AWAKEN NOBLE LIONESS…Your pride awaits

It’s five days into 2020 and I’m finally posting my annual power/focus word for the year.  It took a minute because I was meditating, contemplating, and confirming what my gut was telling me. But first, let me rewind and say that 2019 was a great year in my life.  I THRIVED in so many areas that I credit to God and the Universe aligning in my favor, and staying focused on my goals and other things that were important to me. I saw great advances in my journey that are too numerous to detail.  And while not quite where I want to be yet, I am pleased with my growth and progress. My 2019 takeaway is staying positive and watching the energy you radiate and welcome.

For 2020, my word is FEARLESS. I recently read in someone’s Twitter post that “2020 will be the same as every other year if you let your fear stop you from becoming the person you want to be.” Now in general, I believe I am courageous about a lot of things and have exhibited that in my life at times. But I also recognize that more times than not, I have allowed fear to mute my inner lioness and create doubt about myself and capabilities.  And guess what? It is usually because of someone else’s opinion. I have traced it back to my childhood and have since forgiven those who did not know any better all along my 50+ year journey. More importantly, too, is that I have forgiven myself for allowing others to have that much influence in my life and destiny.

But no experience is wasted and being fearless, for me, is more about an intentional mindset to use my experiences to better heed my inner voice, boldly pursue my dreams, set aspirational goals, and live an unregrettably fabulous life on my own terms.  I had positive, forward movement in 2019 and plan to build upon that traction. So, to the year 2020, I proclaim that I, Nina Ann Hall, am a lioness (by astrological sign and in my spirit), and you will most definitely experience the effects of my roar.  #FEARLESS
