Coming Back to Center

Song - Celtic New Year by Van Morrison




Twenty-sixteen was a rough year for both me and my family. 
I am looking forward to 2017!

There is a certain ebb and flow to our days and years.
Clarity and confusion.
Joy and suffering.
Finding balance.

Now is the time for me to recenter myself.
Rediscovering that core within me.
The one who knows how to feed my spirit.

Somehow through this last year I have forgotten.
It's not gone but just cast aside.
Learning to remember.
Needing that cue to set time aside daily...
...to work on my inner growth. 




My One Little Word for the year is "centering".
Just so I can 
Create
Journey
Cultivate
Love
and
Replenish.

Happy New Year to you and yours.



"One of the most essential things you need to do for yourself is to choose a goal that is important to you.  
Perfection does not exist--you can always do better 
and you can always grow."

Choose Wisely Grasshopper

Song - Fix You by Coldplay covered by Jamie Lim




I have been pondering what my "One Little Word" for the upcoming year might be.  I have a list of about 20 words taken from a long list of suggestions and for now, I have the list where I can see these words often and try to get an idea of how they feel-resonate for me during the next few weeks.  Usually one pops out for me!




In the past my words have been:

Intention 
Balance 
Light 
Thrive 
Simplify 
and 
Grace.  






If we own the story then we can write the ending.

Through Thick and Thin

Song - The Puppy Song by Harry Nilsson



Mika   2003 - 2016


“And it is exceedingly short, his galloping life. 
Dogs die so soon. 
I have my stories of that grief, no doubt many of you do also. 
It is almost a failure of will, 
a failure of love, to let them grow old
—or so it feels. 
We would do anything to keep them with us, 
and to keep them young. 

The one gift we cannot give.” 

 -- Mary Oliver "Dog Songs"
