one little word 2011 - passion

yes. P.A.S.S.I.O.N.
this year i wish to live life passionately. it's a learning process. i know. it's a fun process i wish to embark and embrace in 2011.

passion in all that i do and all that i am. to love myself passionately, letting go of judgement and doubt about myself and accept every little bits and pieces of me. to be gentle and kind with myself. to be open and allowing. to live my truth. being authentic.

passion in my work, art and craft, photography, energywork and all my daily activities as well, i want to learn to see the mundane musings in new light, the light of passion. even if not all the time, whenever i am aware, i wish to invoke this new feeling in my daily doings.

passion in my relationship with gene. we are in our 10th year as a married couple. 10th year!! and we are still as silly as cats in sarongs. we are ready to start a new chapter in life if all goes well with the big move. pray for us. this will be a wild ride.

passion in living and enjoying life in every moment. i am feeling oh so thankful for who i am, even though i do not fully know who and what i am... yet, that does not mean i cannot be passionate just "being". it's like there is a kind of juiciness joy and love and gratitude in every action and beingness when i operate in this given mode. when i embrace and enjoy life, i am living in gratefulness. so living life with PASSION is like being grateful 24/7!

the abundance of 2010 will continue and expand into my passion for living a fully awaken life in 2011.

what's your one little word 2011?


  1. I never make any new year resolutions before, but why not think of something this year..


    Change in my life style ie so that Roy and I can live together with my hubby wherever he works.

    Change in my motherhood ie to conceive, to let Roy to have a little sister or brother.

    Change in relationship ie I could be more actively involve in seeing some good friends and share life story together.

    Change in me ie to be more patient and wiser facing everday challenges.

    Change in world environment ie lesser disaster and weird weather..


  2. I don't even remember last year's one..hehe..I think I wrote it here as a comment to your post. I think I won't choose any this year..I'll just continue last year's resolution which had not complete..

    Could your passion possibly also lead to a 'little' Alison or Gene? hehe..
