the holidays have been great.
full of magic as they should be.
some good and much needed down time.
tonight we will ring in 2016 and all that it will bring.
i have decided that my word for 2016 will be "fight".
seems fitting since the second week of the year will find me in surgery, and who knows what will come after that.
more to come on why i chose that word and how i expect to embrace it in the new year.
i have to go into seattle today to have blood drawn as a prep measure for surgery. a blood draw on the last day of 2015. i am not sure if i find that to be ironic, frustrating, or just how my life seems to be rolling these days.
but this day will be full of much more joy than shit so i am choosing to focus on that.
if you are looking for some inspiration for 2016...
- elise has her 2016 daily goal trackers ready for download, and i loved checking off the dates this year on my goal for being active - you can download the 2016 version here (you can also read about her word of the year on her blog)
- ali edwards has her "one little word" class starting up for 2016 and you can read more about that here (you can also read about her word of the year on her blog)
- my friend liz makes amazing talismans and jewelry to help you remember your word through the year, i already have my heart ordered with "fight" on it so that i can physically carry it with me to my appointments this year. you can check out her shop here
i hope that you all have a great start to 2016.
may it bring us all a lot of hope, magic, laughter, and joy. xo
ps) please send some of your new years prayers and love to our uncle kevin in minnesota as he is a fighter just like me and could use some mojo and good vibes for ringing in 2016. keep taking it day by day kevin, we are rooting for you each and every day from here. xo
