Happy 2018, Loves!
Maybe this will give you some “light reading” as you’re nursing your hangovers 🙂
2017 was full of lessons helping me to Trust the Process (which was fitting for this Philly gal) It took me until August to really embrace trusting. And I can honestly say that the past couple months can only be described as a whirlwind. I made an impromptu move into the city, asked for (and received) a promotion, enjoyed a solo vacation, and packed my social calendar with fun events. I am not bidding Good Riddance to 2017, but I am glad to usher in a new year of really amazing experiences.
This year, I am feeing more ready-than-ever to share my Word of the Year with you.
Like, SO excited that I’ve already been sharing it in person with some of you…
In October, I started to think about what I really wanted for myself in 2018. It took about 20 seconds before “Welcome” hit me like a ton of bricks. It was that clear, and that right.
-I am ready to welcome new experiences that I previously did not consider.
-I am welcoming anyone who wants to come “play” in my realm.
-I am saying welcome to happiness and laughter and joy and friendship and romance and abundance and travel and love and well-being.
-I am literally laying a welcome mat outside my emotional/physical/mental self and inviting those on the outside to come in.
Even just TYPING this post is giving me butterflies!
In August 2016, I thought I would never be able to fully love again. I thought I would never heal the way I wanted to, in order to have the life I’ve always wanted. I didn’t know where I wanted to live, or even how to figure any of it out. I am SO ready for this year and all of the goodness it will bring. I’ve looked forward to fresh starts before, but I have never been more excited about a new year than I am for 2018!

Do you have any words this year?
