I thought about it and said "open." At the time I chose the word and thought it was apt because I've always tried to be an open-minded person and open to new things.
That was quite awhile back- over 7 years ago.
I think this word is still fitting. I see it as a sort of basis for my "life mantra." I always try to be open to new opportunities, meeting new people, learning new things, new experiences, hearing different opinions and to be open to what's hidden- the energy in the universe and possibilities waiting to be discovered or noticed.
It's important to me, especially as a creative person, to stay open to all that is around me, which means being aware and attuned enough to pick up on promise and opportunities- which are always floating around- if you'd take the time to notice. You just never know where a connection that has been made, a seed planted, idea sprung, or any life experience will lead you.
