I shared my word of the year for 2022 on Instagram several days ago and am late sharing here. 

*backs up & starts over*

Hi y’all… I really do enjoy writing and sharing but 2021 was insane.  My word last year FAMILY took on a life of its own in late July. I moved back in with my parents to help them with life. I never imagined that I would still be here all of these months later. 

I am glad that I am able to be here for them but miss my husband and pups. I am working toward my ultimate goal of a home for us out here. Plugging away. 

As 2021 drew to a close, two words kept reappearing in my thoughts. Very much in the same way as FAMILY did before. I tried to steer my word in other directions but nothing else felt right. At times my word felt selfish but then I would mention the idea to my mom and she would deny that thought saying that it was necessary. 

Before I share my word, let’s look back at my past words of the year. 

My word for this year makes perfect sense in retrospect. It was something I desperately needed after focusing so much time and attention on others. 

And the six words following it… are a simple reminder should anyone have negative words to say about the subject. ;)
