Sunday whispers – Word of the year

First of all I want to wish you a wonderful and happy New Year. The least I can do, when I already missed wishing you a Merry Christmas.

The last weeks I spent rather quiet. Which felt so great! But the next time-out will be a little more planned and prepared so that you do not think I just have all forgotten about my newsletter, blog and shop. ;-)

How did you start the new year? With a big party? Or more quietly? Do you have many plans for 2014? Did you come up with New year resolutions?
Over the last years I have done what many do. I picked a bunch of resolutions that I wanted to work on. And then I had all forgotten about them by about February. At some point I decided that resolutions are just not for me. ;-)
But last year I tried something new and was actually pretty surprised how well that worked. I had picked a word for the year. Last year my word was „simplify“. And I actually did simplify all over the year. And in different aspects of my life. Honstely, I would have never thougth that one simple word can be so powerful!

Thrilled by my success I chose a word for this year. BRAVE. And just to make sure that I do not forget – I made myself a little reminder. ;-) Every time I look at the picture I am reminded to be more brave.

Do you have a word for 2014? If yes, would you tell me which one?  

Sunday whispers is a little series. My goal is to post something shortish but inspiring for you each Sunday – hopefully together with some art – so that you have a little incentive to slow down, reflect and think. I know how crazy weeks can be, but after all, it is Sunday. :-) Enjoy and let me know what you think. You can find the other Sunday whisper posts HERE.

    Liebe Ursula, ich finde Deine Sunday Whispers so klasse und freu mich sehr, dass Du sie jetzt wöchentlich veröffentlichst. Juhu!! Mein Wort ist “leicht”. In 2014 mache ich es mir nämlich leicht und meinem inneren Kritiker mache ich es schwer :)

    Liebe Ursula!
    Dir auch noch alles Gute für das neue Jahr! Das hast du so schön geschrieben! Und wunderschön gemalt! Toll!
    Mein Wort des Jahres ist “Glücklichkeit”. Weil es ulkig klingt, macht es mir schon gute Laune daran zu denken. :)
    Liebe Grüße!
