There are just a few days left until 2022. It’s been quite a year. I keep thinking how each time we think that “normal” life is right around the corner, we find out that the goal line has been moved.
Each year, I select a word or words that reflect my aspirations for the year. My words for 2021 were Resiliency and Choose Health. And so each time a choice came up, I would decide my direction based on these words. And for sure, I was resilient. Flying Goat Farm was resilient. We pivoted to provide better online access for customers. We had zoom meetings for groups of friends and knitting groups. We even took our in person classes and put them online. Each time there was a surge, we chose health by asking customers to mask up and to socially distance. It was important to us to provide a safe place for ourselves and for our customers.
My words for 2022? Well my word is Create. This means that I will continue to create beautiful yarn and roving. I will continue to create educational content, like these blogs, my podcast, my FaceBook LIVE Thursdays and classes that are in person and online. I promise to make that content relevant to you whether you are a knitter, crocheter, spinner or even any other crafter.
Do you have a word for 2022? I’d love to hear about it!!
We are on the cusp of a new decade with only 4 days until we start the new year. At this time, each year, I reflect about last year and I look ahead to next year. I’ve picked a word of phrase of the year for maybe 8 years and it has served as a guiding light or North Star for me as a navigate the next year.
This year I decided that I needed a personal word of the year. Not just a business one. Why? Because I’m think I am needing to create more balance in my life. Enough work and enough time for leisure or fun, downtime to recharge and relax too.
So TA DA!!! My personal word of the year is SAVOR! And probably with the exclamation point too! What I mean is this. Savoring in taste. Savoring in sights. Savoring our vacations. Tasting with your mouth and smelling with your nose, and delighting with your eyes. And dancing with your feet. And listening to beautiful music. I absolutely love to see new sights. I love to taste new foods. I want to savor these things. I want to smell the roses and taste the peaches. I want to sail on a European river and spend time with people who are different than I am. Who hold different beliefs than I do. And yes, listen to glorious music. And sew beautiful fabrics. Life is short and I want to savor it all!
