word of the year: TPS staff
Hi, friends! How’s 2019 unfolding for you so far?
Many phoenix souls like to choose a word or phrase for the year—an intention to guide their coming days. (Coming soon: Danna Schmidt shares her top tips on choosing your own word, “Claiming your Year with Purpose and Pizzazz.”)
Some of our TPS staff wrote about their choices for 2019. I get an expansive, hopeful feeling as I read them together, and I bet you will, too.
Keep an eye out soon for a special post with staff artist Nolwenn Petitbois’ word, including a video of her painting a companion piece—and an opportunity to purchase your own custom artwork from her (affordable, unique work that supports both artist and owner? You know I swoon for that!).
my word for 2019
I’ve been writing lots about journey, my 2019 guiding word, on my Patreon (including a few weekly soul-prompts exploring further).
I’m reminding myself to enjoy the journey this year as I work toward some Big Dreams, not to get so laser-focused on the Destination that I lose sight of lessons and joy in the here and now. I’m also working with ideas about forward movement, how and when to leap (or not) when I feel ready (or not), taking one little step, and much more. I can already tell journey will stretch me this year!
I offered three prompts to our staff. You might enjoy considering them, too:
What’s your word or phrase for 2019?
What are you embracing in the new year?
What are you letting go?
What’s your word? Share with us in the comments!
New to this practice or need some guidance? Look forward to Danna’s piece soon, and Nolwenn’s inspiring video. I also recommend Susannah Conway’s free e-mail course, Find Your Word (and don’t miss her beloved Unravel Your Year resource to contemplate 2018, if you haven’t done so already).
Happy 2019—and may this year unfold with deep blessing.
