I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22 goals for 2022!

Looking back at the blog post I wrote this time last year, I can remember how much I dreaded looking back on the previous year. All of us were trying to navigate this new world and this feeling of unknown. There had been so much change in my life and I was not sure what path I was going to take next. I knew that big things were ahead in 2021 and I wrote goals to help me create the life I wanted to live. When I wrote the goals for last year I had no clue that I would be able to accomplish almost all of them and a few of them felt like they were impossible.

LOOKING BACK AT 2021

  1. Get dressed every day.
    Remember when each day felt like Groundhog Day and we never left the house? By 2021, I was ready to get out of pajama pants and was really good at intentionally getting dressed every single day. It not only helped my mood but I felt more productive during the day.
  2. Commit to a blog schedule and plan ahead content.
    This past year I spent a lot of time focused on my little corner of the internet. There was a big shift in creating quailty content instead of quantity and this way I fell in love with writing again. I seriously do not know how I would have survived the last year without this little hobby becasue it brought me so much joy!
  3. Feel more comfortable on Instagram Stories
    This honestly lasted like a week becasue I don’t think I’ll ever be able to pop on my Instagram Stories and be like, “hey guys!” While I didn’t talk that much on stories, I got a lot better at creating fun content on my stories like my Currently Watching series and sharing my daily life.
  4. Find a job that fulfills me and allows a good personal/work balance. 
    This is something I wrote down in my journal and stared at it for a long time. I was sure this was a reach. Something impossible to achieve because it felt like such a fantasy. In the fall, I accepted a job offer at a job that I thought was only possible in my dreams. Honestlhy, I love Mondays now because I am so excited to get to work. The job schedule also allows me to have an amazing life/work balance too which is a big bonus!
  5. Get back into a fitness routine and eat healthy. 
    The cruise in August was a BIG motivator to get back into shape and the work has paid off! My clothes fit better and I have so much more energy now.
  6. Continue cooking healthy meals from scratch. 
    This started because I had so much free time and now eating healthy meals is our lifestyle. We love to order pizza and have cheat meals, but my body craves healthier meals these days. Cooking dinner at night while listening to a podcast is my “me time” at night and I love it!
  7. Weekly baths on Sundays.
    My Sunday baths are my favorite part of the week. Especially now that I am back to work, it is the perfect way to unwind before another crazy week begins.
  8. Read a book a month. 
    I unfortunately did not meet my book goal for the year but I also read a lot of books that were 900+ pages. Reading at night before bed helped me sleep better and I loved getting lost in a fantasy world again.
  9. Become a morning person. 
    This is a goal that I sorta kinda accomplished? I still hate waking up early but now it’s impossible to sleep past 9am.
  10. Schedule weekly date nights with Jake. 
    We did as many dates nights as we could while also trying to stay safe in a pandemic.
  11. Buy a car
    This was our big purchase for the year and I am so happy we did it!
  12. Hire a cleaning service to clean the house once it’s safe. 
    Our goal was to look into hiring a cleaning service once I went back to work but Omicron made us put that on the back burner for a bit.
  13. Be positive. 
    This past year I created a happy life for myself and as a result, I felt happier and more positive.
  14. Use all the products I have before buying more.
    My linen closet that I use as storage for all of my products is ALMOST empty and that was a big achievement for the last year!
