As I've mentioned before, I typically don't do New Year's resolutions, but this year, I have decided to claim a word of the year and mantra to focus my intentions. My 2009 focus word is:
My 2009 mantra is:
I am full of energy, life, and passion, and I will take action to push my boundaries, find my edge, and say "yes" to life.
One of the aspects of my word and mantra is to include more travel and fun in my life. With this mantra in mind, I'm off for a short weekend get-away to KC to see Celine Dion in concert. Last spring when my mom asked if I'd like to join her and her two sisters for the concert, I couldn't say no. While my dream concert would be to see Madonna, and I do plan on seeing her someday soon, I'm still excited to Celine. This is a great way to start the New Year.
Hope your 2009 is off to a great start. If you have your own personal word or mantra, I'd love for you to share.
