Welcome to 2014...the year that answers


(I just love the endless possibilities evoked with this quote!)


How did you like my "hey, monday" post on a Thursday yesterday? Shame that I "accidentally" hit the publish button on a post that was meant for next week! Or...maybe...I didn't realize it wasn't Monday until half way through the morning...but oh well it felt like a Monday for most of us. The first real day back to the grind.

So it's 2014. I have to admit I was nowhere near ready for the new year. Typically I spend some time the week or two before reviewing the year that just passed, planning for the year to come, and picking my one word to guide me through. This year it all snuck up on me. All of a sudden it was New Year's Eve and I had no clue how to end one wild year and start the next.  So, I spent most of day one listening to what I was craving more of and figuring out how to make that happen. (Thank you new moon!) But I'll tell you more about all of those plans next week.

Until then, I wanted to encourage you...if you have not done this already...to come up with a word of your own. Or maybe just set an intention for the new year. How do you want to feel when the year is over?

Still not sure? Here are some links to help inspire you.

There is so much inspiration out there, but the truth and direction can only come from within. Take a moment to be still, have some lavender & chamomile tea, listen to the whispers and lean in to whatever may be calling you. Trust what feels right. 

And don't worry if you don't spend 100% of your time trying to manifest your chosen "feeling" this year. Just remember to use it as a guide when asking yourself what you want to do with that spare hour, or what you are going to have for lunch, or whether you want to watch a comedy or a drama tonight, or what you want to wear today. Try your best, but even the smallest details can make a big difference. 

Happy New Year! Welcome to 2014.
