Yesterday, Ellie was sitting on my lap and asked me what my necklace said. I explained it said, "Wildness" and that it is my word of the year. I talked about how I'll be inviting in more wildness in my life.
She nodded in that way a three year old does when she's listening and thinking and taking it in.
Then I asked her, "What is your word of the year? What do you want this year to be like for you?"
And she looked me right in the eyes and said, "My life is good and calm and kind."
"Those are the things you want to invite into your life this year?"
I think wildness and good + calm + kind are going to be fantastic companions this year.
(And pairing this story with this photo this might have been the moment I decided to get back to Project Life. Yes.)
