I spent a lot of 2021 upset about where I was (am) in life and was too scared to actually make any changes. I spent all of 2021 thinking about the life I wanted and the changes I could make to get that life, while ultimately doing very little about it. I was so afraid of making a move or taking a risk that could fail, that I did nothing for most of the year. I don't want that to happen this year.
As I've listened to these conversations and discussions about this past year I've heard many different metaphors or examples to explain the past two years, but the one that makes the most sense to me or that has resonated with me the most is a car accident. (I'm not sure if this is all my own idea or if someone else made the reference and it stuck with me, but the car accident metaphor is the one I've latched on to and will run with.) For the past two years, we have been living through a horrible car accident and the physical rehab that follows.
