I was trying to come up with the right words for what 2022 meant to me. I was at a loss for words. It wasn’t a horrible year. It wasn’t a stellar year. I don’t think I was killin’ it either….but I also wasn’t just in survival mode like the year prior.
Then, it dawned on me why it felt so hard to put a word to it.
2022 was my recovery year. The year of catching up.
The year of recovering from some really hard shit. The past 3 years have been full of ups and downs.
From Covid, being pregnant in the height of the pandemic, almost losing my life after birthing my son, to navigating life with a newborn and a 4 year old, to getting the unexpected news that my daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes…it’s been really hard to get back on track with my own goals.My own desires, my passions, my purpose.
I have literally been drowning in this season of mothering. I will always be a mom and I love being a mom to my kids. I also need to mother myself and put myself first again. My dreams and goals matter and they make me a better mom for them.
2022 was about catching up. Catching my breath from some really hard shit. Catching up financially. Catching up with our new normal and new routines.
I decided that 2023 is going to be a year of ease and luxe. I explain about why I’ve selected these words in my new podcast episode.
How do you want to feel this year? It’s not enough to just generically create some goals. You need a realistic plan with milestones along the way to track your progress.
I’m easing back into the year and I hope you’ll join me in this next chapter of Irresistible You.
