My theme word for 2023 is “fulfilled”. That word makes me pause and remember that I am the one who gets to create my purpose, define my dreams and live in a way that brings me joy. In the past I let my parents, religion, societal expectations, or the needs of a partner mold who I am. Or I used my skills and talents to support other people’s dreams at the expense of my own. I relinquished my need to feel fulfilled in order to be loved, approved of, or accepted by others. This has been a lifelong pattern that begs to be broken.
For the first time in my life, though, my purpose and my dreams feel a little unclear. Maybe because I’m not relying on anyone else to help me define them? Or maybe I’m just afraid to admit them? Or maybe I’m not sure how to attract them into my life? I’m definitely clear about the things that bring me joy; such as teaching, learning, moving my body, creating, writing, collaborating, performing, community building and traveling. But I’m not sure how to wrap those things up in a bow to create the daily life and lifestyle I want. So, 2023 is dedicated to nurturing all of those things that bring me joy as a catalyst for creating my purpose and living a fulfilling life.
