I’m not really into making New Year’s resolutions given my tendencies toward compulsive and bi-polar-esque behavior, as well as the fact that I have no idea in January what will be capturing my attention by the end of the year.
Instead for the past 3 years I have used Leonie Dawson’s “Create Your Amazing Year” workbooks, which I highly recommend. They are all the things I love: fun, pretty, easy, flexible, colorful, creative, imaginative, and expansive.
One of the practices that she (as well as many others) recommend is that of choosing a word to be your theme for the year. So this year I have chosen as my theme the word “Peace”.
The other practice I have started has to do with my new found love of photography.
I started taking e-courses with Vivienne McMaster, most especially the “Be Your Own Beloved” class last fall (highly, highly HIGHLY recommend; go and sign up for the next session right now!) , and now I’m seeing visual stories wherever I go. So I’ve joined Instagram, and everyday I look for a picture to represent how peace is showing up in my life that day.
I’m so excited at this new way I’ve found to tell stories, and so I want to start sharing some of my peaceful pictures here with you. Here is a collage of all the pictures I took last week:
Blessings to all as we start another new year.
