For the last several years I’ve had a Word of the Year. I haven’t done a heck of a lot with those words but it makes me feel better to start a new year with some motivation. Unlike resolutions, words don’t commit you to goals. As with previous years, I used a generator to come up with my 2022 Word of the Year.

I’m ready to step up and step out – to grow in big, bold ways and to show off in the things I’ve committed myself to. It’s time to take my job as a wife and mom up a notch. I ADORE my job at the elementary school (and not just because I have the best boss) but I’m ready ramp up my confidence in my role there. In 2021, I only published ten posts here at SensiblySara. When I took a full time position out of the house, I promised myself I’d keep the blog going. I’ve failed at that. 2022 is my year to bring it back and FLOURISH. There’s no telling what this year has in store for myself and my family but I sure hope the year has more positives and negatives!
