What 2022 Has Taught Me

2022 has been one of those years where I have learned so much more than I imagined, and since I am trying to get back into blogging and sharing my life (and thoughts) with you…I thought this would be a great post to have as 2022 is drawing to a close.

What 2022 has taught me…

  • DO IT AFRAID! Whatever it is you want to do, that dream you want to pursue, even if you have to do it afraid!
  • Be a blessing anytime you can. You will never regret it.
  • Treasure the true friends, it seems they are hard to find in this world so when you come across that person (or persons) that values you, treats you good, makes time for you, checks in on you, and will stand up for you even when it puts them in a hard position…hold onto them. Make sure you are that for them too!
  • Your best will never be good enough for some people. It’s okay!
  • You can be good to people, but it doesn’t mean they will be good back to you. Don’t let them change you.
  • You can be sad over the loss of a friendship, even if it’s better for your mental health to cut ties.
  •  There is no set time limit on grief or the pain. Don’t let anyone make you feel as if you should be over a loss or a deep hurt! Everyone’s healing process and time limit are different.
  • When things go wrong, they may not always be able to be fixed….and maybe they aren’t supposed to be and that’s okay.
  • It’s okay to not be okay. This is a big one for me…and I struggle with this, I like to be okay…but I am finding it’s okay to have days where I am very far from okay….and admitting that is what will help me through.
  • Focus on the good, in the midst of the not-so-good.  WE WILL get through the bad/hard times.
  • Toxic people teach us lessons. Learn from them. Learn what you don’t want to be like!
  • If someone can lie about something little, they can lie about something not-so-little!
  • The hardest struggles show just how strong we can be!
  • Give love freely, without stipulations. The world needs so much more of it, because there is so much hate. Even if you have to love from afar, you can still show love.
  • Letting someone gossip about another without speaking up…is no different than if you were doing the gossiping yourself.
  • God will reveal things and people that don’t line up with his plan, so he can cut out what is hindering us.
  • It can be lonely when you won’t feed into the drama someone wants you do, or when you stand up for someone that isn’t there to stand up for themselves…do it anyway. The right people will take the place of the wrong people, in time.
  • Sometimes what looks like the end of the road, is God directing you down a different path.
  • Everyday may not be good, but there is something good in every day. So, when you are struggling, find whatever good you can! It might be listening to a song that makes you smile or just chatting with a friend.

2022 has been one of those eye opening years for me. I have prayed, I have cried, I have laughed, I have gotten hurt, I have lost trust in people, I have been lonely, I have made memories, I have poured into others, the list could go on and on about the ups and downs in 2022.

Leave a comment letting us know what 2022 has taught you…whether it was a lesson or a blessin’

Here’s to wishing everyone a very blessed and happy 2023!
