So, to recap 2022, my word of the year was—and still is for a little bit longer here—Integrity.
I needed to learn to be more in integrity with myself.
I do think that I did that, overall, throughout the year.
As with everything for and with me, it’s a process.
I have known what my word of the year for 2023 would be for months now. Not just from October, which is normally when I begin to consider these things as Samhain is the New Year for me and for my work.
My word for 2023 is Be. Just Be.
I have spent my entire life working hard to be me. I have, throughout my life, also allowed myself to become what others have wanted me to be. I have also lost myself in motherhood. And so on and so forth. My youngest is now old enough I can begin to remember who I am and who I want to be.
So, my job for the coming year is to Be. Be me. Be who I approve of. Be who I want to be. Be the person I have not allowed myself to be for so long. Be the person my soul is crying out for. Be the person I have the most respect for and the most admiration for.
That’s it. It is a very small, very simple word…yet the repercussions of this word can be HUGE. At least I hope it will be.
And to you all, blessed be.
