thought of the week: work for it

i cannot believe that as i type this, it is the final day of 2022. if you’ve been following along for awhile, you know that the end of each calendar year is not a huge deal to me. i consider my new year to start when my birthday rolls around (on february 13th). even still, there was a theme i took note of this year.

i may have snagged this quote back in april but i circled back to it repeatedly throughout the year.

“good things come to those who work for it.” –the blondie shop

i stepped into 2022 ready to work. i was just getting my footing at a new job (and literally getting my footing while learning how to walk again). then, in march, i was contacted about a job opportunity at my alma mater and couldn’t say no. during the spring, i was moving at a mile a minute both at work and personally. by summer, i was trying to pack in as much as i could before my move back to the bay. since returning, i have been working with a team to revamp the way mental health is approached at this university and it has been equal parts rewarding and exhausting. all year, i have made an effort to prioritize my health. i am fortunate to have the guidance of an extraordinary wellness coach/trainer, angel from grit and gratitude. the one steady thing this year? busting my ass to make an impact and to get what i want. amidst the chaos, i am starting to see things come together.

while there was so much unexpected change this year, i am confident that i landed exactly where i needed to be. you will be seeing more of me this year – i made a pact with my twin about getting back into a blogging groove (and we’ve never made a promise to each other that we didn’t keep).

cheers to 2023! 🥂

xoxo,

k. tap
