Inspiration

I am starting a new series in my blog called ‘Inspiration’. I post several things i found inspiring that week including art, quotes, tips, websites, books, people, and music.  It is a place to reflect on the week and give a shout out to things that pushed me in the right direction. To check out other ‘Inspiration’ posts follow the tag: inspiration.

Quote:

 “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s           indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”

I recently discovered a new blog that i enjoy visiting. The blog is called Analyfe and on it Erin recently discussed her word for 2013 being connect.   Which reminded me that i haven’t posted about my word for 2013 yet. My word for 2013 is strong.

I was on holiday in Malaysia for the new years. I remember sitting in the hotel a few hours before midnight hearing the crowds gather around the Petronas Towers to watch the fire workers. I wanted to finish writing what 2013 is going to be all about for me. Somehow it does not count unless i plan it all out before midnight. I wanted to chose a word to focus on, a word that wil help me reach my goals. For 2013 i want stronger relationships, beliefs, dreams. I want to be stronger. To stand up for my thoughts, to pursue my dreams, to my push my limit. To be stronger than the fear of failing. I want to be strong mentally, physically, and emotionally. I want to be forgiving, accepting, and loving.

List the Words That Touch Your Soul

I decided to participate in Moorea Seal‘s Project 52. I’m a little late to the party, but hopefully I will catch up. I loved her description of the project and how it works:

“I love lists!  So I thought it would be fun to start a series on my blog for 2013 that focuses on List making, lists for fun, lists for self discovery, you name it.  And it’s all about participation!  Each week I’ll have a new list prompt for you to download.  I think it could be really fun to print out a page each week, collect them through the year and then bind them together at the end of the year as a little memento of 2013.”

The first prompt is:  List the Words That Touch Your Soul

Words that Touch My Soul

Words that Touch My Soul

I used ABCya! to create the word cloud. I think it showcases the words i chose in a more artistic form.

The words i chose revolved around:

  • The people i love and my relationship with them: Family, love, trust, loyalty
  • The things i love: Reading, writing, music
  • How i see the future: Edge, horizon, purpose, lost, hope, light, chances
  • Gentle reminders: Memories, relaxation, care, live, pray, breath
