Abundance



Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace. 
Buddha


Halfway through January and how are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions?  That bad, huh?!  

Last year, I made a list of things I wanted to do; create more work, learn as much as possible, make new friends and contacts, read, dance, visit galleries, exercise, etc, etc.  I had it all set up with goals, timelines, action points.  Gosh, it was impressive, but in order to get everything I wanted done, it seemed I would have to timetable my life down to the last second.   By 3 weeks into the shiny New Year, I realised there was no way I could keep up with my clever plans and all I had done was created about 30 sticks with which to beat myself.  

Now, goals and action points can be really useful, but sometimes they can become the focus rather than the tools.  You can find yourself completing your actions successfully whilst losing sight of what you wanted to achieve in the first place.  I would say that most often, what we ultimately want to achieve is a state of mind, such as happiness, balance, security, independence, well being, accomplishment.  

When I recognised this last year, I immediately threw out my New Year’s Resolutions and decided that I would concentrate on just one word, which for me was Abundance.  This covered so much – abundance of time, friendship, money, energy, balance.  I lived my life within this context during the year and at the end of it, I had had a very successful business year and created another 2 years’ work; created new collaborations; danced at least twice a week; made loads of new contacts and had new clients.  By living in a mindset of Abundance, I felt I had enough of all the things I needed to achieve all the things I wanted.  I didn’t get quite as stressed out by self imposed “oughts” and “shoulds” and found myself open to all kinds of opportunities which I never expected.  

This year, I am keeping Abundance as my word and adding Forgiveness – forgiveness to myself for the days when I get a bit too action led.  

What is the word which will inspire you this year?
