A massive welcome to the first podcast episode of 2023!
I am back feeling refreshed, energised and incredibly excited for the year ahead.
This week I’m sharing with you my word of the year.
If you have one, great! If this is the first you’re hearing of them, welcome! And if you’ve been feeling a little stuck in finding a word that fits you for 2023, I hear you!
Coming up with my word and intention for this year has been a little different to previous years. In previous years, it’s just come to me. I would just be doing something and there it is.
This year, I think I ended up trying to force my word to come through, and I had moments over the break (almost every day if I’m being honest) where I thought about sitting down and journaling, or just sitting there thinking about it, worrying about if I would even have a word for this year.
You would think that I would have learnt by now that when I try to force things…it doesn’t happen.
So when I came back home after being away I sat down to journal and have some time to myself, with no intention of using it to find my word or intention, but surprise, surprise, my journaling led me right to my word and intention for the year.
Here’s what I came up with:
Intention: Feel connected, happy and free. To deepen my service, my life, and stay true to me.
Word: Connection (with a hint of adventure and joy)
Usually when I record the podcast, I map out the episode, write down the gist of what I want to say and the message I want to get across, so I sat down to do that for this episode and was reading back through my journal, and thought that there was really no better way to say what I wanted to than to read my journaling to you.
So this is a really personal episode, you won’t catch me sharing my journaling very often, so I hope you find value in listening in.
