2019 has been an eventful year and the best theme I could use to describe mine would be, The Rise of the Phoenix.
At first I heard of this theme being in the carnival festival. The band I was with had this theme and then another festival following that was called Phoenix festival. Months later I went to the movies to watch Maleficient ll and once again I found this same theme! Needless to say it caught my full attention.
The Phoenix representing strength and transformation has been consistent key takeaways for me.
My relationship with God has been transformational. I gained a new perspective on how I view things , especially with work. I focus more on praying for my coworkers and being more in the present. Perfecting my skills at work so I’ll be able to use them in wherever I go to next.
This year I’ve been trying new things whether that’s new food, starting a podcast (everyday adventures in Faith: available on Spotify, etc), or preparing to speak at a conference in 2020! I’m shocked because I know my comfort level and the few things I’ve mentioned were not it! Lol 😂 I’m nervous but excited because I feel like it’s time.
I think this will definitely be an ongoing theme for me as I continue to blossom out of my shell so I’m happy to meet this different version of Ashley. What was your recurring theme for 2019?
