Focus is my word for 2022, it's what I'm striving to find this year. What I'm struggling to regain. Sometimes we get so far off the track we thought we were on that we have to stop and completely readjust. That’s what I've been doing lately and you know what, it’s going pretty well.
I’ve gotten better at managing my time. I’ve gotten better at managing my stress. I am working on my health and all the mess that comes with chronic conditions. I’ve taken more time to do things that I find peace in, like quilting and sewing. I’ve worried less about reading trending books. I’ve also spent a little less time stressing over social media, allowing myself a little bit of space.
I’m still writing, working through the mess of unfinished projects from last year that I couldn't get my brain to finish. Things are coming along better now, just at a more leisurely pace. It’s not like I need to be in a hurry, it’s really not a race, and I can’t tell you how great it feels to put a few words down and walk away without feeling like I'm not working hard enough. These past couple years have been a massive weight on all our shoulders, if you say none of it bothered you, you're probably lying. So you deserve to take a moment, breathe, and find your focus again.
