I don't do the resolutions thing anymore. After years of disappointment, I decided to ditch them. They'd become sore reminders of my failure, so to the moon, Alice they went! Last year, I wrote affirmations, instead, which I really liked. In my mind's eye, they were the exact opposite of resolutions: positive and never demanding unreasonable things of me--who can lose 50 pounds or go the gym EVERYDAY or read the Bible every night WITHOUT falling asleep after the first few lines--IMPOSSIBLE! My affirmations really changed my view of myself and my world. This year I am trying Ali Edwards' One Little Word approach in addition to my affirmations.
Directions: Pick one word that will be your driving force for 2016. Hear it, say it, meditate on it. Let the word become a part of your lexicon and lifeicon.
Drum roll please ... My one little word is not little at all--it's big; it's huge really. It's LOVE.
Why? I could use more. I'm sure you could use more. Don't we all need some more love? I want to transform. What is more transformative than love?
Reflecting on 2015, it was abundantly clear that love could have made my crooked places straight and mend the wrongs around our world. It is the easiest and hardest thing to give and receive, and yet I want to challenge myself to do just that!
In the words of one of my favorite music groups, a little bit of love is all it takes! Rock on with me as you listen to the music below and spread a little love yourself.
