Happy New Year my beautiful readers! I am so excited for the New Year and all the new opportunities and possibilities that come with it. 2021 was a lovely year in my life, wherein so many amazing dreams came true, and I really do feel so blessed when I look back on it. But going into 2022, there is so much that I want to accomplish and so many goals I have, and while I’m excited for it all, to be completely candid I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed too. I’m hoping that by sharing this post and writing out all of my goals and focuses I can get a little more clear on what I most want and need to do.
In last year’s New Year’s post, I narrowed everything down to three main focuses going into the year, and it actually worked really well for me so I wanted to do that again. Well, I added a fourth one this year, but same concept! I have some more specific goals, but here on the blog I’m just going to share the more general things I’m working towards.
- Spirituality– I learned a lot about my spirituality and faith in 2021, and I’m so grateful for the evolution that I went through, but in 2022 I actually want to take this to the next level, not only with studying scriptures more deeply and improving my relationship with both the masculine and feminine divine entities that I believe in, but also by sharing more of my spiritual journey. I feel this really strong pull towards helping other people in their faith journey/deconstruction and reconstruction processes, and one of the biggest things that helped me in mine was having others share theirs online, so I really want to continue that cycle this year by educating myself and others on the nuances of religious and spiritual topics.
- Writing- My writing is something that is so, vitally important to me, and I feel like in 2022 it’s going to just spread it’s wings and fly to a whole new height. If that metaphor makes any sense, haha. I published my first book in 2021 and I know it is going to be the first of many in my life. Going into this new year, I want to make sure I’m carving out intentional time for my writing so that I can improve my craft and bring all the stories that are in my heart and soul to life.
- Career- This year I am CHASING my dreams when it comes to my business and growing my secondary source of income. I’m determined to grow to where I’m actually making a consistent income every month and can start working towards the goal of actually being self-employed. If you’re curious about my business, I am a freelance writer who offers copywriting and repurposing for online entrepreneurs. So in a nutshell I write blog posts, social media content, mission statements for businesses and more! You can send me a contact form via this site if you’re interested in working with me. I’m super passionate about this work and I am soo tired of living my life at a 9-5 job. I want out of that lifestyle and so this is really important to me.
- Finding Peace and Presence in the Now- I guess this one could also be translated to like, focusing on my mental health, which was one of my 2021 priorities and definitely one that I want to carry over into this year, but more specifically, I am trying to focus on not allowing things I can’t control to inordinately affect me. There has been one specific thing that I’ve been wanting for a really long time, but I don’t actually have any control over this thing, and so rather than focus on how bad I want that thing that I currently can’t do anything to bring about, I’m trying to put my focus on what I can control, what I can work on, and improving myself one day and step at a time. I have other things I want to achieve and so I want to focus on those things rather than letting the one thing I can’t have get me down. Because honestly, I’m really sick and tired of letting it get me down.
What are your goals and focuses for 2022?
