What's my word?

A few weeks ago I was looking through some old Artful Blogging publications and reading about choosing a word to frame my year. This isn't a new idea and it is already March, but I have been wanting to Blog about my word for 2010 for a few weeks.

The word I chose was Rebirth.

2010 was going to be MY year. A new blog, new jewelry and projects, health, the whole world opening up. Then I got stopped. My journal wasn't going so well, my camera broke, I had difficulty with editing my posts. I'm spending a lot of time working in my husband's studio, sorting out the last few lost years and then my Lyme Disease doctor broke the news that my infection had gotten worse. My Rebirth got stopped.

I let the past 2 weeks take over and have a say in who I am.
But then I got to thinking, birth is not easy. It is a hard process. I remember what real birth was like. It takes stamina, courage and a leap of faith that life will turn out. Rebirth is that process, too.
This is not going to be easy, but I can do this. I can recapture my creative process, find my voice and live into this year - today and everyday I am choosing Rebirth.
