My one simple word

As the last few hours of 2011 wash away and fade into the horizon, a whole new year is about to emerge.  It will be a year filled with brand new possibilities, and powerful intentions to manifest.  A year where positive thoughts are sculpt into realities, and simple prompts inspire new stories to be written while old ones can be edited or discarded.  Truths will be told, new relationships will emerge, and there will be opportunities for knowing when to let go and when to hold on.  

I have given a lot of thought these past few weeks and have careful chosen my little word for 2011.  This one simple, yet powerful and insightful word will help  me navigate and keep me on my path as I walk with ease in the direction of my dreams.

My word for 2012 is 

This is the word I will focus on and mediate with.  It will be my mantra when I set my intentions, and make choices for my life.

When there is balance in my life, there is peace, and everything is perfect in each and every moment. This year, I strive for balance in all I do.  

When I am in balance ~ I choose with ease
When I am in balance ~ I practice self-care and self-love
When I am in balance ~ my choices are inner-directed
When I am in balance ~ self doubt no longer exists
When I am in balance ~ the foods I eat are healthy and whole
When I am in balance ~ my energy is abundant
When I am in balance ~ I really believe "I am enough"
When I am in balance ~ I know how to ask and receive
When I am in balance ~ boundaries are set with perfect perimeters
When I am in balance ~ my heart is filled with JOY
When I am in balance ~ I am proactive, instead of, reactive
When I am in balance ~ synchronistic events occur all around me.

 ~ When I am in Balance ~
I feel deeply connected to my soul and what really matters.

What is your one simple, 
powerful, and insightful for word
for 2012?

I wish you much peace and love as you let go of 2011, 
and for your heart to be wide open
 for all the beautiful new possibilities
that await for you
 in 2012.

I wish you an abundance of magic in all you do.

I am so looking forward to sharing this journey with you in the 
New Year.

wishing you more of what matters

I just loved these words that Martha found on Pinterest  so much that I had to share them with you.

May your holiday season
be filled with the simple things
 that bring joy, contentment and 
magic to you and your family.  

Wishing you more 
of the simple moments 
of what matters 
closest to your heart.

Thanks so much for sharing this journey with me.
See you in the New Year.

With Love and Light,

A year of wishes

My heart is full of gratitude and joy.  I recently entered a drawing to win "A year of wishes Calendar", created by the beautiful and very talented Lori Porka and Lisa Sarick.  You can read about their stories and see more of Lori’s art by clicking on the words that are in pink. 

To enter the drawing for this beautiful calendar, all I had to do was write my wishes for the this coming year, and leave it in the comment section of Lori’s blog.  For those of you who follow my blog,  you know how much I love setting intentions.  In fact, I am looking forward to sharing our family ritual of intention setting for the new year which I will post the first week in January.  Setting intentions has alway been a magical ritual for me.  So, I wrote on Lisa’s comment section of her blog, and this is what I wished for ....

  • to create a greater sense of health and an abundance energy for myself
  • to expand my creativity and share it with others
  • to be a radiant and positive light for my daughter
  • to be loving and mindful with my husband
  • to be the light for others and to guide them to follow their hearts, to listen to the quiet voice within, and know that their lives are filled with possibilities.

I was so excited and grateful to see my name picked out of a hat.  I was one of 5 fortunate women to be gifted this beautiful calendar. 

It truly is so much more than just a calendar.  You can learn all about its magic by watching this fun and inspiring video.

When you want to feel renewed and joyful, stop by Lori’s Etsy, and spread the LOVE.  I know you will find the perfect gifts for yourself and for those you hold deep in your heart.

What do you wish for today?
