As for many people, 2016 has been a very difficult year for me: my father's illness,and the loss of my three very old and beloved cats( two of them died in january and the third one in november)made this year a terribly painful one.Add to this the international situation with a regular lot of bad news and you get the picture of a globally dark year.
But inspite of moments of discouragement and days of depression, i held on to my spiritual practice and made it my first goal during the year and it worked. I begin this year with a peaceful mind, and for the first time in my life, some confidence in myself. That should be enough to make this new year an interesting one don't you think so?
I am done with my first word, but there is a second one: "concentrate" and i owe this one to an excellent blogpost written by Teresa Robinson aka Stargardener "Concentrate on one thing" . No more fluttering, i want to concentrate on one project at a time! Thank you Teresa!!
What about you dear readers, did you choose a word for the year? Here are two very interesting blogposts on this topic:
First one by Lise Lamoreux of the blog "Be Present Be Here" ,she chose "Attention"
Second post by Carole Leslie of Zendotstudio , she has choosen several words , Being is one of them, i let you discover the others in her brilliant post.
I will finish this post blogger friends , with a quote i chose in E.Tolle's book "A New Earth" :
" Knowing yourself is to be rootedd in Being, instead of lost in your mind."
Thanks for visiting.
