Begin Where You Are 1/365
I haven't blogged in more than a year, but part of my intention for 2022 is to reclaim the things that give me joy and to distance myself from the things that suck the joy right out of me. So here I am. I was going to write this long catch-up post but I'm just going to begin where I am and give backstory where needed.
I love the first day of the New Year.
I'm a ridiculous optimist, even in the midst of a pandemic, even in the midst of a struggle with chronic illness, even months behind on my filing (!). It's the New Year! All of that is going to be so much better now!
I have no idea. But I feel it and I'm leaning in.
As 2021 was drawing to an end, I genuinely had this feeling of waking up after a long time of hibernation; this feeling of excitement for whatever is told in the next chapter of this adventure. I hope you feel that, too. That something is waiting to be known. That there is possibility in every direction. I hope the exhaustion of the past few years hasn't stolen your optimism, and that together we might find our collective way back to living again if you've been feeling a bit lost, as I have.
What would that look like to you? Are there things you would like to add back to your daily routine? Are there things you are ready to release?
Daily gratitude: words, discipline, renewal
