Thanks as always to Andrea from ABC Creativity for the weekly reminder to set an intention.
Last night I spent some time thinking of my One Little Word for 2011 and came up with “BE!” Last year I spent waaaaayyyyy too much time really not accomplishing anything–a lot of time in front of the TV being tired and cranky. Yesterday I spent the day getting my two creative rooms ready for me to start my engines running. When I look at the rooms, they make me happy–see yesterday’s post for pictures. They may not be much to anyone else, but when I look at them and see how spacious my creative room is to allow my creative juices to flow–and how cozy and comfortable my den is to allow me to relax and just “BE!” I just feel more energetic.
I just want to talk more about my word for the year, it is “BE!” but that is just a prefix for so many other words that I want to be this year as well (where needed, I’ve included a brief description):
– belay – secure
– belive – by and by
– because (I can)
– becalm (soothe)
– on behalf of (myself)
– behave (the way I want to)
– bedazzle – beautify/impress
– beget – produce
– behind (support)
– behold (beauty)
– and the list goes on (I’m still working my way through the dictionary) ;o)
When this came to me it just felt right–I want to “BE!!” The word “DO!” was a close second or “Focus!” but “BE!” included it all.
As for this week, I want to begin to move into the direction of being. Today, I’m spending the day collaging, dreaming, journalling, and listening to music–right now it’s Celtic (which, for me, is energetic and soothing all at once). I also want to start moving my body more–yes that “exercise” word. I want to start dancing around my house like I used to–to feel the joyous movements and feel the music flow through me.
Have a wonderful week everyone!!!
