December 1 – reverb11 – Palabra (Word)

Encapsulate your 2011 in one word. Why that word? What would you like your word to be for 2012? Why?

Show up. Step on the mat, sit at the desk, execute yoga poses and breathe consciously. Write words on the page and keep breathing consciously. By doing so, you automatically shape time. You have chosen to make time for creative expression. You have prioritized yoga and writing above all else, for the duration. This is a gift to your best self.

If you get, give. If you learn, teach. ~Maya Angelou
