A Proclamation

My personal proclamation for 2009 is....

I, Barbara, hereby adopt the following principles as a part of my everyday life.

1. Love deeply and unconditionally.

2. Appreciate this beautiful, abundant world.

3. Simplify, simplify, simplify.

4. Embrace my unique, creative self, without self-criticism.

5. Validate each person that my life touches.

6. Choose to find joy in all things....even adversity.


***What are the principles governing your daily life?


Don't forget the Valentine's Day Giveaway (details below in a previous post).

Barbara said...

Janna- It's all just universal truth. Isn't it?

Barbara said...

Vikki G- It's a statement I truly believe I should follow.

Pat's Place said...

Wow! At first your post would not let me post a comment and I wanted to tell you how wonderful I think your list is. My favorite is the SIMPLIFY one. I need to follow that in my life!

Barbara said...

Pat- I hope the glitch hasn't happened to other readers.

I MUST simplify this year. My life's too complicated. I'm afraid that I'm a type A personality on top of everything else. Serenity is also a good goal.

Angie Ledbetter said...

B, that's totally wonderful. I know you'll do it, and be blessed by it too.

Barbara said...

Angie- Many thanks.

Michele said...

Not only do your principles show wisdom, but I also like that you ask people to think about their own principles as well. I also need to simplify!

Lea and her Mustangs said...

A wonderful list Barbara. I hope to adapt to those things too.

Barbara said...

Michele- I think women try to do too many things...get too much done...multi-task, and therefore forget to relax and enjoy the journey. I am certainly one of those women.

Barbara said...

Lea- Wishing you the best on your own proclamation.

Jill said...

Barbara, I agree with what the others have said, It is a great list, and I hope that I could also follow the same principles that you have put on your list...thank you for sharing.
