My word of the year


Lots of my favourite bloggers choose a word for the year and I’ve read some interesting thoughts on how to choose and use words for 2013. I love it! It’s fascinating to see the different interpretations of similar words, and I’ve been spurred on to choose my own. I do love the words, after all.

Last year, I sort of half-chose “let go” as my word/phrase. I had some pretty definite ideas about what that meant in specific areas of my life. In the end, they didn’t really happen, but somehow “let go” fits 2012 pretty well.

This year, I’ve chosen “wishing”. It’s a bit fairies and rainbows and unicorns, I know. I’m ok with that. But having let go of a lot of stuff (by which I really mean shit), it’s time to start thinking about what I really hope for and want in my life. And “wishing” really encapsulate that for me.

I’m ready to start breaking things down so that I know what my dream is in any situation – the anything-is-possible, no-realism-need-apply thing. Then knowing what I can actually do to make the wish real, and what’s left to just hoping and wishing and putting good vibes out there. (I’m a massive hippy. I know.)

Yes, I have some wishes for 2013. The first is that I’ll have a successful and speedy recovery from my tonsillectomy next week (no horror stories, please). The rest are still being explored…

A little late, but happy new year! Wishing you a wonderful year of goodness x
