2013: My Year To Know ENOUGH



I’ve been someone who finds a word for my year for a few years Now. 

My first go, in 2010, was really so-so on its best days, but the word seems to have hung on nonetheless!! That was Simplify.

2011 was the year I was going to make this Big Honking Splash in the World with the word Visible. The upshot was that by the end of the year I was really clear that visibility was NOT what I’d thought.

2012 was my first really hopeful experience. My word was Discipline. I thought that was so weird, but it really resonated. Apparently I have lacked Discipline, or at least that is how I see it today.

I did some amazing for me things in 2012, NOT ONE of which could have come into BEing without Discipline. Daily. Weekly. Monthly. Whatever the container the key was Discipline.

And then, of course, there was the Letting Go of 4 wheels which brought on the Discipline of walking, BEcoming mindful about EVERYthing I did [and did NOT].

I am NOT surprised that Enough would rise to the top for 2013. It has so many meanings to me already, but I’m letting it take its time, as I am, too.

For 3 days in this is Quite Enough about Enough…

I think I'm running a year behind you since I picked Discipline for my word this year for exactly the same reason you stated.

Good word, beautiful picture! :)

Andrea said...

I can clearly relate to the word "Enough", but in things that are outside of myself or my control. But in my personal world there is perhaps never enough ... life is so full of good and it is so easily disguised by clutter. Finding it is a never ending journey ... I know this is probably different than what you are saying, but that is how my mind responded to your word ... interesting, huh?
