Thursday Favorite Things (TFT) Link Party #523

 Happy TFT day everyone!

How has your week been?  This week, while trying to choose my word for 2022 (which I’m not sure I’ve ever done before, by the way), I had settled on the word “consistent”  because I want to be more consistent in everything. BUT, every day I audibly tell myself to focus (“FOCUS Pam!”), so maybe “focus” is more appropriate. 

I have so many plans for my blog this year (I’m in the midst of a blog makeover- AHHHH!), and last week, I mentioned I have a lot of  goals for myself – creative goals, health goals, relationship goals, personal growth goals. 

And, by the way, this whole blog makeover thing is creating a lot of mixed emotions. I’m so excited because I haven’t changed my blog in a long time. But,change is hard, and change is scary (at least for me.)  My blog design hasn’t changed in years, and it’s kind of part of me. Comfortable and familiar. But, I think the new design will be easier to navigate and a bit more fun, too. So, I’m excited!

Anyway, I feel like focus is going to be really important for me this year, if I want to make time for all of the creative and interesting and healthy things I want to do. So, yes, consistency will be very important, but firstly, I need to focus – focus on what is important and healthy and good. Did you choose a word for 2022?

I still haven’t taken down my Christmas decorations. I don’t want to let go just yet. It was so nice to gather together again. Even Sunny had a special Christmas, although she mostly napped!
