My word for 2022 came to me in December as I was reading a post on The Spectacled Bean.
What would my word for 2022 be, I wondered . . . Oh wait, the laundry needed to be changed.
. . .
Right. A word. 2022. That was what I was thinking about. What should . . . Oh, but then my husband was going to the grocery store. I just needed to tell him we need milk.
. . .
Back again. Think, think, think. What would . . . Sorry. A notification popped into my computer screen. I needed to respond to that.
. . .
If only I could focus, I thought.
One thing at a time. Multi-tasking is a myth. I aim for a more productive 2022 as a result.
Do you have word for 2022?
Truthfully, I face “monkey mind” all the time, as you describe in your post. It’s funny, except when it’s not.
I like your word choice for 2022. It was my guide word for 2017 and served me well:
Next week I’ll reveal my special word for the year. In the meantime, have a good weekend, Arlene!
Oh, you have piqued my curiosity. I will wait to see what you have chosen. I’ll have to report in at the end of 2022 to see how the word has served me.
You get a pat on the back for that!
Thanks for the shout out. I could use some of your FOCUS to combine with my ENJOY so that maybe I’d accomplish SOMETHING. Been feeling scattered this week, must focus on my goals more.
I have come to realize that when I resolve to FOCUS on something, then other things need to wait for me to get to them. As a result, it’s taken some time for me to respond to your comment, as I was focusing on other things! I guess my focus is working? With unintended side effects. Some things are finished and finished well, other things are waiting. Interesting.
After this spell of domestic and global distractions I think my word for 2022 will have to be FINISH! With this top of mind I hope to see to my many dangling ends and ignore all of those enticing new beginnings! Thanks for the nudge!
Oooh, a good word indeed. It’s related to mine, in a way, in that if I focus, I might actually finish something, instead of leaving many things have done.
My mantra for 2022 (to keep anxiety at bay) is: “it’s all good”…. ✨
Nice. And it IS all good, even when it doesn’t feel like it sometimes right away. Happy 2022.
