Welcome to 2022! Is it possible to hope for a better year?? Or is that just wishful thinking at this point?
I'm happy for a new year and a new planner to try to make my life a little less chaotic. Keep my street teams straight (I'm on 4 at the moment, I love it so much!!!), keep my family schedule straight, and try to plan life out as much as possible hahaha I use the Happy Planner and have for many years, I truly enjoy how easy it is to write things in the day to day and how pretty the designs are!
This month I have a small goal to read more indie books than traditionally published ones. I've done pretty well and I still have a LOT of ARCs to finish to make sure I keep a good standing with NetGalley, and I have enjoyed my membership immensely and I'm grateful for the opportunity to read more amazing books!
I don't have many goals for the year. I am very hesitant to make goals because I am very hard on myself if I don't accomplish them, so I try to just kinda generally throw ideas out to the universe instead of full blown goals. Just being in survival mode for the past few years has kinda made it hard to look too far into the future just in case, ya know, life happens hahaha
The past couple years I've used my books to help me escape and while I will still use them for such, I'm looking forward to having some other grounding methods and coping mechanisms.
These bookcases, other than our office redo, were the best purchase of last year for sure! I've enjoyed decorating them and filing them with so many amazing stories. I've met so many amazing people through the social media circles of the book community and for that I am so grateful, especially so many indie authors and those friendships are so precious to me.
This year will be better than the previous ones. One thing I decided for myself for this year however was to finally put my mental health at the forefront and to help myself. With that in mind, I have my first therapy session scheduled and I am so excited and terrified at the same time. I've wanted this for so long that I'm worried it won't work or help me, but I know eventually it will. If I'm open enough and willing to work hard this will absolutely help me handle my anxiety and hopefully my depression too. Happy New Year everyone!
