Comfortable New Yr 🙂 I hope you might be having a great begin to 2022 to date.
My plan for at present was to share my phrase of the yr. As I sat down to put in writing the weblog put up I discovered myself caught. Whereas I really like the sentiment behind having a phrase of the yr, I’ve been actually struggling to nail mine down. I’ve been going forwards and backwards between just a few choices in my head, however none of them seem to be the one.
It would sound foolish however I began getting actually pissed off with myself. I at all times share my phrase of the yr ASAP! How couldn’t have mine found out already? That is at all times my first weblog put up of the yr!!!
I might really feel myself attempting to drive a revelation. Attempting to muscle actually onerous to have an a-ha second about what my phrase of the yr must be. I actually spent yesterday strolling across the metropolis listening to varied podcasts, ready for the proper phrase to leap out at me and say “THIS IS YOUR WORD FOR 2022 KAYLA!!!!!”
In my yoga courses, I oftentimes speak about discovering extra softness in our apply. As an alternative of attempting to muscle our manner right into a pose, can we as a substitute discover extra ease? I used to be doing the alternative IRL: I used to be attempting the drive the f*ck out of discovering my phrase of the yr.
You’ll be able to’t drive a revelation, although. They should occur naturally. Sure, generally it takes some poking and proding. Some unpacking. However attempting to drive my approach to a revelation as a result of I wished to put in writing my phrase of the yr weblog put up? That’s not helpful. I didn’t need to land on a phrase simply because I felt like I used to be on a decent deadline.
I’m presently studying Untamed by Glennon Doyle. One in all my favourite quotes to date is “be nonetheless and know.” It’s this concept that we’ve got all of the solutions inside us, however generally we simply must get actually quiet, sink in to ourselves, and hear.
So, that’s the place I’m at proper now with my phrase and intentions for the brand new yr. I’m giving myself permission to pause and get actually sincere on what it’s that I would like slightly than dashing the method as a result of I really feel obligated to share with the world by the top of this week.
Sure, it’s the primary week of the yr, but it surely’s additionally okay to work by yourself timeline. Possibly you’re additionally feeling harassed on the thought of nailing down your objectives for 2022. Possibly you haven’t found out the proper phrase that encapsulates every little thing you need.
You don’t need to have all of it found out. It would take you just a few days. Or just a few weeks. Or possibly you understand you’re simply not feeling it this yr.
You don’t need to drive a revelation.
