2018 Word for the Year

I try to choose a word as my guide, my affirmation, my mantra each year, and this year I didn’t have to think twice because it popped into my head as soon as I thought about next year’s.

It’s thrive. I want to thrive. Not just monetarily, which is the first thing that comes to mind, but in all ways. In my health, my relationships, my day job, my healing work, my writing, my creativity (which has been sadly neglected for way, way too long)…everything. Every single aspect of my life.

I am acting as if today, Yule/Winter Solstice, is New Year’s Day (would make sense, wouldn’t it, as today the days begin to grow longer again here in the Northern Hemisphere) and made one big step towards improving my health. It’s a big step, a hard step, and something that I haven’t been to sustain in the past, so I’m not really going to get into it until around my birthday in March. 🙂

Akhilandeshvari by Tim Foley from Llewellyn’s 2018 Witches’ Companion.

~ I love that image, and the article by Stephanie Woodfield that talks about her. Her name means, “never not broken.” ~

I’m diving back into Leonie Dawson’s world, simply because she has been so wildly successful, and it’s really all been based on the fact that she never pretends to be someone she’s not. I tend to try to fit a persona that I think others expect, and that never goes well for me…hence the revisiting of her website. I can be me quite easily in my locked social media account, but not so well elsewhere. My goal is to change that.

I plan to move my healing website here, simply because of WordPress’s community aspect, which, sadly, Weebly does not have. I’ll be creating a static front page, then migrating the healing the content over here into individual subpages.

There’s more, but you get the jist. Do you choose a word for the year to guide you? What’s your word? Comment below!!
