This year I picked my one word for the year a little bit differently. I was doing a visualisation trying to get guidance in one area of my life and the word that came up as the answer was
At first it freaked me out. Ease? Wasn’t everything worthwhile supposed to be difficult? And what would people think if I mentioned ease on my blog, that I was lazy and didn’t want to do anything?
But the more I thought about it the more it excited me, to the point that I chose ‘ease’ as my one guiding word for the year and not just the area that I was initially looking into.
I could achieve what I wanted easily instead of struggling. Would that going to make my achievements less satisfying?
I could make decisions easily and confidently? Would those be good decisions?

I want to find out. I’ll go for ease this year and see where it takes me.
I will be posting updates during the year – please sign up for my newsletter so that you don’t miss a thing.
Maybe things can be easy and at the same time happy, rewarding and moving forward.
Update from 30 Jan: I’ve just realised that this post has been heavily influenced by Danielle LaPorte’s Fire Starter Sessions. I read the book more than 6 months ago; clearly the idea of ease as a guiding principle has been brewing in my mind for a while.
