As many of know, on Monday I typically do a post regarding messages from the universe, well, this week, the message from the universe is very personal because I plan to embrace for the entire year.
It is my belief that messages from the universe speak to me and remind me of something that is inside of me. When I first see them, I often don't even know what is really being advertised. Instead the message conjures emotions or thoughts relating to something that is going on within me; in my heart, in my mind, in my soul. I see them on billboards, in magazines, store windows, church plaques...everywhere.
The messages are all around us.
Last year I intentionally chose to start to build my creative life. I had read about Ali Edwards' One Little Word course (which you can find at Big Picture Classes and by clicking here) but it was August, I felt it was too late, and I had no idea what word I would choose. I can honestly say that my first reaction was, one word - how can I possibly embrace one word for the whole year? Giggle. At that time, I still decided that in 2012 I would choose a own word and take her course.
My word for 2012 chose me. It has surrounded me for months (I've been seeing it everywhere) and it is exactly what I need to work on at this stage of my creative life. My word is BELIEVE.
The definition of Believe is to accept something as true, genuine, or real. And, that pretty much sums up what I need to do during 2012.
I need to believe in myself, in my art, in my creative life, in the steps that I am taking, in the journey I am on, in my blog, in my photos, in my jewelry, in my dreams, in my goals, in me!
So, periodically you are going to see statements on my blog about what I believe. They may pertain to my creative life or they just might be about something random. Just know that they speak to me, they define me, and they are truly what I believe. Here are a few of examples:
I believe that friends
are the family
that you choose
I believe that true happiness
comes from feeding your soul
with your true passion
I believe that dancing
should be done on a daily basis
and that no one can do it wrong
I believe that
I am an artist
and that I can fly
Please visit my Fly Tribe's blog to continue the journey of discovering one little word. My Fly Tribe, the artist friends that I met in Kelly Rae Roberts' 2011 Flying Lessons course have jumped on the one little word bandwagon this year and we are sharing our words and our journey on a blog hop. Just click the badge below and then enjoy hopping around to everyone's blog.
