Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on announce.
Like so many, each year, I try and pick a phrase, a word, a guiding light for my year.
They have ranged from
More and less
All is calm, all is bright
Change and different
I have also tried different monthly additions, ad-ons, ways to connect.
This year, I'm landing on comfort and joy.
I'm not ready to talk to you yet 2021, it's coming, but I'm not ready today. I'm gathering up my thoughts on you and what you have brought. I'm trying to reconcile it all. I'm working on it. Because although so much happened in this year, and the pain, the heavy was so noticeable, I also need to remember that this is life. Life has pain which means it has joy which means it has love which means it has loss which means it has meaning.
So, I'll get there 2021...I'll get to a place where I can talk through our days together.
But, 2022, my hope and my wish, the reason I announce a phrase/word/saying/feeling/goal is because I need comfort and joy this year. I need laughter, I need snuggles, I need a little taking care of, I need a little hand-holding.
Please universe...hear my wish, please take this announcement and know that I am asking, I am in need.
Comfort and joy.
