“Raise your words, not voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.” – Rumi
Actually speaking, I was new to the philosophy of choosing a Word of the Year until got inspired by Laurel. And also I was enjoying my blogging break with my family during December. But this was urging me to decide upon the word for this year. And thought this will be more encouraging to make a return back for blogging.
I selected the WORD of the year 2016 as EMPATHY. I am sure EMPATHY has helped me in
- Understanding Others
- Coping with Diversity
- Fostering good, pleasurable and positive feelings
- Being Happier
- Achieving inner peace
- Connecting with people
- Improving relationship
- Empowering Myself
- Knowing GOD
I hope I went by the WORD by all means.
My Word Of The Year 2017 – Mindful – not because this is a trending buzzword now, but because I already love Yoga and Meditation. Also I started enjoying happiness and abundance by practicing Metta Meditation from last year. So naturally wanted to be mindful in every walk of my life in this year.
Being mindful is the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.
I love to be mindful in things I do on daily basis and this year I would like to explore more on :
- Mindful Eating
- Mindful Parenting
- Mindful Thinking
- Mindful Speaking
- Mindful Listening
- Mindful Reading
