One word. Can you guess it? (My #Reverb10)

December 2, 2010

My word for 2010 should come as no surprise, considering this love campaign I’ve launched the last two weeks. But it IS something of a surprise. To me. That two weeks of well intentioned love missives to the big broad world, and to people in my smaller world, can turn an entire year into…

LOVE

That’s my word for 2010.

The year started with love upended and ugly, face down in a heap of rotted dreams. Hm, anyone detect a bruised heart, beaten ego, maybe a mote, a skosh, of duplicity, and the several seasons of dragonfire that followed?

Ahem.

That was love’s doing. Had I not ventured into it, and its nuclear fallout, I’d not have broken open the cauterized wounds that came before. Love, all of its hopes…and contusions…brought me to the summer, in which I fell deeply madly in love with my Lilith peeps, and to the fall, which has me levitating with joy for the Story Changers participants in my new invitation to fall in love. With the one, this time.

Yep. I’m calling in the one.

Bring it, love. I’m listening.

Which makes next year’s word: LIGHT.

If love breaks apart bad beliefs, and reeducates them, then light will keep them clear, keep me clear-headed, will remind me to BE LIGHT myself, instead of sink, heavy, into darkness of circumstance. Light will help to break apart what obstacles to love remain, and will remind that love…is light…when you give into it and let it do its job.

I hear ya, sister. 2010 has been about *opening* for me… opening in readiness for 2011 to bring more LOVE into my world. finally. at last. it’s been long enough. I freakin rock at being alone – rock it, love it, own it – and now it’s time to see how I fare at being back in the love game :)

Last week I heard this from a very wise woman, “that which we prepare for will emerge.” In thinking about the holiday season, she challenged us to see this as a time of birth, of something new, of bringing LIGHT into our lives. (I love the change in the scenery when I think about Christmas with this metaphor in mind.)

Here’s to preparing the way for a new way of being, a new success and much more light in my life.

Thought of your comment today, Sheri, when I wondered at my general unrest. Will call it labor pains. Thanks for your sharing your insight (and light).
