My Word of 2022

I stopped making resolutions years ago and started choosing a word for the year. In 2021, my word was well-being. The end of the year really made me focus on myself, especially after getting my appendix out early December and catching COVID over Christmas.

Lots of great things happened to me in 2021, and sometimes it takes a couple of crappy things to put it all into perspective.

My word for 2022 is going to be growth. While I feel like I grow every year, always kind of impressed with myself for making it through another 12 months, in the past couple years I feel like I’ve been going with the flow too much.

A lot of things had just been out of my control, the pandemic, getting laid off, moving out of New Hampshire, the first job I got after getting laid off, etc. I had no choice but to be reactive instead of proactive.

Now I feel that I’ve found myself in a more comfortable place where I can put down roots and grow. I have a new job that will really challenge me, we’re staying in our townhouse for at least another 2 years, it’s time to expand my horizons a little bit.

I just don’t really know what that means yet, but I’m hoping to identify some better habits and work a little harder this year.

Do you have a word of the year?

  1. I really like growth as being your word for 2022 because it can be applied to so many different areas of your life. You’ll grow personally, professionally, and I think you’re going to do some great things for yourself. To growth!

  2. I got the idea from your blog last year and absolutey love(d) it, so thank you 🙂
    My word of the year is “unapoligetic” because I realized that constantly apologizing for what I am or what I need hasn’t done me any good 🙂
    (which doesn’t mean I don’t say sorry when I fuck up – hope you know what I mean here :D)
