trust >>>>

last years word was 'brave'. it was a perfect word. i fought my fears and put myself out there. when i was tempted to say no, instead i said yes. i didn't stay back in the shadows or take the 'safe' road. instead i followed my heart, gulped back the fear and did it anyway ;) last year brought about so much personal growth, i feel like a totally different person to who i was as 2012 began.

this years word found me. mediating just before christmas 'trust' kept pushing itself to the front of my mind. i knew it was to be my guiding word for the coming year. trust for me means following what my heart whispers, trusting that i am on the right path. trusting in myself, in others and in the universe. allowing the road to unfurl ahead of me without questioning where i am going or why.

i have a habit of doubting myself, of trying to second guess my decisions. i know from experience that if i allow myself to follow my intuition it never lets me down.  letting go of what is out of my control, letting the world unfurl around me.

there is a whole new path ahead of me. i have so many new opportunities that have opened up for me in the coming months, 'trust' is just what i need to practice.

the top picture is the art i made of my word, i plan on building an alter around it, the second picture is the journaling i did {at 2am} after my word came to me.

  2. This year two words kept coming up for 2013. Whenever I would decide on one, the other would rear it's head so I'm embracing both. Refine :: Fly. I can't wait to see all that the new year brings.

  4. Hmm..yes, *trust* is a perfect word. I really must take a little time out for myself to find my word.
    Happy new year to you and yours :)

  5. That's a really great word.

    You're going to rock this 2013 thing :)

    I've been meditating on 'change' but I'm not sure yet. I really want to change my views and revolutionize my mind. I want to change my habits and change my relationships. So maybe it is a perfect word for me.

  6. My word for 2013 is Glitter Filled, and my word for January itself is Accomplish!!! I love trust, such a pretty word with such meaning. Trust in yourself can be hard, but so WORTH IT.
