One Million Love Letters to Myself, A Theme for 2013
Love Makes Your Soul Crawl Out of Its Hiding Place. – Zora Neale Hurston
My long ass commute to work is filled with randomness. Trying to predict which person looks like they will be getting off at the next 2 stops so I can sit down; checking my email as I go over the bridge – well at least The Daily Love; listening to my limited iTunes playlist; napping; & generally just watching the people. On one of these rides I was forced to dig through my feelings about a number of things that I’ve been contemplating. After attending a conference for work I realized a couple of things. The first is that I love science and am really excited to learn more about epigenetics (we al LOVE jeans/genes). The second is that it’s been a long journey and I love being committed to translating science for communities of color and low-income. All this made me realize something. I feel great and I’m pretty happy. Why not commit to LOVE as my theme for 2013? I am committed to:
Loving my financial health enough to remain committed to paying off my debt
Loving myself even more than I did in 2012
Loving life enough to live for doing the things that make me feel good in all parts of my life.
Not too long ago I wrote about being committed to my sanity. I remain committed and because of that I have to do the things that I love.
I’ve been thinking a bit about my mantra for the upcoming year and this is what I have so far.
I love life!
I love me!
I celebrate we!
What do you think? What is your theme for 2013?
