My Word For 2018, And Why You Need One!
We are only 2 months into 2018 and i can already tell that this is going to be a different type of year... I mean there are so many NEW things happening to me and around me. Im meeting so many NEW people. Having to do NEW things. Coming across very NEW experiences. Even my friends are becoming NEW moms, starting NEW jobs, and entering NEW relationships! And that's exactly why I have declared 2018 as my NEW NEW year!! You see I always pick a word to go with the year. For example, 2017 was my year of alignment and man was it ever! Everything in my life during this time literally aligned with my purpose. My business, my mind, my spirit, just everything fell into place in 2017 and last year really set me up for where i am and where i'm going this year!
I feel like when you assign a word to your year, you are setting a tone for it. You are verbally making a declaration for how your year will go. And speaking from experience, the year seriously matches the word… the good and bad things. So already this year I have stumbled upon some difficult, but NEW situations. One of them being when my Facebook page got hacked this month. Nothing like this has ever happened before in my life. It was so unexpected and I was so hurt when I realized that all of my friends that I strategically added were now lost, which further meant my growing network was at a halt. I was honestly devastated when I came to the conclusion that I would have to start a new Facebook page. Even though this was a hard pill to swallow, something kept reminding me that this is my NEW new year. Therefore, I had to look at in a different way. I obviously need NEW quality fb friends and to grow my network in a NEW way. And let me tell you, all the support that I have gotten on my new page is totally different from my last. If I didn't have my word for 2018, I would still be upset about my page being hacked.
I have a friend and she told me her word for 2018 was abundance. She mentioned that this year all of her hard work would be pay of and that her life would be more fruitful in this year. I have been keeping a close eye on her and can tell you that this is her year of abundance and fruitfulness. For one, she just announced that she is with child but besides that, her career is really taking off! Her word has really set a tone for her year and i'm watching it come to life for her.
Listen, if you don't have a word for 2018, im begging you to get one QUICK! In order to do that, think about how you want to feel at the end of 2018. Ask yourself exactly what it is you hope to accomplish by the end of the year. Now putting these thoughts in your head should help you focus on a theme. And from there pick a word or maybe even two that will carry you through the 2018!
