I feel empowered today because four of my blog friends and myself are joining together AGAIN and reflecting on our WORDS for the year. It is really a gift for me that we chose to do this project together as I feel these posts help keep my WORD in the forefront of my mind.
We began our journey with our WORDS back in January. Caroline over at The Zen in You gave us the inspiration.
The ideas lady, Coach, suggested "this month we make one statement......one sentence about how we are feeling about our Word and where we are in the month of August. An honest assessment of how it is going. Pitfalls or Pleasures".
Now as I am such a music freak the song I associate with this post is:
ON MY WAY HERE by CLAY AIKEN:
"On My Way Here
Where I am now
I've learned to fly
I have to want to leave the ground
I've fallen hard
But I've been loved
And in the end it all works out
My faith has conquered fear
On my way here".
Here are our reflections for August:
Coach - ABUNDANCE
In August, I recognized the ABUNDANCE of seeing old friends, listening to great music, feeling the cool mountain air, and having a real time phone conversation with a good mate!
Annemarie - DISCIPLINE
DISCIPLINE is setting your eyes on the prize, recognizing what you need to do to get there and removing all obstacles that will prevent you from finishing the race.
Roban - JOY and FAITH
I have found that JOY is all around me.... It just takes opening my eyes and heart to really see it and feel it!
Julie - EXCELLENCE
EXCELLENCE: A process and a discipline, not a destination.
Moi - BALANCE
Striving for BALANCE between complexity and simplicity, constantly evaluating and re-evaluating the trade-offs I have to make to get there.
This quote I dedicate to my lovely friends:
"By associating with wise people you will become wise yourself".
