A Word For 2020: Anew
Towards the end of 2016, I decided to picked a word to define the upcoming new year. The word for 2017 was suddenly and boy was that the correct word for the year. Not to reflect on 2017, but suddenly I found myself a widow, a single mother, broken and lost.
With grieving, moving and trying to figure out my new life, in 2017 and 2018, I didn’t even give a thought to defining the approaching new year. I was too busy trying to adjust to life. Hell, the time when most of you are reflecting on the outgoing year and preparing for the new one, I’m struggling emotionally.
Holiday season is difficult for me, I lost my love a few weeks before Thanksgiving. His birthday is two days before Christmas. Then Christmas and the new year; I can’t help but feel sadness during this time of year.
But, a few weeks after Thanksgiving 2019 the Spirit placed the word “anew” in my spirit and I knew it was the word that’s going to define 2020.
It’s fitting, if you think about it. 2020, is not only a new year, but also the beginning of a new decade.
I want 2020 to birth a new me. I’m beginning again in a new more positive form; conceived from love, labored through grief, born through triumph.
Gone is fear, negative self-talk and thoughts, self-doubt, procrasination, laziness, lack of motivation, and anything else that has held me back in the past.
I am a new me; a new creation. Ready to do and be.
Y’all ain’t ready, lol.
May God be with you until we meet again.
