This is not just another #Blogging 101 assignment…well, I take that back. It kinda is.
But what this isn’t, is that, this is just not a meaningless One Word Challenge to just choose a word and be done with it. Rather, this is a word I have consciously chosen in response to Rebirth of Lisa’s to choose just one word…a word to meditate upon and be driven towards for the entire year. A word I would have to…need to use as inspiration throughout the year to make myself and the world better. (The “world” sounds too big here.)
Formal release from guilt, obligation, or punishment.
The act or an instance of forgiving.
an ecclesiastical declaration of forgiveness of sins
ABSOLUTION is my chosen word and I want to make it count.
It’s a very loaded word for me, although I must stress that this is not in a religious sense; but one that is to define my commitment to a process of change.
The picture above from my photo library seemed apt, and a befitting depiction of a conscious and deliberate thought – to embrace vulnerability, hope, joy, gratitude and a peace of mind so our souls won’t have to be exhumed if the wrongs remain unrectified.
It’s about letting go, cleansing toxicity and moving on to something great. It’s about casting intent to express myself for a higher attainment, or whatever that “higher attainment” means. I’m also looking (literally) at the word with some cynicism as it is messing with my head.
