This past year has made me question everything I once held as strong fast beliefs. As my world was turned upside down, it made me examine my thoughts on manifesting, goal setting and choosing a word of the year. I did not manifest spending the past year in and out of hospitals, having countless surgeries and medical procedures. It wasn’t on my goal list to be told repeatedly that I had the worst possible outcome by doctors. When I said I wanted more fun in my life, that didn’t include being told I was about to die.
The past few years I’ve chosen a word for the year. 2020 ironically enough was fun. The only thing that rang true about that was how funny my choice was as the world plunged into chaos and I had the most difficult year of my life. Don’t worry, I’m laughing about it now.
2021 I didn’t write a post on, but I had two words, Health and Home. Instead of focusing on goals with my career or this blog, I focused a lot on getting my health back in order, which is still a questionable status. But, looking back at this past year I’ve overcome a lot. And then, remodeling our home had been a back burner project for years, so it was nice having that as a distraction this year between doctor’s appointments and meeting new specialists.
Now that brings us to 2022. I’ll be honest after the past two years, I’m not feeling very optimistic about choosing a word. But, after a lot of thought, it occurred to me that my word of the year didn’t need to be an action word, propelling me forward to new heights. Just the thought of that gives me anxiety. I feel too fragile to work toward anything like that this year. So, instead I decided to focus on healing. Healing my physical body and my mind after the past two years. To do that I will create a home that feels serene and calming. By saying no to things that cause me undue stress and anxiety. And continuing to focus on my health. So healing is my word for 2022.
For those of you also feeling like you need a little more calm and a little less chaotic #girlboss energy in 2022 here are 22 words to focus on for the best 2022.
