My Word for the Year 2018

Greetings friends,

It’s a whole new year.  A clean slate.  I’ve been away for a while.  Many reasons.  Giving birth to my beautiful daughter. Buying a house. Wow!  Lots of life changes.  I hope to continue blogging about all these new adventures.

But even while I’m in transition, I wanted to make sure to share with you my new word for the year.  This is a word I’ve considered in the past, but this was the first time I was brave enough to choose it.  I thought words like “change” and “confidence” were difficult, but it turns out sometimes even words that sound positive by connotation can be the hardest to attach to ourselves.  Why?  Maybe on some level we don’t think we deserve it.  Maybe we feel selfish for even considering wanting something good for ourselves.  But I’m here to tell you that’s silly.  It’s a mind game.  The inner critic inside of us, otherwise known as fear, that is always trying to protect us, even if that means keeping us from something good.  Something we all deserve.  Something everyone can have.

So my word for the year is ABUNDANCE.  And let me shout it from the rooftops!  Because I deserve abundance, and you deserve abundance.  We can all have abundance, too.  That’s the secret.  It’s available to everyone.  And contrary to popular belief, there’s always enough to go around.

As usual, I’m seeing the effects of choosing my word for the year already.  The photo above is a tarot card I picked out for the day without knowing which one I was choosing.  My husband and I also recently purchased a charm for our daughter with a bunch of hearts on it.  The message behind it?  Abundance of love.  I can’t wait to see where else abundance shows up in my life.  Obviously, my life changes suggest abundance as well.  Don’t forget.  With abundance comes gratitude.  And also the opportunity to share it with others.  In case you’re still in doubt about how abundance works, I’m going to share with you one of my favorite mantras.  It’s fitting for this season.

Life is in a perfect balance of giving and receiving.

If you can keep this in mind, you’ll never be afraid to receive too much.  And it might make it easier to give to others too.  So say it with me.  ABUNDANCE!  Now go live an abundant life.

 

Check out my word for last year.  And here’s a list of my other previous words.
