My Word of the Year
2018 is about to bid farewell and you know what that means, don’t you? It’s time to unveil my annual word of the year! A tradition on Along Comes Mary since my first year of blogging, my words of the year have varied vastly each time, yet symbolize something meaningful to me every year.
As I discussed on my Year in Review post, there were certainly a lot of ups and downs. Yet, I’ve been extremely fortunate and grateful for all of the good times. Given the happiness I had during 2018, I feel my word for 2019 is very fitting as we head into a new year.
My 2019 Word of the Year
We all can use some healing. Whether it be the state of the country and world or our own lives, I know I’m definitely trying to get (and stay) on a healing path. In between my happy times in 2018, I’ve had my share of battles that have tried to bring me down. I’ve felt weak, powerless, sad, depressed, anxious. I’m happy I’ve managed to get through these times, but, sometimes I’m faking my happy to get through the day. I’m hoping to do this less in the new year. If that means not feeling guilty if I need to take a day off, or turn down plans to get back on track, then so be it.
While I don’t even entirely know what “healing” will look like, I hope any of us that needs it will get it. Life is hard and it’s important to remember to take care of ourselves.
Happy New Year! xo
