I imagine all sorts of things when I think about "light." Like lightening my load, uncluttering my home and mind. Lightening my work load (amen to that one!). Being of a lighter spirit, unburdened from needless worries that take hold in my mind. Sometimes I think of myself as Eyeore, you know Pooh's friend that always has a rain cloud over his head. Thinking thoughts that weigh me down. Now, with "light" as my focus word for 2013, *poof* that rain cloud disappears on a light wind that just happened to be blowing by.
Light can also lead me to get in better physical shape. Lighten up a bit on those scales, I'm thinking. But I also want to be a light for other people. Not sure how or where or when or why, but I want to exude light, or at least a lightness of being during this new year.
Have you found a word to guide you in 2013? I'll admit that some years I've used my word better than in other years. Last year was renew, but to be honest, I didn't put the time or effort into honoring that word. If I did, I would probably be feeling a bit lighter today anyway.
But this year, I have a mentality that will take me wherever the light will lead.
