My friends and I (Flygirl, Miruspeg, Octamom and AVTCoach) are embarking on this year long joint venture this month.
We are working together to create posts about our word of the year. This was inspired by the Zen in You (Caroline) where we each picked a word to inspire, motivate or direct us through the year.
This month we have decided to use a form of poetry called an acrostic to express our take on our special word. The following are our contributions to this effort:
Miruspeg from Middle Aged Ramblings
B elieve in yourself.
A llow the positive energy to flow your way.
L ook, learn, laugh and Love.
A lways allow for a few stumbles along the way.
N ever give up or stop trying.
C limb that mountain, till you reach the top.
E njoy the journey.

Flygirl of Moments in Time
Freedom to enjoy life’s precious moments.
Acceptance of God’s plans.
Imagining the possibilities.
Trusting that my life is in God’s capable and loving hands.
Humbling myself as I relinquish control.
It is my prayer that each one of us moves closer toward our goal for the year. If you have not had a chance to go to Caroline and Zen in You, please do. Choose a word for growth or change. Let us know about it, too. There is strength in numbers.
