Edit: My comments were accidentally turned off. My apologies. Please do comment below because I would love to hear your thoughts as well as your own goals for 2022.
Before 2022 begins, I thought I would share some goals I have for this month. Some of them are things I have been trying to do this year but haven’t been as successful as I would have liked while some of them are just things I want to begin in 2022.
I sometimes find myself giving up too easily when things get difficult and I want to stop doing that. I don’t want to be someone who gives up when things aren’t going as plan. I would much rather be someone who perseveres. That’s one of my biggest goals in 2022.
If you have been following my blog for a while now, especially for those of you who followed me when I first started, you’ll know that this is something that has always been somewhat difficult for me. In fact, there have been times in my life where if you asked me to name just one thing about myself that I loved I wouldn’t have been able to do so. It’s been a hard time getting to where I am now and being at least able to love myself to an extent but truth be told I still have some very dark days. Next, year I want to continue on my journey of self love and try even harder.
Some people want to grow up but in 2022 I want to grow down. What I mean by this is that I want to feel things the way I did as a child. I want to have emotions and be excited and be open to new things and just be happy. I feel that as I get older I get more pessimistic and jaded and I want to stop that. I want to stay optimistic and keep certain things from my childhood.
This one is accompanied by a question mark because I would love to travel but I don’t know how safe that will be next year. I hope I can travel but with the situation with the new variant that may not happen any time soon.
I had a busy year in 2021 and that’s my excuse for now always doing my best at blogging. Sometimes blogging had to take a back seat and that’s okay. In 2022, I feel like I want to put more time into blogging although I may not blog daily as I did in 2021. I had promised myself I would blog everyday for 365 days in 2021 and if you’re reading this I probably achieved that. However, it was difficult and sometimes draining so next year I am going to blog as often as I can but maybe like 6 days a week instead of 7 lol. I also want to come up with fresh ideas for blog posts, participate in more awards, tags and challenges and be more active on other blogs which I kind of dropped the ball on this year.
Be Okay With Not Being Okay
I have to accept that I will never be fully “okay” or fully “normal.” As someone who suffers from mental illness I know that some days are going to be more difficult than others and that’s okay. I’m just going to do my best everyday even if my best is simply to get out of bed on some days.
Stop Saying “Sorry” And “Thank You”
Not altogether but when it’s unnecessary. I feel like I have a habit of apologising when I don’t need to and saying thank you even when someone says something that is clearly an insult thinly veiled as a compliment. Next year, I’m going to be more direct and match people’s energies. If you’re going to be mean and shady that’s exactly what you’re going to get back from me.
Write A Book
I started working on my first book this year and if possible I really want to finish it next year. I’m so incredibly excited to share it with you guys!
I’m not very good at communicating. Okay, I’m worse at communicating than most people are at anything. I have a very hard time being honest about my feelings and talking to people. I also suck at talking to people I don’t know very well. It’s something I want to work on in 2022. Especially, the whole communicating my feelings thing. I really need to start doing that before I snap.
I have one of those brains that never shut up and honestly it’s incredibly exhausting. Over the years I have given in and let my brain have its way but I have been trying harder to control it and try to calm it down a little. Next year, I want to make sure I take some time to just relax and breathe. It’s important to give your mind some rest as well as your body.
I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my goals. Do you have any goals of your own for 2022? If so, let me know what they are in the comments below because I always love hearing from y’all!
