Wow Deb, powerful words! So good to have you recognize you need to slow down...and that you're committed to working it more slowly in 2009.

Sounds like your job is a lot like mine. I spend all day reacting, and driving forward, as fast as I can. I make hundreds of decisions every day, and by the end, I am exhausted.

I'm going to work to savor life a little more too.

Awesome reminders! So glad I could give you what you needed when you needed it. Keep BEING great! To our success!

Hi Debbie, Great to hear from you. I like the idea of "words for 2009." I did my usual New Year's Day reflection and looking ahead with my husband. At the end as I sat with it all, two words came: appreciation and allowing. I know that appreciating what I have is something I will focus on this year, especially with all the turmoil around these days. And allowing? I have the sense it is about allowing increase but, well I think I'll know more about this one next year. Best to you.


Phil - I appreciate your sharing that your job is similiar to mine in terms of the fast, reactionary pace. It makes me feel a little less crazy to know I'm not alone.

Barbara, I'm looking forward to hearing how the "allowing" plays out in your life this year.

To all of us - may we move forward with intention and joy!


Hey Deb

What a wonderful AND inspiring post.

I wrote a blog today around my word....

~*~ Gratitude ~*~

Your words... ease and savor.. Hmmm both delicious.
