Happy New Year and welcome to our first hop of 2022. Thanks so much for joining us! This week’s challenge comes from the fantastic Andie Fenichel:
Do you have big plans for 2022? Did you make any resolutions, set goals, or map out a schedule? Tell us all about it.
2020 and 2021 were a wake-up call. Those years reminded me of that expression “you make plans and God laughs”.
So, no, I have decided not to make big plans for 2022. But I have decided on some resolutions and goals:
First, I’ve decided to be more chill about the small things. It doesn’t really help to worry – in fact, it just keeps me up nights, which makes problem solving harder. And I resolved to think more like “Ted Lasso”. For you unfamiliar with the show, he opted for kindness as a response, no matter how he was treated, since he believed that others are carrying burdens and those burdens sometimes make them act badly.
As for goals, I have stories to tell. I’ve actually started two more books and I hope to finish them and maybe one or two more. But, as for a schedule… please re-read the first sentence.
I hope your new year is starting out with promise and hope and the determination to continue putting one foot in front of the other until we can run.
Now let’s pop over to the wonderful Jenna DaSie and hear about her new year’s plans…
