At the start of every year I choose one theme to focus on. This theme guides my days and gives insight about choices. Having a theme also keeps me from getting stuck for too long on any one thing.
Last year my theme was "death to ego". Yikes! Yes, to some this may sound extreme...and it was. Like many of you have shared, 2018 was tumultuous on many levels. And also so rich with learning!
As it relates to the theme of "death to ego", my experiences in 2018 gave me the opportunity to practice, to really really really practice: non-judgment, acceptance, letting go, gratitude, fun...faith!
Something tells me in 2019 I will continue to practice the above...and also bring in
My 2019 Theme which is based on this quote, "When you honor your passion, you give it life." Much lighter than last years theme, ha!
What this means is being true to myself, honoring what / who gives me life and keeping them close. Nourishing these daily with apologies to no one... and remembering it doesn't matter how big or small the expression this passion takes.
Today's passionate expression is me sharing with you in the photo below my 2 delicious cats. I simply adore them. They meditate with me, yoga with me, and for 8 years I have cooked their food.
The point is --- I have chosen, committed to, and will take consistent action (daily) on this theme to honor my passions. By honoring them, I give them life, make them real and in turn...I am ALIVE.
What's your 2019 theme?
I'd love to know. Email me here if you want to share.
