Hello, 2014. You've been asking for a new word. Lucky you. You barely escaped the choosing of a truly busy word. I want to accomplish many things and reintroduce crafting, projects, art, and creativity. I thought maybe "diligent, industrious, work."
Later I considered the word, "glow." A more steady, warm, sustainable form of sparkling.
Contentment... Inner harmony. I want to restore the portions of lost heart to my friends, family... And myself. Nurture... Kindness... Hope...
My friend Alison, suggested no word, just being. Another friend seemed to indicate the wisdom of keeping the word a secret between you and the universe.
Beauty. Commitment. Composure. I could revisit an old one, Authenticity.
“You cannot teach a man anything. You can only help him discover it within himself.” —Galileo Galilei .... So I return to the inner fires of beauty, contentment, ambition... To share an inner glow with the ones I love. I choose ......
Creativity and Kindness... Who says we can't choose two.
