Day 23: introducing lovemore mondays!

23 Jan

Today welcomes the very first installment of a new series:
Lovemore Mondays!

As you know, I entered this year determined to be fearless.  Easier said than done.

And, that is precisely the problem.
Every time I say the word fearless, the more I don’t want anything to do with it.  I don’t want to focus on FEAR or come from a place of LESS in my life, and I certainly don’t want either to dictate how I approach this year.

So, after searching for a new, better, more descriptive word, to no avail,  I’m making up a new one (and, really, who cares if the dictionary doesn’t agree?).

The new word is:  Lovemore

Lovemore. Lovemore!  Lovemore!!!

I’m getting used to the sound of it.
And, I kind of like the way it rolls off my tongue.

Because I want to find LOVE in everything I do and to add MORE of the things I cherish to my life.

So, while this year will hopefully help me get over some pesky fears (like spiders and failure and conflict) it’s not where I want to hang my hat.

I will hang my hat on lovemore instead.
Every Monday will now be a Lovemore Monday where I share a story about LOVE.  And, I can’t think of a better way to start off the week than with a little more of that powerful ingredient.

Today’s love story is about words.
Because words are medicine.  Words are powerful.  Words are how we begin to build our dreams.

That’s why I love the new word lovemore.

Just making up a simple new word felt thrilling, and a little like that endorphin rush of falling in love all over again.  In fact, it felt almost like I was in control of my life, my decisions, my time and my path.

Oh, wait …I am.  We are.

And, that’s why…
I. Love. It.
