For the past 4 years, I have chosen a word of the year. Or more accurately the word has chosen me. Last year my word was TRUST. I had to learn to trust myself again; trust my instincts; trust in other people; trust in the Universe; trust that I was on the right path. Looking back at 2014, Trust was the perfect word. I did learn to trust my instincts, I listened to my gut (or maybe they were my angels & guides, right Grace?!) and I made some necessary changes to put myself on the right path. I moved to a place that has opened up my social circle to include people I probably never would have met. I've become more involved coordinating events and bringing people together, which is something I had always done but had lost that part of me for awhile. I feel like I'm back on track. I'm so much more comfortable in my own skin and am trusting myself and my choices.
This brings me to my word for 2015, LOVE! Again, this word has chosen me. For awhile I wanted the word to be Abundance but nope...it kept coming back to LOVE. Doesn't it always come back to love though? I ended my year trying to spread more love, to myself and to others. I'm more open...to meeting new people, trying new things, having new experiences, and most important, to finding LOVE...the romantic variety. I am ready! How do I know I'm ready? Because I am really comfortable being single, I enjoy my own company, I have learned to love myself and I am taking care of myself - emotionally, financially and physically. I don't NEED to have a partner in this life, I WANT one. I know because I'm ready to receive love in my life. I've been really good at giving love but found it harder to receive it. I'm ready because I know I will choose only the best and am not willing to settle (any potential partner will choose only the best too). I'm ready because I'm open. Open to the possibilities, open to the disappointments, open to the good, open to the bad, and most important open to falling in love.
Yes, this will be the year of LOVE for me...and I hope for you too!
