word for 2012

The past 2 years, like many others, I've chosen a word for the year. One little word to focus on. This year my word may surprise you. "effortless"

I like the definition: achieved with admirable ease

Does it mean I'm not going to try anything difficult or new? On the contrary. I have some challenging new and exciting plans for 2012!
It's more about an attitude. A knowing that whatever comes my way can be handled with ease.
And allowing the creativity to flow instead of forcing it.
And letting go of perfectionism, knowing the best of what we are is more than enough.
And appreciating what is right in front of me
And slowing down to... well, you know...
Here's to a fabulous 2012! Thank you for going along for this ride with me. I truly appreciate you coming to my corner of the internet.

  2. Of course I'm following along--that's how I get MY inspiration!
    You go and we'll follow! In fact, a friend just made a quilt based on one of your designs that I suggested. When she finishes the behemoth, I'll let you know!♥

  8. Makes sense to me! I have a friend who gives herself a new "name" each year, to go along with her "word". What would yours be, I wonder? I'm so glad that I found your inspiring blog! Happy New Year, Cindy.
