Now, I’m more settled as a mom. I know I don’t have it all figured out, but I’ve figured out that I don’t have to. And I’m finally in a rhythm again, where I can show up and write and think clearly. I have truly missed this outlet. As I was searching for a word that fit, I read through a list of rarely used words and efflorescence just jumped off the page at me.
Today is the Chinese New Year and I think I'm officially making my tradition of starting a fresh year on this day. When I look back at my Word of the Year posts, it mostly took me this long to get there. And, energetically, it just feels better to have January as a transition month instead of running full steam ahead.
What are your new year traditions? What's your word of the year, if you have one?
