One Word 2013

This will not be a long blog post could I possibly add to John Lennon?  I found my one word/intention for self and others in Central Park this past week. Would love to hear yours.  For a fun new celebration, see Jill Badonsky's Awemanac facebook page.  For those of you hanging in there for my sporadic posts...a sincere thank you...I have not done well in keeping up with my blog or friends.  I wish you all peace, joy and love in the new year!

Happiness is a Choice

Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify.  Henry David Thoreau

Much of this past year I have worked hard to do just that...simplify.   So much easier said than done.  I have taken a less demanding job that is more fulfilling @ this time of my life and I am slowly learning the art of delegation in my home life.  I am learning that what I bring to the table in this moment is its own perfection.  And I am clearing out spaces...a little @ a weed out the consumer driven life that controls some of us.  And finally I am beginning to notice sky as canvas, the arch of a tree limb and bell clocks ringing in a glorious day.  What are you doing to slow down your own time? Need help...write a list of what you value most and look for those areas in life that don't match. Start small...leave some extra time to notice your surroundings...journal about the flavor of the day...what sights sounds smells etc called to you?  Love the moment you are in as life is measured in moments:)

(In my attempt to simplify I am trying to learn to blog from my phone...if this post looks a mess.
Well this is a skill I've yet to master:)
