You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought “I release the need for this in my life.” Wayne Dyer
My word of the year “Release” truly captures the essence of all that I want to experience this year. Every intention that I set involved some form of letting go ~ useless guilt, the act of do-ing instead of be-ing, organization of record-keeping and the list goes on…all the things that clutter the house, mind and spirit.
One of the realizations that I came to, not a rocket science moment I admit but still a bit of a revelation to me, revolves around the idea that this simple word “release” requires that I pay attention daily. Letting (whatever ~ fill in the blank) go into the universe is a soothing exercise but it is not enough. So each day I have journaled around the concept from different perspectives ~ focusing on the mind shift instead of adding yet another to-do list to my world (especially since busyness is one of my “releases”). I find it welcoming that the above art journal page is much cleaner (less of everything) than usual, a clear example of the simple lines I am craving right now.
What have you released lately?
