Happy New Year, y’all! Here we are, in 2023. It also happens to be the year I experience my final year in my thirties. As we enter the new year, I am slightly anxious because i had a good 2022 and while I would really like 2023 to be similar, I know life can throw curveballs. That said, it’s life in the end. We take the good with the not-so-good and the downright crappy, don’t we?
Like with the past few years, I began thinking early in December about a word, phrase or intention for 2023 to help me remember how I want to live my life. One word stood out more than others and it has become my intention for the year.
2023 is all about Finding Flow
Flow is the state of being engaged and absorbed in an activity or task and I am hoping this phrase will serve as a reminder to be present and engaged in all that I do including my work, writing, reading, relationships, training, and during my leisure time. I feel like it works well in moving on from slowing down last year to really focussing on flow. The other way I’d like it to serve as a reminder is about ‘going with the flow’ especially when my anxiety and mood issues threaten to take over. It’s a reminder to notice it and be mindful and observe these emotions without judging them and reacting to them.
I have broken down some more little intentions in important areas of my life but I’ve left that out of the blog for now.
Do you have a word, phrase or intention for year?
