2022 was my year of healing & happiness.
Towards the end of the summer of 2021, I realized that very little about my life was working for me. I spent years meticulously and painstakingly building myself into a golden prison. I felt exhausted and drained most of the time.
When I got honest with myself about what actually made me happy and my real priorities, I realized that almost nothing in my life matched up.
The last half of 2021 became all about breaking free. Breaking free from the life I thought I wanted. The life I had worked so damn hard to create.
Part of my breaking free was leaving my marriage, selling my primary business, and moving to a new city (San Juan). And part of it was going on a long deep healing journey to heal all of the woundings that led me to create a golden prison for myself.
I’m proud to report that I’ve emerged 2022 transformed in so many ways and I’m emotionally, mentally & physically healthier and happier than I’ve ever been.
As I kick off 2023 this week, I’ve been thinking about what I’m most grateful for and what I most value.
The top of the list: MY FRIENDSHIPS! This year I’ve grown my inner circle and created deep meaningful and fulfilling relationships with each of them. The kind of relationships that last lifetimes, and thank God because simply put… they make life better. And they make me better.
Pictured here are two of them. 2020 & 2021 were the two hardest years of my adult life. These two carried me through the darkness and into 2022 which was the most healing and transformative year of my life thus far.
I will forever be grateful to them, and the rest of my inner circle, for consistently showing up for me on the best days, the worst days, and all of the days in between.
If you don’t have a rock-solid inner circle, I encourage you to make it a priority this new year. Life is hard. But with the right inner circle, it’s easier, and a lot more fun.
Heading into 2023 ready to make moves.
My words for 2022 were healing & happiness, and I’m proud to report that I got both.
My word for this year: EMPOWERMENT
Earl Nightingale once said… “There will come a time in your life when you’ll have the opportunity to accomplish more in 12 months than in the previous 12 years.”
This might be my year.
