I set big intentions for 2019. Like most of you I’m sure, I took the time to dig deep and reflect on what the passing year meant to me. What did I learn? How did I grow? What do I want 2019 to manifest?
If I take step back and think about what brought me here, I think of 2017 and my desire for change and growth. 2017 was a year of standing still. It was a year of dipping my toes into what could be possible, a year of planting tiny seeds of change and waiting to see what would blossom in 2018.
Then, 2018 was a year of big changes; it was a move across provinces, of leaving a life and career I’d built in Halifax over the last 6 years, of starting fresh in my home province with a new job, a new apartment, and a new Toronto. 2018 was a year of protecting my health and my heart, and basically just trying to keep my head above water amidst it all. I spent the time to learn what I need to be my happiest self, and this is something I’m taking with me into this new year
Now, 2019 marks a year of fluidity and movement, of not standing still. I’m ready to welcome new people, new experiences, travel, adventure, love, and growth into my world. This means new habits, new perspectives, and shedding a lot of the old, ingrained preconceived notions that previously held me back from this kind of openness.
What this means practically, I don’t know yet. But I see a lot of travel on the horizon (starting with a trip to NYC in a week), a focus on self love and self care, and perhaps trying to swipe right more often than I swipe left. We’ll see.
What are your intentions for the new year?
