Resolution is a funny old word, so overused and then berated at this time of year.
I like the word intention. In my mind it conjures up a concentration of energy that causes inner and outer movement. It is the opposite of ‘stuckness’ (not to be confused with stability, stillness, ‘in-between-ness’) a miserable, confining state.
I am pondering what to do intentionally in 2010: what I will set my mind to; where I will concentrate my energy, my resolve, my will, my head space, my heart space, my days, my 20 minute chunks of time which make up my days.
I want to get that beautiful balance between living intentionally and yet being flexible enough to respond to what life throws up which I have no control over – fresh currents of opportunity and those rocky obstacles. Yes, that is the difference between intent and stuckness – it feels like a river not a swamp.
Here’s to 2010 – children and family loving, home-making, rhythm setting, mosaic-creating, creativity-igniting, crafting, community-celebrating, writing, contemplating, drawing, making, photographing, beautifying, growing, discovering, dreaming, believing.
Thank you to all of you who have become friends and watchers here in 2009 and for those who have left comments and given me so much encouragement in person too. Thank you for joining me on my journey.
