What’s the Greatest Gift 2022 Has Given You? 

 In Uncategorized

While COVID-19 still looms in the background, many of us experienced a full year of a “new normal” in 2022 – and holiday celebrations with friends and loved ones will be in full swing this month. 

The Springtide Team was asked what the best gift 2022 gave them, and here’s what they had to say:

2022 gave me the gift of seeing my son turn 1 and enter toddlerhood. My greatest joy is sharing the everyday moments with him: dance parties in the kitchen, walks to the park, and reading board books together. His curiosity for the world slows me down and helps me to live in the moment. 2022 also gave my family the gift of becoming first-time homeowners- we're set to move in right before the end of the year. If Argentina can win the World Cup, then that will be the cherry on top of 2022!

2022 gave me the gift of patience, clarity, and the strength to lead with my values. Like so many others, our family has been through a lot this year and through it all we continue to find that when we lead with what truly matters, we come out shining...or at least not dull.

2022 gave me the gift of enjoying life in the moment. After two years of trying to push ahead and get to the other side of the pandemic and its chaos, I found that 2022 brought time to appreciate the present; to slow down and take advantage of time with friends and family.

2022 provided new challenges, but also trusted friends to walk through those challenges with who led with empathy.

The greatest gift 2022 gave me was finding my core values of courage and curiosity. Courage to try new things, courage to see situations in a helpful light, courage to reframe things that don't go smoothly into a lens that allows me to learn. Curiosity to continually ask "what could be" and "how can we try this thing" without being held back by fear.

2022 brought the gift of traveling adventures (14 trips in 12 months!) and new ideas on what it means to move about in this world and in life. This year has brought many changes, but it also the gift of reassurance that I’m on the right path in many ways. I look forward to the journey that 2023 holds!
