And the word is...

on NYE
This marks my 5th year with a word set as my intention and little touch stone to come back to and begin again throughout the year.  In yoga when you lose your breath, you take child's pose to come back.  My word will be my forehead on the mat, breath in and out of my body, the slow and steady gaze at what truly matters. 

2012 will be the year of Nourish.

I like that it's an ish word.  That was one of my favorite things I noticed when I first moved to California, people here say 'ish' a lot.  So this year, I'm having an ish year which I think insinuates a little flexibility and we could all use some of that!

nour·ish/ˈnəriSH/

Verb:
  1. Provide with substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition.
This year I'll nourish my body, mind and spirit.  I'll eat life giving foods, drink more green juice and listen to my body.  I'll keep growing and learning and surrounding myself with people that inspire me.  I'll nourish my clients with support, empathy and information.  I'll nourish my relationships so they can continue to grow.  I'll nourish the Campaign for Confidence, keep spreading the word and doing the work.  I'll nourish the life-long calling to live near sand and sea as we move to San Diego and begin a new chapter.  I'll nourish my need to simplify as we downsize to a smaller home.  I'll nourish my body with beach walks, beach jogs and yoga.  And I betcha 2012 nourishes me right back with open arms, adventures, dreams becoming reality, travel, abundance, a spot on the Ellen show to talk about Campaign for Confidence, the perfect cozy-clean-accepts cats- 2 bedroom cottage near the beach (doing a little creation here :), a job Cliff loves and a deep feeling that all is right, it's all unfolding as it's meant to, that the best is now and the best is yet to come.

Let the nourishment begin!

Did you pick a word?  I'd love to hear it!

Lots of love,
Lacy

Hi Lacy ~ I have been a follower for quite sometime ~ Love your thought processes ~ Love your blog ~ Love your energy ~ Happiest of New Years to you and yours ~ I have also chosen a "word" - Mine is CREATE - I had a blossoming year in 2011 with my photography and writing and hope to only make this grow in 2012!

Oh I love your word! It will help guide you through a wonderful year! I may just be a bad follower, but I didn't know you were headed to San Diego! I have visited there once and quite loved it. :)

My word this year is INSPIRE. As described here: http://echarlotte.blogspot.com/2011/12/satisfied-sigh-for-2011.html

Happy New Year!

That is a great choice! People so often need to be reminded that they need spiritual as well as physical nourishment! I always love your word of the year, but I am too indecisive to choose just one word.

i'm stealing your word, i like the meaning, and being that 2011 was all about self healing, i think it's appropriate for 2012.
i've been lurking for a couple of months and i just have to say, i find you very inspiring. thank you. <3
