So to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of starting the New Year with resolutions. There’s just something about the word ‘resolution’ that feels like regret, or the need to ‘wipe the slate clean,’ and that doesn’t feel good to me.
Two years ago, instead of resolutions, I started adopting a single word as my intention for the year.
2017: Discovery. I got engaged, I sold all my belongings and traveled full-time. I discovered who I was, who I wanted to be, and created a business built on passion, that lit my soul on fire.
2018: Action. I went relentlessly after the life I wanted to create.
I’m SO full of gratitude for 2018. It gave me some of the most extraordinarily beautiful moments of my life– I married the love of my life, strengthened old relationships and developed incredible new ones.
But it also tested me. I did a metric fuck ton of work on myself and my business. I can confidently say that I am a different person now than I was a year ago. I definitely felt some serious growing pains along the way, but it was all necessary to become the person I need to be to create the life, business, and impact I want to create in 2019.
And my word for 2019? Allow.
I dropped the need to control the outcomes and the bullshit that weighed me down.
I’m ready to allow the Universe to work her magic.
I’m ready to lean ALL the way in.
I’m ready to rise.
Happy 2019, loves. I hope this year brings everything you want it to. And if at some point, things get messy and the growing pains hit and it feels hard, just know you can always choose again.
You can always choose to rise. You can always choose to allow. Deciding to succeed isn’t limited to an arbitrary January 1 deadline 😉
