2024 - word of the year
I am a ritualist about the new year. I imagine I wrote about this back on January 1st, 2023, as well. Part of my routine, after reflection, meditation, writing, vision board, and more - I determine what my word, or 'theme' of the year will be. It is a simple way to bring me back to presence and focus that the new year ritual generates for me. For 2024, building upon 'listen to my heart' ('22) and worthy/worthiness ('23), I selected, trust in you. This is meant to represent both the God I believe so deeply in and the times I should give myself this confidence. Perhaps extending to others, as well. Believing and faith are at the core of my being, but I do not always practice them in a way that allows me true peace and a sense of calm. I intellectually know the value of letting go and just being, but my empathetic tendencies and dare I suggest the duty of responsibility can veer me, my emotions off path a bit. Saying trust in you in my thoughts, or out loud brings a sense of empowerment, a comfort that I am not alone, respect for others and freedom of choice. As with most January's, I am energized and hopeful - it is going to be a good year!
Hmmm, trust in you…day 291!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
