The holiday season came and went like a flash. It was fun and very relaxing and I wouldn’t have minded for it to have continued for a little longer. We just celebrated our Armenian Christmas on the 6th and usually our tree comes down straight after this date. However it is still up and bright…
With all the buzz of the New Year, new resolutions are made and new intentions are set. I don’t have any resolutions as such but I have dreams and projects that I wish to start working on this year. I am so excited by it all.
I am also excited to reveal my word for 2013. My word for 2012 was ALLOW. This word couldn’t have been more apt, I allowed myself to grow, to go towards the fear and to do things I wouldn’t have normally done before. I cannot recall how I came to decide on my word for 2013 but I find it so right for what I want to do this year.
Cultivate – It is not a delicate word, nor a beautiful one. It means ‘work’ to me and that is what I intend to do this year.
