|2015: Joy is the Word|
I can't say my heart's really in this right now.
One Word 365One Word 365 suggests that instead of New Year's Resolutions we choose one word to make the theme of our year, to focus on daily in whatever way encourages an increase in or fulfillment of its essence.To further such an aim they have provided a kind of social network/support group for those who'd like to give it a try.
I'm thinking of joining and if I do I'm choosing JOY as my word.
For obvious reasons I think. And the pun is fully intended.
JOY because it is the light at the end of the tunnel of depression which has been my struggle for decades.
JOY because it is my name and thus my sense of self, my identity, my life theme, my aspiration.
JOY because, whether having lost myself stole my joy or having lost my joy hid my self from my sight, seeking after either joy or Joy has to be the path toward reclaiming both and I've come to believe I can't have one without the other.
I'm hoping that will come.
Truly, my heart has not been in much of anything for months.
Not even in me.
Well then, one word
One day at a time
It's worth a try.
