tranquilosophy: week 2



This complimentary program is a way for us to stay motivated and engaged in 2015. Each week I'll send inspiration your way via Love Notes early in the week and here on Thursdays.

To find support, join the private Facebook group designed to create community and call in to the seasonal Tranquilosophy podcasts to connect live. Last week's "New Year, New You" seasonal podcast recording is available.


This is my gift to you. Thank you for reading, listening, and supporting Tranquility du Jour.


Week 2: Choose Your Theme

When you reflect on what you'd like to see more of this year, is there a word, phrase, image, or quote that comes to mind?

For some, choosing the right word can feel daunting, as if they're stuck with something for an entire year, so it better be perfect.

That's why I like the idea of choosing a theme, something that is fluid and broad. Whatever you choose to work with, it can become a beacon for your day-to-day actions and decisions.

Since I've been doing this exercise, I've worked with themes of spaciousness, simplicity, and beauty. After reusing the word spaciousness repeatedly for a few years, I'm delighted to share that it has become much more of a reality. It's like planting a seed of intention every single day courtesy of the attention the theme receives.

Same with simplicity. I continue to focus on paring down to what is essential. Although there is much more room for growth, this theme is an umbrella for how I use my time and energy.

Beauty is something I seek to infuse in all that I do—from lighting candles in the morning to surrounding myself with fresh flowers to sealing snail mail love notes with washi tape. Beauty will remain a theme for years.

Have you chosen a theme for 2015? What is something you'd like to see infused into your days? If you truly lived your theme this year, how would things be different?

Share in our Facebook group and watch for Week 3 of 52 Weeks of Tranquility delivered to your inbox early next week. Bisous. x
