I watched so many friends and family experience loss of loved ones. Even when you expect it – it does not make it hurt any less. Even as time goes on - it still hurts, but you do your best to be comforted by the memories and remember how blessed you were to have them as part of our life when they were here.
Not only in death, but loss was experienced in relationships and friendships - and this is where I want to elaborate on the significance of the title. In 2019, L.O.S.S. represented for me:
Liberation - This was my realization word for 2019. I didn't fully accomplish this, but surprisingly enough my car accident was the catalyst that forced me to really face how important freedom is to your mindset and your well being.
Outgrowing - I very much value forgiveness and redemption, so in most instances I have let people overstay their welcome in my life. It has taken me literally more than 1/2 of my life to realize how unhealthy this has been. I understand now that not every person is meant to stay in your life. It doesn't mean you don't wish them well, it just has to be from a distance.
Seeking - I had been on a search to reconnect with the My Lord and Saviour. The deficiency of this relationship left me feeling like I was truly in the desert, but as the strongholds (fear, shame guilt, anxiety, depression) diminish, I started to feel his presence more and more with me.
Self - Awareness. Care. Love. Compassion. Discovery. This is where my 2019 ended for me, so what's in store for this new year, new decade?
An elevated me - as a coach, friend, woman, mother, daughter, sister, and boss.
I am ready.
I am ready to choose that, from 2020 and beyond, I am personally and professionally living an abundant life of W.I.N.S.:
- Next Level
