Ali was one of the people I was excited to meet in person on this retreat. I’ve known her work for years as a scrapbooking queen/Life Artist and almost forgot we hadn’t met in person until I saw her at the airport. She was as inspiring in real life as she is on her blog. I love how straightforward she is, funny and tender, wise and confident, powerful and gentle.
On her blog today is a post about choosing a theme for the year, one word that acts as a focus. Since it’s halfway through the year, they are doing a checkin on how their theme is going.
I love the idea of doing our own Mondo Beyondo checkin. How’s it going folks? Have we all forgotten about our themes? I declared 2008 as my year of partnership and romance. I am learning so much in this area… this means that it is hard and wonderful all at the same time and there is room for lots of growth. Being a parent has called me out to be a better version of myself (the old ways don’t work anymore). I am called to be more generous, more patient, more loving… I also need to trust myself and Matt more than ever before. We are learning together. How is your theme going? If you’ve forgotten yours or never chose one, what can you declare now as your theme for 2008?
