I blogged yesterday about my "One Little Word" for 2012: home. Just like last year, I have also chosen an intention on which to focus. My intention is "Don't give up before the miracle happens." My yoga instructor said this last month when we were getting into a particular twisting pose and we needed to hold it for a few seconds before everything slid into place. Although the position felt uncomfortable, I took a deep breath, relaxed into the pose and felt . . . fantastic. I was so glad that I didn't give up before I reached that state of repose. And I thought the idea behind that statement was something on which I could focus this year. Sticking with it, not giving up, trusting in myself that my effort would pay off. Since then, I googled the quote and found that it's actually part of the Twelve Step Recovery Program. And sometimes the butt of sarcastic jokes. But, I still like the quote and what it stands for.
So, it's my intention for 2012 - something to come back and remember and focus upon from time to time. Have you heard this quote before? What do you think of the quote?
