There have been a number of bloggers out there writing of "words" they select for the year ahead. Honestly, I never do that, and I had no intention of doing it this year either.
Until I read Stacey's blog post yesterday. Have you met Stacey over at Poofing the Pillows? Not only is she a kind and wonderful person but her blog is ever so inspiring!
Stacey wrote a post about her word of the year for 2016. And at the end she asked her readers to share their word of the year.
Immediately my thoughts went to "mindful." And that word stuck in my brain and lodged itself there, good and proper.
Isn't that what I've been trying to do with my goals for 2016? To sum it all up in one word, am I not trying to be more mindful?
Mindful of what I eat.
Mindful of my body and it's needs.
Mindful of knowing exactly where my food comes from.
Mindful of my spending.
Mindful of the earth and how we respect it.
Mindful of the people around me and their thoughts and feelings.
Mindful of the beauty to be found all around me in simple, everyday moments.
So I guess I officially have a word for 2016.
And you know what? I'm excited!
