Trust – My New Word for 2018

Trust in yourself is what is emerging for me. It popped into my head a while back and it hasn’t left, and I’m thinking it’s the perfect word for this next year.  Commitment, my word that has guided me, created magic for me, and been my friend throughout 2017, has really served me well, but at times although I mostly stayed committed to my writing intentions, listening to my intuitive voice was a challenge.

In looking back at this year, although I was committed to bringing magic into my life and lighting the way for others, I often questioned myself, and doubted myself. I would write a perfect blog post and than my inner doubter would overtake me and I’d question if this is good enough, who will want to read this, maybe it’s too long a post, too short a post, not inspiring enough, ridiculous, and so it was left.

But commitment my loving guide, kept me in the game and even though I didn’t publish some of my what I considered not good enough and/or inspiring enough writings, I still published almost on a weekly basis, and that was because of – commitment.

But now I feel that this new year coming will be or has to be about – self trust – Trust in the one thing I’ve been wanting so much and at times avoided, my own inner self, my own inner knowing, my own inner treasure chest full of amazing, magical, inspiring, loving offerings that I know can help to heal and help to inspire, encourage and ignite a spark in others.

I’m feeling that there’s a “new consciousness” that wants in, as Sue Monk Kidd writes in her book The Dance of the Dissident Daughter, and Trust in myself is emerging to support that new journey.  So I’m letting it in and I’m embracing it with all of my might. I’ll need a lot of courage to stand up to my own inner doubters, but backed with commitment and an unbreakable trust in my own inner knowing, I know that I can stand strong in my root and give out what wants to be expressed.

Wishing you a magical year ahead filled with lots of trust in yourself.
