded and my relationship with the love of my life has grown to new depths.
As the new year approaches, I’ve been thinking of a word for 2011. I’m not quite decided yet–after all, I do have thirty-six hours before it begins–but, one thing I do know: I will accumulate the words over the years, adding each new one while maintaining the previous ones. Having spent this past year focused on receptivity, I never want to lose or diminish that. I simply want to add to it.
- What will be your word for 2011?
I put my word up on my bathroom mirror to keep it in mind, as well as on my computer monitor. I also wrote it in the front of my notebook. This year, tho, I’m adding a little punch to it by making it a screensaver that I will see frequently. You might want to do that, too.
A good way to keep your commitment to sow peace within, at work and at home in mind is to sign the Commitment to Sow Peace, print it out and place it near your word. You’ll find it at SowPeace.com/commitment
