2022 and I’m EXCITED! To be alive and to be able to plan out some fun thangs ta do. Ps. It’s been a HOT minute since I’ve written anything on here. But I’ve got the motivation today and am so excited to return to one of my dearest loves: writing.
And planning. And being excited about life! Lol
Okay, soooo I got married in September 2021! Tomorrow is our four month being married anniversary! Yaaaaaaay!
It’s so much fun being married to the cutest, sweetest, most adorable husband in the world. (But I guess you wouldn’t know that since there’s only one of him?!!!)
Lol some a y’all out there are like “yaaaaaass hunny just wait. it’s comin’ for ya”. As if the big, bad, scary reality of how terrible marriage is is finally going to settle in soon. But I disagree. I don’t think it has to be that way. I believe that you get what you put in, and if both parties are working on having a wonderful relationship, then you’re gonna thrive. Not survive, thrive.
I’m still caregiving in 2022 – entering into my seventh year! – and loving it. God has been SO faithful in my jobs all of these years since I moved to Virginia and I couldn’t be more thankful. The people I’ve helped have helped ME so much and every relationship has truly been God-ordained. Wow.
I switched churches almost two years ago and have been absolutely LOVING our new church for its’ amazing pastor. Each week I continue to feel at peace that I’m in the right church home. I hope to become a member soon and —- YO I just paused mid-sentence to look up when the next member class is and it’s FEBRUARY 6TH! Putting it on the calendar MEOW
Ps. I have the best planner ever. It’s an HOURLY Day-planner. Aka, there’s a full page for each weekday and a half page for Saturday/Sunday. And the time stamps are marked for every other line starting at 7am and going through 8pm! I love it!! If you’re a planner I highly recommend this planner! I got it here.
So. Where were we? Ahh, yes. New members class. That’ll be cool. Maybe I can start serving in the church in some capacity. Worship team? That would be awesome. Makes me a little nervous because it’s a big church. But I think it would be really fulfilling. Lord would have to sing through me though! That’s for sure.
A New Year. What all with 2022 bring! Besides working, continually learning how to grow in my relationship with God, my husband, work hard, save money and pay off debt. And maybe a couple mini trips to a couple places… 😉
Also, SURFING. I want to get back into surfing this year! 2020 was the year I started learning how to surf and then BAM 2 injuries within two months. HOWEVER I’m doing a lot better now! I realize that eating white flour makes my knees ache, so I gotta ease back up on that. I never ate much white flour my whole life except for pizza once a week or something, but lately I’ve been eating more of it because my husband loves white pasta. Gotta switch back to wheat, as much as I don’t want to! That’ll help my surf game.
So another thing I plan to do these next couple of months is be building up my endurance to swim/surf. I was weight-lifting in 2020 and I think that really helped me. I want to get back into that in a way that won’t jack up my knee. I was doing weighted-squats before but unfortunately that’s not a great option for me anymore 🙁 so I will have to modify my workout. Or just completely come up with a knee one. I have some resistance bands that I could use.
The thing about surfing is it’s NOT a walk in the park. It’s EXTREMELY vigorous and requires strength, swimming skills, balance and core strength and agility. I have been basically a pancake for a year, so it’ll be interesting to get back into working out. lol #2022 here we come!!!!!!!
What are your dreams and goals for the year?!!? What you focus on EXPANDS! Think good thoughts 🙂
