Mindfulness Monday {Setting an Intention}

It’s the time of year that many people set (and break) resolutions. I’ve never been much of a resolution kind of gal. But last year I came across something different. The idea is to choose one word, rather than setting a goal based resolution. I know this idea is out there in many different variations but what I do, called One Little Word, is by a woman named Ali Edwards. You can read more about the One Little Word project here.

Last year I chose the word present. I worked very hard to be more in the moment (as you may have noticed from my other Mindfulness Monday posts). I was amazed with the change and growth my word brought me in 2011. So I knew I was going to continue with One Little Word in 2012.

This year I have chosen TRUST as my word…or maybe I should say it chose me. Trust that things will happen in the right time. Trust in my abilities. Trust in other people and allow them to be in control (that one is hard for me). Trust that God is working in my life even when I can’t see where we are going. TRUST. To me, choosing a word is like setting an intention for your life. I am deciding to work on trust.

What do you hope for in 2012?

  1. Monica, I really like this post and how you are intent on growing yourself. Both ‘being present’ and ‘trust’ are great. This is good food for thought and I will think on this concept some more and get back to you…. but if I had to choose right now I’d be right with you on ‘trust’.

    • Thanks so much Sue! You have inspired me so much this year with your art! And our work together really brought my word “present” into clear focus for me. I guess it helped inspire my word choice for this year too. I never believed my dream of writing a book would come true. But now I can begin to “trust” that things will happen in their own time! 🙂 I trust your word will show itself to you. Can’t wait to see what beautiful work you come up with next!
