How has your year started out? Mine has been a lot of quiet ~ that’s okay. A whole lot of thinking ~ I’d be doing that anyway, so nothing new there. A whole lot of reading ~ yes, please! Some new approaches to frugality ~ inflation is leaving no choice here. Feeling a whole lot of gratitude ~ giving the Lord my thank you everyday! Got my booster shot ~ yikes! (Sometimes doing what one feels is best doesn’t feel so good, does it? But I’m counting the blessings, not the aches!) Oh! And my Christmas cactus has 3 buds. I’m waiting very patiently for my January flowers!
Stay Inspired dear hearts, and be good to one another. All my best!
I lean more toward soft goals for a new year (if I make them at all). I remember writing a list as a child. Like – that was the thing people did decades ago. HA! But you know, after the 2nd of January, goals were forgotten.
My goals for 2022 are almost singularly author goals. Goals set around an outlet that gives me joy in this crazy world. See how I’m setting my sights around happiness rather than discipline here? HA!
But I have another goal. I’m not a great consumer. I’m a minimalist. More than ever nowadays. I do buy books & music (that whole joy thing). But my primary spend is food and personal care items.
The goal? I know you’re feeling that inflation like me. Yikes! 2022 will be a year of considering value vs. convenience, and comparison shopping, etc. And that’s the way it’s got to be. But I’m still going to make sure there’s joy. Just smart joy.
