Let’s Catch Up for 2022


Hi, Hey, Hello! How are you all? How does it feel being in 2022? It feels pretty good to me! I’m feeling super grateful and positive about where we stand right now, compared to how dire the start of 2021 was, those really were dark days, weren’t they? As gloomy as those January days are, at least we have some freedom to get out and about and see our friends and family, and we now know how much of a luxury that is. I think that’s one of the biggest positive outlooks I’ve gained from the last couple of years, the power and importance of gratitude. Taking a few moments each day to look around and think, say or write down those things you are truly grateful for in your life is so powerful. I’ve actually found myself feeling genuinely happier than ever lately, which is such an odd thing to say in this climate, right? But I’m just acknowledging how much I have to be genuinely so grateful for each and every day, and knowing that those things are not a given, there’s many people out there struggling. We are all so fortunate in our own very different ways, and to appreciate that every day really does wonders for the old mental health.


I’m not really a ‘resolutions’ kind of gal, it’s very much New Year, Same Me, but I do love a bit of reflection and goal setting. This year I wanted to look a bit further ahead and start setting goals for the long term as well as just the year ahead. I bought myself a manifestation diary which has a load of great goal setting prompts and tasks at the start, and space for reflection every 90 days, which I think will be really interesting to look back on at the end of 2022, and hopefully really help to keep me focused on the long term goals I want to achieve.  I’ve been reading and consuming a lot of content around manifestation in general over the past month or so, and it’s something I really want to keep up with. Like everyone else, I read The Secret years ago (wouldn’t recommend by the way, just read a summary online, it’s super repetitive), of which the premise is that you can achieve whatever you want in this world, as long as you keep putting it our there to the universe and keep your mind focussed on the fact that you will receive that thing. While I can’t lie, I am sceptical, I do thing regardless of whether it’s real, it is an amazing tool for focus and positivity, which in my eyes can only be a good thing. So with that being said, I’m totally on board the manifestation train from 2022. Who’s with me?



I’m feeling all of that January motivation for my blog this year, and am excited to get writing again. Whenever I get distracted with life and neglect my blog, I always miss it so much, this space is a little safe haven for me and an outlet for me to pour my brain onto a page and be creative. So it’s definitely a priority of mine to keep up with this year, I hope you’ll be here to see it! I also really need to get my arse into gear with fitness agin this year, I used to love running so much, as you might know if you’ve been around here for a while, but since I moved house at the back end of 2020, I have well and truly fallen off the wagon. Getting back into fitness is such a mental struggle isn’t it? I feel like there’s a big wall in front of me that I need to knock down before I get started again, but I know it’s just all in my head and I’m ultimately being lazy with it. Winter doesn’t make that any easier though either! I’ll get there in the end… I hope.


How are you feeling about the new year? What are your plans for 2022?
