Have you ever noticed that as soon as you buy a new car you start to see that care everywhere? The minute the idea of Brand X is in your mind, Brand X cars are passing you on the freeway, next to you in parking lots, and everywhere in between.
I feel like the same is true for my word of 2018. The last 3-4 books I’ve read have had the word possibility in them multiple times. I’m binge-watching a show (because it is a long weekend and today was my dedicated lazy day!) and what do I see? A quote that reminds me of not just possibility, but also my supporting phrase, “adventures that stretch“.
In past years, I have not noticed my words showing up literally all around me. In fact, I had to work to bring mindfulness and rejuvenation to light in my life. Challenge was a little more present in the world last year, but possibility is really taking it to a new level this year.
This makes me wonder:
- Have I selected a word that means more to me this year?
- Am I anxious for something new, and am therefore paying more attention to the world around me?
- Am I yearning for something?
- Is this just about timing?
- Am I ready to see every new possibility that is coming my way?
Just a few thoughts as I stretch myself on this long, lazy day.
Enjoy your weekend! Take care of yourself, others, and your community this weekend in honor of the legacy that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. left behind.
