OMG it’s finally that time! The post where I share the most important word of the upcoming year. If you are just joining in on my journey, every year, I chose a word that will basically serve as a theme and anchor for my growth and learning.
In 2015, my word was Courage.
In 2016, my word has been Trust.
These two words and the lessons that they taught me have launched me into my purpose, but really made me work hard!!
For 2017, I am doing something unprecedented (maybe?)….
I AM HAVING TWO WORDS FOR THE YEAR!!!!!
Honestly, I couldn’t pick just one of these words, and they totally both came to me intuitively, so there must be something important for me to learn through them both. I have honestly had such a difficult 2 years and have worked so hard, that I am kind of going in a new direction with my theme.
Could you possibly guess what they are?
Ok, no guesses?? Well, here they are!
After 2 years of very hard work and working through many blocks, I am hopefully going to give myself a year of joyful lessons.
I chose nourish because it encompasses self-care entirely-mind, body, and spirit. I am going to focus on doing as many things as possible to nourish my whole self. These things include: monthly massages, eating foods that energize and fuel me, not weigh me down, moving my body in ways that bring me joy, listening to music, taking hot baths, reading, traveling, saying no to things I don’t want to do so I can say YES to things that I do want to do, not being so hard on myself, hiring a maid, snuggling with my husband, and so on and so forth. I think you get the idea 😉
Now, on the other hand, in order to do these things I also need to learn how to RECEIVE. In fact, the Universe can only give you that which you are capable of receiving, so by practicing receiving, you are showing the Universe that you are ready for all the gifts that are meant for you. This can show up in many ways, from accepting compliments, to being open to new ideas/inspiration that comes to you, to picking up change on the ground, all the way up to accepting gifts, accepting help, allowing people to take responsibility for themselves so you don’t have to do it, to manifesting money or experiences, etc.
I have laid the foundation for abundance and success the past few years, and these two words for 2017 will catapult me even further into living my dream life. After all, we can choose the way we want to live our life at any moment, and unfortunately, the past few years I have been neglecting that fact. I have been stuck in sadness and grief, and I hope to not continue that negative mindset any longer.
I am so excited to see what is in store for 2017. <3
Sending you so much love, joy, and success.
