What would your day look like if you were aware of constructing it with one grateful thought at a time?
can do or dream you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

surprise to find a small box from a jeweler whose work I so admire but have
never met – BB Becker. He partners
powerful words with beautiful design and creates jewelry that embody the
concept of “wearing your word.” (bbbecker.com)
for unexpectedly receiving a gift of my latest book, “Live With Intention” was
an equally unexpected gift. Goethe’s
words rest on my shoulders and the pendant is above my heart. This reminds me
so very much of my liberal paraphrase of a text from Dueteronomy eleven: 18-21.
important words of your soul:
in the bank account of your heart, paint them on your soul, write them on your
hand, wear them like jewelry, let them lead what you teach and say, let them be
the spice in your conversation, may the be the road you walk, the light of dawn
that greets you and the lullaby that sends you to sleep.
As you join me on my journey you will discover that at the beginning of each week I draw a variety of words to inspire and instruct me. Today, the first day of a writing process I guide called Focus Phrase™, I draw the word “teacher.” The angel accompanying that word is the angel of “simplicity.” A good and immediate lesson for me as a teaching/guide. Then everything after that is all about love. Even my own words for the week are, “Loving is the most unmitigatedly courageous act I perform in a day.”
What words might guide you best in your week? Absent any piles of words to draw from – feel free to use mine! “All you need is love!”
