Someone asked me recently if I had a word of the year, and I definitely DO, so I thought I’d share it with you and tell you why this matters. .
My word is intuition. While we all kind of know that intuition means following your gut, if you want to get technical it means “a thing someone knows likely from instinct rather than conscious reasoning.” Thank you Merriam Webster.
I chose intuition this year because throughout my life I have been all about conscious reasoning. I historically have always chosen the logical choice over my gut check.
Using this method has brought me a lot of good in life- I have a great education, I’ve lost and kept off 80 pounds, etc.
However, I’ve also noticed that I’ve grown very comfortable being highly rigid. When things are out of my control or comfort zone I withdrawal. I tend to freak out when things aren’t part of my plan, and have anxiety if I can’t anticipate every next move.
While flexibility could have been a word I chose for this year, I chose intuition because I think that learning to trust yourself is a huge gift, and one that I have not fully surrendered to yet.
Following my gut, my intuitive nature, and letting that lead me even when it’s a little scary will be my work for this year. 💕
So what’s your word?
When you pause, close your eyes, and think of the intention you’d like to set for this year, what is it?
Post your word of the year below! I’d love to hear about all of the intentions we are creating in 2020.
