☆ Release [my word of the year]
Last year my word was bravery and it was really easy to figure out.
This year, I was a little slower to figure it out.
But in hinde sight, I can't believe it took so long. I mean it wasn't until I released the anxiety I had surrounding wee beasties birth, that she actually came.
It wasn't until I sat in the shower and cried that I released the chaos and churning emotions I had carried with me until New Years.
So it was kind of obvious that Release should be that one word for me this year.
So as I painted this reminder to let go, (which I have hung directly in eye sight at my desk, so I will see it daily), I thought about what in my life I needed to release.
I realised, I need to let go of some old hurts, some old behaviours, quiet a few rules + restrictions that I had placed on myself unknowingly, and release the control freak behaviour that I have developed of late.
I am learning to listen to my body + soul, to ignore the should ofs, could ofs + would ofs, and I am learning to listen to my intuition again, because I have ignored it for so long now.
So hopefully this year will be one of creation, expansion + development. Not one of regression or stagnation.
Do you have a word this year that you are aspiring to? I would love to hear your words + stories behind them.
