the power of 3…
I like threes.
I like things in groups of threes- not twos- arrangements, that is. And, don’t read anything x rated into that comment either…
Especially coincidences. I like them in threes too.
So last week when I read a random post about random words for the year, I thought it sounded like a cool idea and I started thinking about my word could be.
I looked at the intentions on my pinboard. There’s one on there about travel and there’s one on there about earnings. So I tossed around the word “abundance”.
Then I tossed it out again.
You see I have a few doubts about the Universe’s understanding of intentions, and I have plenty of abundance already on my tummy and bum. I figure the point of this is not to have a word with a full set of fine print attached to it.
‘Hey Universe- my word is abundance. When I say abundance, I don’t mean an abundance of problems, rejections from publishers, credit card debt or tummy fat. What I really mean is an abundance of great stuff- things like passion, creativity, travel, success, money. Do we have a deal?’
‘Sorry Jo, I tuned out at abundance- what was the rest?
Get my problem?
Then the words focus, willpower and commitment rolled into my head…and very quickly out again.
They’re all very nice words, but feel a little too, I don’t know, Saturnian to me- a little too serious and grown up. I wanted my word to feel fun and reflect an almost limitless potential. I wanted my word to feel like I wanted to feel. I wanted my word to feel like the arrows under the earnings intention make me feel.
So I chose it.
Not 2 hours later I read a post from a Facebook/writer friend who’d asked the question that I’ll be asking you: “what’s your word of the year?”
So I wrote it on her page. It looked good there.
Then today came number 3- a post from The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl on, you guessed it, her word of the year.
So I figured I had better write about it.
My word is…..
Two letters- I would have liked three, but it says it all. The sky really is the limit.
So…what’s your word?
