2020 is THANKFULLY coming to a close soon and I gotta tell you: this was a bad year. I hit the reset button on everything, including with Manifest It!, because the Universe is preparing me for something, I know it. I feel it in my bones.
Earlier in the year, during January of 2020, I had posted on my former Instagram account that my word of the year for 2020 was “perseverance.” Well, that’s definitely the situation that played out for me in both my business and in my personal life this year. I won’t even bore you with all the speedbumps I’ve encountered over the course of this year. I’ve had to hit the reset button in big ways for Manifest It! and within my own mindset.
However, as I said, I feel like the Universe is preparing me for something. And if YOU have been feeling frustrated, confused, defeated, downhearted, blue, stressed out to the max, and everything else that 2020 has thrown our way- please do NOT give up. Please, keep going. Seriously. I think I cried about 16 times this year.
Growth is not always a bed of roses, but the reward is so worth it!
I’ve had some blessings over this year, too, and I’m counting even the smallest blessings. When it comes to manifesting, the compound effect works BEST. And it works quickly.
For 2021, My Word Is: Serendipity
The reason why I am picking this word is that I’ve learned some big lessons about what it means to “keep going” and trust the process at the SAME TIME. Also, I’ve always really loved this word, it’s so much fun to say!
I encourage YOU to come up with a word for 2021 as well, or you can use the same word I’m using for this next year. The whole point is to:
- Set your intentions (what do you want to manifest?)
- Take daily steps moving towards your dreams (actionable steps to speed up the manifestation process)
- And SURRENDER to the outcome (trust the process). Yep, you knew I was going to remind you of this part
But seriously, I surrendered to my website redesign problems with people, my domain being screwed up, and then I met the RIGHT person to redesign my website and brand. If I hadn’t surrendered to the outcome, this gorgeous website that I cry over would have not come together.
Same with my new partnership with Pandora. No, I’m not a musician all of a sudden, they are hosting my podcast now. I had submitted an application to them 4 months ago. I figured they turned me down and so I surrendered to the situation. A week ago I got an email from them accepting my podcast show, Manifest It!
And in my personal life, I have had to deal with some past fears that came to the surface for me again. I worked through them by voicing my wants and needs (while freaking out about it). And I surrendered to the outcome, telling myself that “if it’s meant to be, it will be.” And guess what? When I surrendered to the outcome, I actually got what I wanted. For real. ((thankful))
Oh my gosh, 2020 has been a year…but I didn’t give up on myself. And I don’t want you to give up on yourself, either. We are in this together.
Talk to you soon. Big hugs to you, I wish you a beautiful week, a beautiful Christmas day, and a FANTASTIC New Year for 2021. I hope you pick an empowering word for your year and let’s make 2021 a much better year than 2020 was for all of us.
