These words. These beautiful, powerful, grounding, guiding words. These are the words you have shared. The words you have chosen for your year. But they are more than words, aren’t they? These are our wishes, our clarion calls, our dreams. When the world is quiet at night, these are the words we will return to, our touchstones to gauge how intentional we are being, how much we are offering ourselves what we want. These words are our home base when the world gets hairy or unfriendly or hard. When we face our deepest challenges, we will whisper to ourselves, “courage, challenge, peace, confidence, surrender, authenticity, intentional” and we will know which way is true, we will see our way forward. These words are our mini-manifestos for the year ahead. May each one of us have the year of our imagining and know that though the year will serve us surprises that we could never have imagined, by choosing our intention this year with our word, we have made it malleable. We have placed our fingerprint into our year with our word, and we have claimed that we can and will make it our own, even in the midst of its surprises.
Here’s to a 2012 filled with all of those good things we embraced above. Godspeed.
