Journaling My One Word Journey AND Five Quick Tips for Finding Yours

IMG_8606

 

Well it’s that time of year again. The time of year when many choose to make resolutions, set intentions, carve out goals, and plan their dreams for the fast approaching new year.

 

Since 2012 I have been joining in the One Word trend which continues to grow in popularity. I often begin to reflect upon my One Word choice in November or so which is when I allow myself to begin cautiously  considering the year to come. I say cautiously, because I want to be careful not to miss out on being present and available in the last months of the current year. I think there can be too much focus on the nuts and bolts of these kinds of things instead of the substance.

 

As someone who reflects regularly in time, I believe there is a natural unfolding of occurrences which make it easy to tune in to what is needed on all levels- mentally, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, and in all areas that one needs to grow and grapple with in their daily life.

I believe if we are in tune with God, ourselves and others- we will hear a plethora of possibilities that might be overwhelming. So many choices- and yet we want to limit ourselves to one?

Apples (God Knows Where I Am)

 

“Dear, God, please save me, I’m trying, but I don’t know what to do.” from documentary God Knows Where I Am.

 

As promised, my second poetic reflection after watching the documentary God Knows Where I Am- about the life of Linda Bishop. The documentary offers much to consider on the subjects of homelessness, mental health care, mental illness and our current healthcare system. I am not strong in these kinds of debates and discussions. But what I do offer is here in this small poem.

You can see the first poem, called What Matters Not HERE.

I have included the trailer for the movie below. Please take a moment and watch it. For more information go to God Knows Where I Am website.

What Matters Not

Whatever happens in life
I am a stone by the river

The water flows regardless
and I am unmoved.

Sarcasm

sarcasm-2015186_1920

But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison. With it we bless our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the likeness of God;  from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing.”

Becoming Crisdori Studios-An Interview with Creative Entrepreneur Christine Miranda

 

 

One of the wonderful things about being a free-flying writer is choosing who and what you want to focus on. I write about who and what I feel is worth writing about.  I am free to focus on who I find inspiring, what I am learning or want to learn, or even just whatever grabs my attention, passion or fancy. I choose. It is one of the few places I feel I have complete control, and I have opportunities I do not accept as my time is limited, and the joy for me is in the freedom to write as I will, or feel led- as I go.

I enjoy interviews, and have been interviewed BUT really love being the one asking the questions. I love finding out about individuals and their unique lives, challenges, what makes them tick, and what they are passionate about and all the little quirks that make them who they are. You could say I am a people person. It’s a funny thing…I find many people can be around the same people all the time and never know them. It is my joy and pleasure to draw out individuals and learn who they are and why they believe they are on this good earth.

I am honored to have a fellow Planner Girl and businesswoman here today to share her creative entrepreneurial journey to date. I have had the pleasure of watching her flesh out her dream from scratch and bring it into vivid, living color.  More
