Maggie does the honors today, despite the fact that she’s in Charleston visiting family (and presumably having a good time). Here’s what she told us to do:
Here we are closing in on 2022, hopefully looking forward to what the new year will bring. Preparing for a new year often entails looking back over the past year.
So, today, we are throwing back only one year.
- Tell me what you loved about 2022.
- Do you have regrets?
- What did you lose?
- What did you gain?
- What was your greatest accomplishment?
- How was your balance between happiness and sadness?
- And lastly, what are you happy to leave behind and what do you look forward to?
- Anything more you want to add?
I don’t know that I can say that I loved anything about 2022, any more than I can say that I hated anything about it. I spent just about all of it at home, which isn’t really that much diferent from 2021 or 2020. That wasn’t so much in fear of the blasted coronavirus as it was because I really had no reason to go anywhere. I went to the dentist several times and to the doctor for my annual checkup, at which point the only thing they found that was wrong as that my creatinine level was high. What that means, I don’t know, but I am supposed to have another blood test in the new year.
I have no regrets from the last year, nor did I gain or lose anything of great significance. My greatest accomplishment was reaching 6000 posts on this here blog, my one major project for the last several years.
My happy-sad balance was good: mostly happy, not too much sad. And, there’s othing I really need to leave behind, nor is there anything I’m particularly looking forward to in 2023.
Gee, I’m boring. I feel like I need to do something about that. Maybe the issue is that I don’t remember anything especially interesting about the year. Guess I’m unprepared in that regard. That’s something to look into for next year…
