LOVE. This was my 2017 intention. The word I chose to guide my actions. It wasn’t always easy to LOVE but I focused my LOVE through praying, extending gratitude, and being genuinely hopeful and happy in my life. I greeted negativity with non-resistance, allowing it to evaporate into the nothingness of its origin and intent. LOVE prevailed so that I could focus on relationships, situations and circumstances that were for my highest and best.
But alas, as I usher in 2018, a new word beckons my heart with oneword365.com. It is DREAM. As a young girl, I remember many of my dreams and aspirations become shattered by adults nursing their own fear, pain and regret. They probably believed their words and actions were for my best. Over the years, those thoughts rented space in my psyche and my dreams and desires became lost in the mundane race called life, my spirit beaten down yearly by misplaced expectations. The world and its people can be so cruel.
Today, however, I serve an eviction notice to the uninvited guests who have become comfortable and overstayed their welcome. You are no longer welcome here! This is not personal, but necessary. It’s now time to move along. I don’t care where you go, but be gone by midnight. There is only enough space to unpack my long-lost DREAMs; recycling not allowed. Besides, the locks have already been changed and anything left behind is being placed in the trash on the curb. Sayonara.
