Nah, my reset happened a couple years ago! Hi friends! The last two years have been unique, for sure, but my life was already in rapid change mode starting late spring of 2019. I did an interview just touching on the surface of the subject, so feel free to DM me (@satiatedblonde) if you want more on that. I haven't shared my story yet here in this space, mostly, because it's a challenging (yet wonderful) thing to share and I am still processing the life changing events... yes, years later.
Anyways, since then, even amongst all the chaos, I have come to appreciate so much more in life and things have really been amazing. Yes, I have bad days (normally not the whole day, just an hour or so haha) and yes, I'm impatient sometimes. But I've learned so much and look at things through a different lens. There have been so many wonderful things that have happened since then, most of them too personal to share on a world-wide post, but so many things have shifted for the better.
Just like anything, it's not all amazing all the time. I've had quite a few growth challenges. And I know it's for the better in the end, but man, during the moment it's not. But ya know what? I know who my true friends are, and while it's taken a good decade to develop, I have a group of amazing women friends who don't think I'm too weird...for example bone broth hot chocolate didn't send up radars and questions for them haha. I've had the opportunity to work with an amazing company, have enjoyed sharing my favorites more than ever, and have the time and space to experiment with things that make me happy--recently sourdough, marmalade, and whatever else I think up.
Anyways, how am I resetting in 2022? Well, I was never one who needed the new year to try new things, or set "goals," or whatever. For example, I started exercising regularly again back in October, then in early December, I started teaching myself piano. I am planning on keeping both of those up, of course, along with a few other things. Here's a list of my plans for the year:
Continue regular movement
Continue piano practice
Read more (anything would be considered more, given the pace I'm at right now, but I have been stuck in the middle of about 7 books, so finishing those is a start)
Refine my fermenting skills
Daily devotional (My mom bought a group of us this book and we have a group chat where we discuss it daily. We're only a little ways in, but it brings me so much joy)
Post to my site more regularly (So far, my plan is to post on Sundays... and maybe on Tuesdays as a bonus. We'll see how it goes, but if you've been here for awhile, you know regular posting is not my strong suit)
Propagate more plants: Last year I did snake plants, monsteras, and peace lilies. I am planning on doing more monsteras for sure because my mother plant is out of control haha, but also some spiderwort, spider plant, and possibly a fiddle leaf fig and a bromeliad! Who knows what else I may come across! To feed my inspiration, I am really enjoying learning from the Plant School Podcast.
Anomalous action: I found out about this from a podcast, but basically each day I am going to do something differently, or uniquely in a way I never have. If you think about it, really even if you have a routine, every day is so precious and filled with opportunities to have new experiences. So by this I mean having a true intention of going out of my way to do something different. For example, so far this year I have: learned how to use our new coffee maker, made persimmon bread & jam, re-organized the pantry, and learned a new song on the piano *almost* everyday -- so nothing outrageous, but different, for sure.
There's more, but some things are personal, lol. Anyways, I am looking forward to the "new year" but also, every day is a reset, a fresh start! Anything new you have planned for 2022? Let me know in the comments and as always, #GetSatiated.
