And so it begins....another year....a fresh 365. For the last few years I have chosen a word of intent rather than setting myself up for failure by setting a resolution. I use my word to guide my daily photo meditations that I post on Instagram (#loveleeokc_connect2017)
My words in past years:
I take some time to think about what intention I would like to set for the new year. Sometimes it comes to me right away while other times it needs to mull around in my brain and on my heart before my intuition kicks me and says...that's it! that's your word!
This is one of the years that I'm going with the first word that came to me. And that word is connect.
There are so many ways for me to apply it in my life. I want to connect with others. I want to connect with my body, mind and spirit. I want to connect with my camera. I want to connect with nature.
I intend to connect with others by putting down the devices and listening earnestly to what they are saying. I want to have genuine conversations. I want to invite a friend for coffee to talk about what's on our hearts and minds. I want to cook a meal together with my children without the distraction of iphone or television. I want to go to dinner with my husband on a regular basis so we can have real conversation and not just a "hello, how was your day?" in passing.
I intend to connect with my body, mind and spirit through meditation, movement and giving my body whole and natural foods.
I intend to connect with my camera by continuing my one little word instagrams, taking some online classes, and working to build up my Stocksy port.
I intend to connect with nature by getting outside everyday and engaging all five senses to keep me grounded.
How about you? Have you chosen a word for the new year? I invite you to share your word with us in the comments, on Instagram or on our Facebook page or by posting your photo in our Flickr pool.
