As an afterthought to a recent post, I picked a word of the year for 2010. Unfortunately, the word I picked has some mental connotations for me that are less than inspirational.
I picked the word "CLEANSE". Does your junk email box come to mind, perhaps coupled with the word "colon"?
So, I looked through my trusty thesaurus for a better, less burdened word.
My new word for the year is CLARITY. It still works with the explanations I gave in my first choice of words, thusly:
I will declutter and organize, clearing my space. I will breathe deeply and intentionally, clearing my body. I will reaffirm my faith and gratitude and present-ness, clearing my soul.
Clarity also works wonderfully well with communication, another biggie I'm emphasizing in my life these days.
There, I feel better now. Lighter, even.
