i was reading christine kane's post about choosing a word to focus on during 2009 and i thought it was a wonderful idea instead of setting up goal lists which, for me, often end in failure. however, a well chosen word to focus on all year.....i can DO that! of course, i never make things easy for myself and, for the past few days, i have been mulling two words over in my head. so.....today, i let the universe decide for me. i gave each word a 'heads' or 'tails' title and i flipped a coin. heck, why didn't i think of that days ago?! so, heads won out and my word for 2009 is.......JOY!
in case you're dying of curiosity, the other word under consideration was - allow.
after reading a new earth by eckhart tolle earlier this year and then participating in the blog book club in november where we read soul coaching by denise linn, i felt like i was on the brink of change. most recently, i have been reading and watching a lot of books/DVDs by esther and jerry hicks re. the teachings of abraham and i have been hooked. two of the main things that abraham focuses on is living joyfully and the art of allowing. as joy won the coin toss, i plan to focus each day on things that make me feel joyful. in doing this, i trust that the law of attraction will see to the rest and bring me more of the same.

as you can see from the 2009 happenings in my side-bar, i'm already chalking up a lot of positive and creative things to do in 2009 and i'm sure they will all bring me lots of.....JOY!
