I am so happy that Honoré is hosting our monthly one word link up.
My word for 2020 is DWELL.
Shortly after deciding on this word, I saw this on Instagram
Those words really spoke to me. To delay, to linger, to remain, to inhabit, to reside. It felt like a good follow up to how REST had shown up for me in 2019. An opportunity to use what I had learned and extend it.
By nature I am a joiner, a starter. I don’t excel at follow through or finishing. I just join and start a whole bunch of stuff. I have reached a point in life where I want to have less. Less email subscriptions, less deadlines on the calendar, less books and yarn and fabric and clutter. What I want is to have just a few things that call me to linger, enjoy the process, and stay long enough to finish.
This month I have been dwelling in a bible study that is new to me and I have had to resist the pull of some other, easier, more familiar studies.
This month I am remaining (pretty much) with one knitting project and the excitement of seeing a finished object.
This month I am working on lingering on the yoga mat or the trail just a little longer and soaking up the calm of Shavasana or the evening sky.
I look forward to reading your one words posts. Be sure to visit Honoré for the link up.
