50 Things I’m Looking Forward to in 2022

Anticipating an experience can be as much fun as the experience itself. As we embark on a new year, here are fifty things (big and small) I’m looking forward to in 2022:

Things *in general* getting better

Seeing my brother and sister in person more often

Running my 14th half marathon

Continuing our family zoom sessions

Reconnecting with the friends and family I’ve lost touch with

Volunteering in the community

Deepening my meditation practice

A trip to New York City

Continuing to learn and grow with my coworkers

Attending the Association for Talent Development national conference

My parent’s 50th wedding anniversary

New clothes – seriously, I’m still making my pre-pandemic stuff work somehow

Being more intentional about taking time off throughout the year

Facilitating Dare to Lead sessions at work

Having lunch in our newly renovated employee cafe

Taking some sort of art class

My 4th, 5th, and 6th Covid vaccine *half kidding*

Getting back into swimming in the summer

My three year anniversary at H-E-B

Participating in an in-person yoga class

Visiting the Texas coast in the spring or summer

Getting rid of the junk I’ve accumulated the last few years

Keeping my house plants alive and buying more

Taking more photos and sharing them

Starting a quarterly reflection practice

Writing and sharing more often

Getting involved in the UTSA community

Watching the Spurs get better

Long walks to clear my head

Completing my goal to visit every state park within 2 hours

Climbing Guadalupe Peak

Reading more books than I read last year

Tinting my car windows – the Texas sun is no joke!

Getting a dog

A destination hike

Continuing to get better at cooking and baking

Quiet mornings

Mentoring someone

Figuring out how to use all the features on my new camera

The music I’ll discover and play endlessly on repeat

Maybe, perhaps, possibly, going to a UTSA football game

Learning new things

Thousands of kettlebell swings

Camping for the first time since I was a kid

My first trip to Big Bend

Quality time with family and friends

Visiting a museum

Attempting to make conchas for the second time

Sunrises and sunsets

Facilitating an in-person workshop for the first time in two years; 2022 is the year!!!
