this year's mantra

Yesterday I wrote about resolutions. Live with less (stuff) is my big one.


I wrote that it'd be my mantra for this new year. And almost immediately after publishing that, I thought, No that's not right. A mantra is not a resolution, not really (at least, not in this case). And maybe I should have a mantra? 


Immediately I knew, this would be the year I'd live by the code of Mary Oliver--her words would be the star I'd follow home.

Anyone out there with their own 2014 mantras?
