Four years ago I started making a “New Year’s Playlist” rather than a resolution. The playlist is associated with the vibe I want for the upcoming year. It is a living list–it will start with a few songs and will grow as I am inspired by songs I hear as I live out my vision for the year.
So, what is my vision for 2022? I am glad you asked! Here it is:
I am going to be a warrior in 2022, fighting for my own wellness, for our students, educators and families, and the health and happiness of those I love. A warrior. Watch out 2022.
I encourage you to check out the full post about making a New Year’s Playlist, but this snippet will give you the gist:
This year, I am trying something different. My New Year’s resolution will not be a goal. It will not be “one word”. If those strategies work for you, go for it. I admire people who can set goals for the new year and even remember them come March.
Instead, my New Year’s resolution will be a playlist of songs that reflect the values I will focus on this year–my “Person I want to be in 2018” playlist. Songs to be played when I am getting ready in the morning, when I am doing mundane jobs like the dishes, when I am exercising. I will make Musical.ly videos to these songs. I will play them on my JammyPack at school for staff and students. They will be etched into the fabric of my every day, helping to point me in the direction I want to go.-Serendipity in Education; December 27, 2017
Reading this post makes me miss Musical.ly all the more, but maybe I will make some TikTok videos with my “Warrior” songs. My teenage sons can only hope. Here are a few songs that have already been added to my “Warrior 2022” playlist:
“Don’t Give Up on Me” by Andy Grammer
“Never Surrender” by Shangrii-La
“Superwoman” by Alicia Keys
“Leave the Door Open” by Bruno Mars
“I Am Yours” by NEEDTOBREATHE
What vibe are you going to create for 2022? What songs will you add to your New Year’s Playlist? Do you have “Warrior” song suggestions for me? Share your ideas with me at #SerendipityEDU–I love being inspired by YOU! We are so much better together.
Happy New Year! Cheers to 2022!
