If you remember back on this post, I mentioned that I changed the word that I had embraced as my word my for 2015 at the last minute and chose the word Embrace instead. From that point forward I felt as though my life had turned upside down. Seriously I don't think that a word we embrace makes that much of a difference in our lives, but I was feeling as though the word that I had chosen instead of the one that had been in my mind all along was creating a little havoc in my life.
How silly does that sound? Right?
Well this is how it went....2015.
Having to sell a wheel to keep the business going. My parents were involved in a serious accident. An inured deer had to be shot in my back yard the day after my parent's accident, think bloody yard on white snow.. On our trip to visit a dear friend and my son a few days later, my car crapped out on the way. Ey yi yi....time for a change.
When I mentioned to my husband that I wanted to go back to my original word, but I felt as though it was cheating, he looked at me and said..."It's ok, you can make your word be whatever you want it to be...it's your word."
(I know he thinks I am nuts, but he humors me.)
Well, he is right. My original word for 2015 was Sparkle.
Somehow I let myself translate embracing my Sparkling energy into embracing all of the challenging things that we deal with in our daily journey.
They really are two different things aren't they? We all have challenges that we have to meet, but how we view and deal with them is truly our challenge.
For me, I choose to Sparkle on. :)
