Each year I have picked a word of the year, but haven’t written about it since 2013. My word for 2013 was Sunny, and I think that was an appropriate word and a necessary word and idea to have in my life and in each day of 2013; it was such an awful year, but also it ultimately led me to where I am today.
The word of the year that I have picked for 2016 is Happiness. Perhaps I didn’t exactly pick it as much as it picked me. I have been working on ideas of happiness through my healing for some years, especially since I started blogging over six years ago.
As time has gone by and healing has occurred the areas of focus on happiness has changed, as I have grown and healed and learned more and more what happiness means to me/us, how much I/we love happiness, and how to it is necessary to focus on it and to invite happiness out for lunch and a nice talk in some comfortable chair in the shade on the grass, with the sun shining and a soft breeze blowing. We will be working on that a lot in this next year and blogging about it.
Focusing on doing things that bring us happiness through this year is our first goal for the year 2016.
When happiness shows up, always give it a comfortable seat.
