What’s your theme for the year ahead? I’m All In….

Just a few days left to get complete with 2014.

Have you taken some time to review, complete, and release all that happened in 2014?

The good, the bad, everything? I have a handy workbook that will help you do just that; thanks to everyone who downloaded it!

All In in 2015

Once you’re complete, look forward and find your theme — your keywords — for the year ahead.

I’m All In.

This last year brought new challenges in my business and in my health. I got sicker than I’ve ever been, had two hospitalizations. My business, of course, slowed down as I recovered and learned in entirely new ways how to manage my resources and meager reserves.

What wonderful opportunities for acceptance, and surrender, and gratitude!

I’m All In for 2015.

Even though I now know in a deeper, completely unexpected, and very profound way that I don’t get to choose what it is I will get to deal with, process, and accept. What is given to you to walk through is your jewel, your gift, your treasure, no matter what. And when you stop resisting and get to acceptance, you can even end up in sincere gratitude for everything, even the really hard stuff. Much to my surprise, I got grateful for the tough and scary stuff, and that gratitude — as it always does — changed everything.

What is your theme for 2015?

I’d love to know, please share with me in the comments.

Full Moon in Cancer

Sunday, January 4th
14º31′ Cancer
8:53 pm Pacific
11:53 pm Eastern

Some call Sunday’s Full Moon the Quiet Moon, or the Moon After Yule. It’s the first Full Moon of 2015, and it’s in Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. Emotions, your heart, all are going to be tugged by this Full Moon.

Complete 2014 with love, acceptance, and intention; and release everything — even what was incomplete. Name and embrace your theme and keywords for 2015. These are the best rituals you can do this week. Allow Sunday’s Full Moon to meet you standing in your sovereignty.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression. Want to know a little more about me and my journey? Explore the site. Read the blog. Connect with me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

  1. “All in”…Sue, I love that! Kind of says it all, I think. And fits where I am at as well, so might take it for my own, with a few modifications.

    For me, the year ahead is about going deeper than I’ve gone before, which means increasing visibility and vulnerability. It’s about really planting my flag and showing up in service to those who have struggles I know I can support them in and guide them through. Keywords would be:
    Purposeful Action
    May we heal and serve and connect and dance wholeheartedly through the year ahead.

    • Thanks, Sharon… I was happily infected with the All In concept by something someone wrote in the Quest2015 conversation. Happy to share it; there’s an unending supply of All to go around, isn’t there?

      I love your keywords!

      Blessed be.

  2. All in Sue! I took advantage of winter solstice and the new moon to set my intentions for 2015. I released everything that no longer worked or added value to my life (you can read my blog for that) AND my word for 2015 is FREEDOM.

    Freedom from doubt. Freedom from should. Freedom from expectations.

    Happy New Year!

    • Laurie, that’s inspiring. The hair’s on my neck stood straight up as I read it….

      New Year’s blessings to you!

  3. I’m all in! I began a time of reflection about my personal life and the direction I want my business to go over Thanksgiving… and that direction is all about Truth.

    Lovely post.

  4. Sue,

    Yes, I’m all in too–for what 2015 brings. For life, no matter what year, is full of ups (published my books in 2014) or downs (lost my mom in June 2014), allows us to grow, learn, stretch and sometimes just BE. We get to choose how we take in 2015. I choose to be there (all in) and share the inspiration of life lessons along the way.

    • Teresa, your words are a balm to my sore body and tender heart, after getting a kick in the pants (got rear-ended — hard — in my car).

      I get to choose, and I choose gratitude.


  5. I set a theme every year and for 2015 it’s “Intentional Living.” In addition to my vision board with my annual goals I’m in the process of setting up a new Pinterest board about my theme where I’ll be sharing quotations, tips on living intentionally and inspirational stories.

    • Marquita, that’s powerful. I just looked for you on Pinterest, can’t find you. I’d love to connect with you there as well.


  6. What a thought-provoking question. I would say love is my theme for 2015 and key words include faith, kindness, gratitude, joy, and peace. Thanks for inspiring all of us in spite of all the challenges you faced last year. May 2015 bring you good health, happiness, and success!

Chime in!
