after much thought, i finally decided on my "word of the year"= nourishment! last year (well mid-year really) i chose abundance and i feel it really happened in every aspect of my life, including dress size unfortunately;)

i feel sick for the 3rd time with a cold this winter, which makes me stop and think about what lesson am i learning? well first to slow down and take measures to boost my health... which led me to nourishment of my mind, body and soul.

v nourish [ˈnariʃ, (American ) ˈnə:-]
to cause or help to grow, become healthy etc.
adj nourishing
giving the body what is necessary for health and growth

an alphabetized (bc i'm funny like that) list of what nourishes me that i want to bring into 2011...

Wishing you nourishment in 2011 Mati!
Love your organized list, all good things. I've just barely started yoga, it's a lot harder than it looks. Hope you feel better soon. :)

I too have been sick (still am a bit) so I know it influenced my choosing KIND (kind to myself, kind to others, kind to the world).

Best wishes for those things that nourish your body, mind, heart and soul.!

My word is 'resolve' in the sense of determination. It took a while to come to me but I am absolutely attached to it now.

I love your list of nourishing things, and love the you put them in alphabetical order.

"to honor"

Know you are not alone with your struggle with good health. I too have been ill the third time this winter! Ugh I found neti pot, rest, vitamins, acupuncture, and pho do the trick. Loved this blog! Good health to you!

So excited by all those inspiring images and by your list of support words. Good idea. My word for the year is truth...not making excuses, not telling myself things that are not true...finding and honoring the truth that I am strong, beautiful, capable, and that good things do happen!
Thanks for the inspiration.
