happy 2011 & one litte word

it is the first day back to school and work in germany- the house is unusually quiet and my sukah baby and i are going gently about our day, finding our new rhythm.

our winter break was nothing short of eventful… sukah baby started walking on christmas eve, we enjoyed the company of treasured friends and family over brunches, bonfires,coffees, warm winter soup suppers, and winter walks over the hill and through the forest…the weather has been perfect for skiing and sledding, curling up with a good book, baking chocolate chip cookies, movie nights and of course dreaming of all the things i want to do in this brand new year…

i am excited to have signed up for ali edward’s one little word e-course this year-

a single word can be a powerful thing. it can be the ripple in the pond that changes everything. it can be sharp and biting or rich and soft and slow. from my own personal experience, it can be a catalyst for enriching your life.”

my word for 2011 is embrace.

to embrace myself, to be true to myself, and to be grateful for what gets done, not what doesn’t get done on my list everyday.

to embrace my beautiful family, to give the gift of time on their terms ( i will no longer insist on reading, painting, crafting, baking…instead i will play battle of the dinosaurs and race cars with my prana boy and give my tall dark and handsome one evening during the week off, free of domestic duties)

to embrace my friends, accept them unconditionally, as they are.

to embrace challenges, cultivate a positive warrior attitude {ROAR!}.

there it is, my word.

a very happy 2011 to you! i wish you the energy and vibrancy to embrace all that comes your way, the power to persevere through challenges big and small- and the gifts of peace and joy everyday!
