Things we learned in 2022 and things what we're leaving behind
The end of the year is always a time to reflect on our lives, the events of the year, what we've gained, what we might have lost, and as many are set to make their resolutions or intentions for the coming year, I wanted to ask people what they have learned in 2022 and what are the main takeaways from this year as we head into 2023. So I asked some of my favorite people on Twitter in my personal growth, lifestyle blogging, and travel community what they have learned this year.
For many, this year was the year the lockdowns were lifted. For others, it meant starting new paths after the stress of the pandemic and for others, it was about trying to get back to 'normal' life after the pandemic. So many world events have happened around the world as well.

What have I learned in 2022?
On a personal level, I have learned so much about myself this year especially in terms of what I can achieve when I set my mind to it. I am also so grateful for the incredible people I have in my life. I have learned this year even more than ever that true friendship really is being able to pickup where you left off even after not seeing each other for a decade! I have worked on my uncomfortable feelings regarding public speaking, going 'live' on Instagram and Facebook, and not minding the public spotlight. I have to admit, this has NOT COME NATURALLY it's the EFT! I have been working intensively with EFT for public speaking and putting myself out there all this year and a year ago, I would never have been OK going live on Instagram :D . Looking forward to way more live events next year!~
On a professional level, I started a super intensive Level 3 Master program which has opened my eyes even further than I could have imagined and made me so incredibly grateful to have this incredible gift of confidence, clearing the emotional charge to past events, and helping people move forward. I am constantly learning from my clients who are a constant source of inspiration for me and I am blessed every day with this job.
So without further ado, let's see what people learned this 2022 to take into the new year. What about you? Leave your learnings in the comments below!
What have you learned in 2022?
What we learned about personal growth:
"Always be persistent and go after the things you want!"
“Fill your life, your feeds, and your soul with things that nourish and grow you. Love your family and love your friends, push your boundaries outward, and never stop becoming a better version of yourself.”
"Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. You’ll be surprised by the amount of support out there. And you got this!"
"Your job isn't worth your mental health. If you're sacrificing your mental health or feel unsafe in a work environment, the more you push yourself to go It's going to affect your health in all ways."
"Healing doesn't have a timeline, it takes as long as it takes and sometimes you have to heal from the same thing multiple times."
"For 2023 we are looking forward to learning more, reading more and helping more. Hopefully we can contribute at a higher level."
What we learned about professional life:
"I learned it's better to be happy than techy!"
"Be aware and inspect everything to notice the mistakes sooner."
"Consistency and helpful content is key to maintaining readership.... (and SEO is complicated!)"
Lilly I Travel for the Stars
"It’s tempting to visit as many places as possible but it’s nice to stop and smell the roses. I’ve found spending more time exploring and focusing on fewer places has been rewarding for me in many ways."
"I have learned this year that travelling within my own country is as liberating as anything I have ever done and anywhere new is exciting it doesn't matter how far a field you have to go."
What we’re looking forward to in 2023
"I want my quests for 2023 to be about finding things, although losing some of my weight around my middle would be a blessing"
