As many of you know, I love to start the New Year with a new word…I find it so interesting how a word can be shown to you through out the year. I like choose a word that will help me with personal growth- something that defines your character as a human being…to become a better person.
It does not matter to me either way because it presents itself with personal growth and insight into being a better person!
This year, the word is WABI SABI わびさび…
Wabi is humble and simple, and Sabi is rusty and weathered.
It's simple, slow, and uncluttered-and it reveres authenticity above all. Wabi-sabi is flea markets, not warehouse stores; aged wood, not Pergo; rice paper, not shiny glass.
It celebrates cracks and crevices and all the other marks that time, weather, and loving use leave behind. It is underplayed and modest, the kind of quiet, undeclared beauty that waits patiently to be discovered.
It is a gift of time.
Wishing you all a beautiful New Year!
