Word for 2013

My word for this year came to me while meditating one morning a couple of weeks ago. 

It is a well-known word.
A word that is simple....profound... but not always easy.
Or straight-forward.

It can be used in ways trite,
or it can change your life
and the world around you.

And while even a lifetime is not enough to fully grasp its depth and significance,
learning its ways and nuances provide the only lessons that truly matter.


Love one another. Love life. Love the planet. 
Love your life. Love yourself. Love creating. 
Love and embrace this moment and all that it holds as if it were your child.

Great word! I'm still trying to figure mine out. I have a few ideas, but nothing has really spoken to me yet. I know it will, eventually. Last year, it was believe. Hugs, Leena

Wonderful word~LOVE~ There should be more of it in the world and in each day.
I wrote about my word the other day and mine for the year is...Focus. If you knew me you would know that it's an appropriate word for me and one that I "need" to work on.

What a lovely idea to have a special word for the year. Do you do this every year? My word for 2013 is "Gentle". Your word is a very special one and Love is so important to us all. Oriel
