A few weeks ago my newsfeed was filled up with words. Weird, right? 😉
These weren’t just any words; many of my friends were picking THE WORD that they would try to live boldly and authentically throughout the year.
Perhaps even better than resolutions, one word could define your actions, intentions, and outlook for the next 12 months.
Finding your word can be easy, for some it’s more difficult. I wanted to wait until THE WORD just felt right. At first… I thought my word was Unleashed. It was someone else’s word (which is totally okay!) and it just STUCK for a while, yet I didn’t feel 100% sure about it.
So I kept an ear out for more words, spent time meditating, and just tried to be receptive to whatever word was trying to come through. Finally, I realized that the word that kept getting through, the one that aligned with my soul and idea of dreaming big had landed as my word for 2016.
Life, reimagined. This year isn’t starting where I would have expected it to be 6 months ago, a year ago, or 5 years ago. I’m not following the ‘traditional’ path that many follow after college.
Instead of feeling the need to have a plan, to know what’s coming, I’m embracing NOT KNOWING. I’m jumping into an untraditional career path that gives me freedom and flexibility with UNLIMITED income potential. I’ve REIMAGINED the plan that everyone says you have to follow.
I’m planning on a freeing, exciting, adventurous year full of ups & downs, adventures, new friends, and a roadtrip of incredible proportions. I have no idea what I’m getting into, but I can promise that it will take an abundance of being receptive to the REIMAGINED year.
I’m REIMAGINING my life and what I thought I wanted. The truth is I never really knew what *I* wanted, and I still don’t, but I’m sure as heck open to figuring it out.
Even bigger… I’m letting go of the self-imposed LIMITS and barriers that I’ve placed on myself. I’m REIMAGINING the kind of person I am MADE TO BE. I’m not letting OTHERS decide my path or my worth. I want to reimagine the limitless potential that this life has to offer.
Here’s to a reimagined 2016!
