Theme of the Year

If you had to pick a theme for this year, what would it be? Mine is: To Put Life First.

Work always gets done, no matter what. It’s the other things in life that tend to slip away. So I'm committed to change and put life first this year. What haven’t you given time to?

Goals are great. A theme however, can carry you through days when you don’t know what to focus on or it's unclear what is most important.

What is your theme this year?


It is the last day of August & I'm just reading this.

My change theme of 2008, has only became paramount as the months have gone by. . . Me taking care of ME!
Me learning to love ME, & then I can love others.
Me believing in ME, & then others.
Me forgiving ME. Being able to forgive all those who've harmed me & ask forgiveness of those whom I have harmed.
Me trusting ME, and then learning to trust others.
How can we fully participate in life otherwise?
