Ward House

Release

I have seen many bloggers write about choosing a word for their new year’s resolution.  For several days now I have resisted the urge.  There are so many things I want to do that a word really seems inadequate; that is until I read Julies post about less.  Following links back I finally got to the blog that started it all – Resolution Revolution; the original post was written in 2007 yet still touches us today.

Sadly, I cannot remember exactly how many and who posted their one word for the year.  After reading the Resolution post, I decided on my word for 2010: Release.  This represents not only a release of all those things that live in my house that I do not need or use (but am keeping for some odd reason) but also a release of ideas, feelings, habits that are no longer useful or are counterproductive.

Resolution Revolution offered these words as a springboard:

Compassion
Delight
Generosity
Effortlessness
Wealth
Gratitude
Abundance
Creativity
Willingness
Change
Growth
Freedom
Mastery
Kindness
Health
Presence
Acceptance
Courage
Confidence
Self-Love
Action
Forgiveness
Forgive
Release
Trust
Knowing
Patience
Friendship
Fun
Grace
Laughter
Love
Expansion
Exploration
Adventure
Openness
Discipline
Awe
Awareness
Risk
Gentleness
Choice
Spirit
Prayerfulness
Power
Allow
Artfulness
Attention
Beauty
Joy
Focus
Ritual
Heal
Order
Clarity
Pioneer
Peace
Laziness
No
Yes
Deliberateness
Commitment
Savor
Integrity
Listen

So, what’s your word?

And to add some laughter, here is a hint of crazy from this evening.. ..K14’s bangs gone wild and then K14 sharing some of her hair with Ronnie.  LOL  Somehow I just cannot picture Ronnie as a light brunette.  *snickers*

  2. excellent point, faerwillow. Releasing some, not all. Even the 'bad' has a lesson!
