“There is nothing wrong with being a pig," says Shenzhan Liao, director of education at China Institute’s School of Chinese Studies.
This year I’m getting more connected to my hubby’s heritage. I decided to do a little research on what the year of the pig is expected to bring - hope you find some fun in it like I did 🤗

As life continues to move full speed ahead, from New Years to Chinese New Year, to now on the brink of valentine’s days...
It’s nice to remember to slow down. To take it all in and have fun along the way. Some of the year’s 🐖 reminders:
1️⃣Pigs aren’t known to be the most active animals. If you’re feeling a little lazier this year, let yourself have a little slack and give yourself some time to see what you actually enjoy besides working your tail off.
2️⃣ Let things be fun and entertaining rather than always disciplined & don’t force things to happen.
3️⃣The old saying, ‘happy as a pig in mud’ means we may subconsciously be more focused on laughing, playing and living through our senses than solving the deepest darkest secrets of the universe.
4️⃣It’s a great year to release the pressure to be perfect.
5️⃣ It’s a good financial year & a year to be generous.
The year of the Earth pig hasn’t come around since 1959. This was the year Fidel Castro came to power in Cuba, the Dalai Lama fled Tibet, Hawaii became a state, and the peace treaty of Antarctica was signed. It was a pretty monumental year and those changes were lasting.
The pig is said to be festive and stable, which is a nice break for all of us. The energy is happy to enjoy the company of close loved ones, grounded and practical. It’s a year of getting closer to loved ones and finding a sense of home while still holding onto a sense of spirituality.
Embrace your inner pig & enjoy 💕What pig traits do you identify with 🐷⬇️
