02 Dec shifts and systems
Wow. What a day. I’m so exhausted I can barely write out the thoughts I want to share. But, my mind has been swirling with ideas all day and I know I have to at least attempt to get them out before sweet slumber.
Picture the Holidays began today which makes me giddy. The enthusiasm from participants has been totally infectious and I know these next 30 days are going to be amazing. And on top of that, Reverb10 began today too which is yet another vehicle for creative inspiration this month. So exciting!
I can think of no better way to honor 2010 and welcome the new one coming than by reflecting on the past and looking to the future, all the while appreciating in the present.
I kicked off Picture the Holidays today with a prompt of gratitude. It’s my way of getting things off on the right foot. And today’s prompt at Reverb was to pick a word that speaks for all of 2010 and one that will speak for 2011. Two words to say it all.
After much contemplation, I have chosen the word shift to sum up 2010. And amidst of number of shifts that have occurred in the last year in my life, perhaps the one I am most aware of is my deliberate shift into gratitude. It’s created a ripple effect that has changed my entire life for the better. Grateful for who I am, for what I have and for each and every blessing, large or small, that surrounds me. Gratitude is perhaps the most powerful shift I have ever experienced.
Totally unrelated (I think) is my word right now as I look forward to 2011; systems. Whether or not that will end up being my One Little Word for the year isn’t clear yet. It’s a little on the practical side for that. But for now, and for today’s prompt which is so much about our intentions for the year ahead, systems is what I keep going back to. It might sound obscure out of context, but I know exactly what it means and I guess that’s all that matters when you’re manifesting.
I’m exhausted after a long and fruitful day (have I mentioned that?) but I am so excited about this month and all the good that will come from tapping into my creativity ( in photography, writing, collaborating, and manifesting). It feels amazing to be on the cusp of so much good.
What’s good in your life right now? What are you looking forward to? Do you have a few words that sum it up for you?
