I’ve long told myself that I’m a homebody, and as a Cancer, that’s true, but I think it’s also kept me from pursuing new friendships or connecting with people both online and in real life more.
This year I’m stepping out of my shell.
My word for 2019 is connection, and I want to focus on connecting more with myself, other people and Spirit/Source/the Universe.
I crave deep connection with others, and this will be my year of making that a priority. I’m going to focus on how I can really connect with people, not just make small talk and continue on with our days.
From being on this spiritual journey, I’ve gotten better at realizing when I’m unhappy with something in my life. As I’ve been working on myself, I’ve noticed that I don’t connect with others very much.
That hurt and surprised me once I noticed it because the one thing I want to do in life is connect with others, and I haven’t been doing it or making it a priority lately. That’s changing starting now!
I feel it in my soul how badly I want to truly connect with other people, and I know that’s what I’m meant to do with this life, whether it’s through this blog or my career or something else.
I’ve stifled my own voice for many years, and now I’m finally starting to come into who I believe I truly am. It hasn’t been an easy journey, but I’m grateful for that. The next step in my spiritual and personal development journey is to make more connections, and I’m determined to make it happen.
I’m opening myself to make space for new connections, as well as nurturing or even rekindling old ones. I don’t know where this year will take me, but I know I’ll be a better version of myself by the end.
What’s your word of the year?
