On Facebook, my friend Julie, of Bravewriter, has taken up that idea of a word (theme, motto) for the year.
We choose our word for the year, we keep it close, it's a prompt, a reminder, something or someone to which we aspire.
But Julie has taken that idea one step further.
She has decided to, perhaps, post daily updates on her word and this her life. Daily updates on Facebook.
Julie's word is conscientious.
Mine is calm.
In the spirit of calm what did I do today?
Prayed at Mass, a reverent Mass, Benediction, Latin, a homily reminding us that yes, sin exists and yes, choices matter.
Mass and praying the Divine Office helped my inner calm.
As did being on holiday. Hanging out with family and a friend. And keeping my To Do list to a minimum.
Yes, I keep a To Do list on holiday.
I don't know how not to!
