I am always a bit sad to miss the monthly Trance Dance, and especially so in January when everyone sets their intention for the year and dances it deeply into their bodies. Still, for the past few years, I have been participating from afar and that has been good as well.
So when I read Anita’s post on Tuesday, I asked her to pick a letter for me from the ones that had not been claimed on Monday night. In her email sent to me yesterday, I learned that my letter for the year is “B.”
Now don’t get me wrong. “B” is a perfectly good letter. It is even the first letter of my last name. But in my heart of hearts, it wasn’t the letter that I wanted. I was sending out for a “C” (Creativity, Communication, Courage, Compassion – all things I want and need more of). Or maybe even a “P” (Paint, Play, Pray/Meditate – which have been my standard resolutions for many years now).
But no, I got a “B” and had no choice except to embrace it.
Here is what I wrote, after quickly going through the above mental process. Oh 2012… that was the year of going Boldly, Beginning once again, and Being true to myself.
I still want all those other words as well, but the “B” words should help a lot. And while I was writing this, I thought of so many more lovely words.
