For the month of December, I’m participating in Reverb12, responding to prompts reflecting on my year. If you’d like to participate, visit Daily Angst.
Prompt for December 6th: Intention: What were some of your mantras from 2012 and how did you come by them? Will they remain the same for next year – if not, what new ones will you set?
My mantra for 2012 is: Breathe, Let it Go, and Simplify.
Breathe: I tend to react, maybe overreact, to things, and I forget to take a moment to breathe. And think about how I truly should respond to the situation.
Let it go: As I wrote yesterday, this is a big issue for me.
Simplify: I need a reminder, on occasion, to take pleasure in simplicity.
For next year, I’m not sure what my mantra will be. Perhaps it will stay the same since I’m still working on these issues. Maybe it will change a little. But I do think a mantra of some kind is important.
