What is my word of the year again?

I literally asked myself this question the other day, and I had to go through my photos to remind myself that I had selected CONNECTION as my word of 2022. I laughed at myself for forgetting my own word. But then I instantly felt that I had been living with this as my driving force without being consciously focused on it.

Since this year began, I feel like I have been running a marathon that finally hit a break when a four-day weekend appeared like a mirage in mid-February. While being so busy getting back into work, during a COVID surge, I have also gravitated towards connections with friends and family as much as possible. I’ve had fun play dates with my 3-year old nephew, I have met up with friends for dinner and brunch and walks all over town, and I have been planning and booking upcoming trips to spend more quality time with friends. I can’t wait for those connections!

To me, I know that this is the right word for me because it comes naturally as something I want and need to feel fulfilled. I’m grateful for the big and small connections and seeing the positives amongst the first rough weeks of this year.
