Need some motivation to set awesome goals for 2022? We asked our members to tell us recent accomplishments that they were most proud of, no matter the size of the celebration. After reading through hundreds of responses of all the amazing things you have accomplished, it has inspired us! So, instead of keeping them to ourselves, we decided to celebrate our community members' accomplishments with this blog post. We see you, we hear you, and we are immensely proud of you for overcoming adversity and making it through another unpredictable year!
I believe that it is necessary to celebrate achievements and I always do. It's kind of like a reward for the work I've done. I, for example, turned in my DNP Capstone Project and am very happy about it. I really didn't know how I did it at first and what I got out of it, but now I think I've earned one day of celebration. Of course I went to the guys who provide the capstone writing service. And you could say I did nothing because I was confident in their abilities. But I think it's to my credit as well. Now I will be able to work in my specialty.
Living intentionally in the moment with a chronic illness is my goal for 2022. My 'word' for 2022 is 'present.'
I am the wife and caregiver to a 100% disabled veteran. I am so thankful that no matter what, I choose to smile through all the rough times we go through, and try to never let them get me down. Smile it increases your face value. :)
I suffer from a chronic, debilitating disease that leaves me feeling severely depressed most days and lacking confidence. Throughout 2021, I tried to practice more self care and to be kinder to myself. My 'word' for 2022 would be worthy. I am worthy of feeling good about myself and taking time to work on myself. I am also learning that life is beautiful and worth living even on my hardest days.
I opened a cookie bakery in 2021 and made it to our first anniversary this past January!
I have wanted to go to Egypt for years and finally made it; we got home on Monday. My accomplishment, with the help from my kids, was to climb some steps and to go inside a pyramid. I feel good that I walked and saw so much at my age, 83.
Positive- Trying to be positive and look for positive in everything
My goal this year is to continue to improve in my recovery after being bed ridden for the last 3 years . 3 years ago I got Cushings disease and almost died . I overcame my Cushings but continued to be sick unable to do simple tasks . However I finally got my diagnosis Sept 2021. I was diagnosed with Adult Growth Hormone Deficiency and have been on treatment now for 4/12 mths and I'm back on my feet living my life again , cooking for my family and so many other things . I'm also down 32 pounds and getting stronger every day . I'm looking forward to this new year and seeing what plans God has in store .
My word for the year is patience. Trying to take each day as it comes. Let go of the past, look forward to the future, and live in the present.
My word for this year is perspective. "There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception" Aldous Huxley
my word is "enjoy" I need to take time to enjoy the life I have created, kind of stop to smell the roses type thing!
Being a better version of myself than I was years ago
I am striving to be kinder to myself and to carve out some "me" time every day.
I lost 30 pounds and I've kept it off somehow!
Putting faith in God alone will get you through even the hardest of trials!
