It has been a beautiful rainy day and the perfect end to 2022. It is as if the rain is washing away all the challenges that came with 2022. So in three hours, we will be saying Goodbye to 2022. And I wanted to stop by and usher out the old with you.
I saw an Instagram post of a woman begging God for a better year—I felt that in many, many ways. But, unfortunately, 2022 has been real and not in the best of ways, well, for some of us.
Robin Sharma said, “Don’t live the same year 75 times and call it a life.” It is like I lived in 2021 again, with minute changes and even more challenges. But I am thankful for 2022. Because it has challenged me in ways, I was unprepared for, made me more aware, and taught me lessons that have forever changed me.
And I certainly do not want to live these past two years over again. So I am heading into the New Year not with many goals but with humility and perspective. I have a deeper understanding of life in a small but meaningful way. And an openness I never thought I had.
So with every one of you, let us say our Goodbyes to 2022. So many of you have had an incredible year, which is fantastic. I could not be happier for you. But some of us have had it and are looking forward to a better tomorrow. So my dahlings, whatever challenges you faced this year, know that there is room in every story for a better ending, and change will visit soon. After all, change is the essence of life.
Just before I hit publish, I needed some water. So I got up, and my glasses fell and broke—I could only say Goodbye to 2022 and laugh.
Good night Dahlings. I am not sure what the rest of this night will bring. However, I will enjoy a late dinner and an extra dirty Martini. Cheers!
