A New Year! A New 2022 Focus (It is About Being Me)!

Happy new year (five days late), everyone! First, I hope you enjoyed your holidays in a colorful way. Secondly, hopefully, you also got to enjoy some much-deserved downtime. Our family had a fantastic long winter break and made many memories. Today is the first day back to school for our daughter, so it feels like a new year all over again for me! Therefore, for me, being that it is a quasi-new year today means the opportunity to start anew. This includes a fun, important 2022 focus I have been working on for a long time for me.

What is this fun, important focus?

A new focus? Huh?

Of course, we have all heard of new year resolutions and goals. Admittedly, I have never been successful at this start-of-the-year resolution or goal thing. Moreover, although my intentions are sincere, the self-inflicted pressure of one big resolution overwhelms me, and my anxiety skyrockets. Therefore, I find myself not choosing to proactively make myself more anxious than I already am!

Naturally, the idea of my 2022 focus started pushing its way to the forefront of my mind in an exciting way. Moreover, it took zero thought to what this focus is for me. It has been a focus of mine for some time. Each year, I get closer and closer to realizing how this focus overpowers everything else. It is what makes me happy and the person I have the opportunity to be for both my family and me.

However, it is not a cut-and-dry focus. It is a focus that will be ongoing. In fact, this focus will be the biggest part of me for the rest of my life.

My 2022 focus? Being me!

Being me!

Yep, that is right. It is finally time for me to be me! What does being me mean to me (it is beginning to sound like a tongue twister!)?

First, throughout my life, I have dealt with many ups and downs like everyone.

Additionally, I have experienced crippling depression and anxiety for long periods of time. Tack on many years of painful infertility, surgeries, medications, injections (so many injections), and the traumatic loss of our beautiful, son JJ in Heaven, and I lost much of myself emotionally, mentally, and physically.

The real me is colorful, happy, positive, fun-in-the-sun, a loud laugher, and always up for a new adventure; big or small. I am different and unique and love my family and friends. I love creativity, connecting with people, and sharing my love of all things fun and colorful! Things that make me happy are not always things that make other people happy, and that is A-OK.

The real me also gets overwhelmed, has off-days, requires sleep, and craves a regular connection with my family and friends.

Most importantly, my family is my everything. Our daughter is my sidekick, and she is my drive to be me. Watching her watch me the past seven-plus years has given me the overwhelming clarity to do everything in my power to be me.
