Well, 2022 has been quite the year. There have been ups and downs, and some quirky events and discoveries along the way.
For this week’s episode of Best of Both Worlds, Sarah and I decided to look at the year through the lens of our 2022 goals. We recorded an episode in late 2021 with our hopes and intentions for the year. We both listened to that episode recently (available here; we also looked through our various notes) and then reported back. What happened? What didn’t happen? What happened that we didn’t even think about?
My family did indeed move, and this new house feels like home. I launched Tranquility by Tuesday. By the end of December, I will have read all the works of Shakespeare (I’m almost there now!). In our goal-setting workshop, I said I wanted to write 365 entries (one each day) describing a moment in a character’s life over the course of a single day. I’m about 50,000 words into that project. By happy coincidence, the opportunity presented itself to finally learn some things about make-up. I traveled with the big kids to Paris, and went leaf-peeping in the fall. There were some random little adventures like driving in Manhattan (I’d never done that before!), recording the TBT videos, going to Las Vegas, taking two retreats with Sarah, etc.
There was also an element of surviving — five kids in four different schools, navigating childcare issues and so forth. But I’m still here! And excited to see 2023. Our goals episode will air right after Christmas. Hope your year has gone well!
