Books I Read in 2022
Jan 11, 2023
Welcome to 2023.
How have you spent the first week of 2023? I’ve been taking it easy and enjoying these last precious days with Ethan before he heads back to college.
I’ve been easing delicately into the new year. I’m moving slowly, aware that we are in winter and so is my body. I’ve been sleeping in, making home cooked hearty meals, finishing my Reflection Ritual, and hanging out in my cozy robe a little more.
I will not be starting any new habits or officially setting any 2023 goals until the lunar new year on January 21st or my birthday which is February 1st. Right now is about sitting with stillness to tune in to what I really want. I allow myself space to dream, imagine, and BE.
But there are two things I do in the first week of January.
- I crack open and write my name in my new Agendio planner. I made it in November and it’s been sitting under my tree since. I could never find a planner that had all the things I wanted to cover both my personal life and my business, so I created my own. I wrote about what I did. Click here if you want to read about it.
- I’ve also started a new list of 2023 books I want to read. I love to read, and even though I listen to more audiobooks now, it's always been a passion. I have a page for keeping track of the books I read each year along with a wish list when I get good recommendations. As I transition from one planner to another, I looked at my list from 2022. I try to read/listen to 20 books a year. I didn't quite hit my goal but I think that's because I 'm listening to so many podcasts these days and I took a priestess temple guide training as well.
A great January book is Shonda Rhimes Year of Yes. It was funny, and inspiring, and invites us to take a look at what areas of our life needed vitality. What do you want to say YES to this year
Here are some of the books I enjoyed in 2022 in no particular order.
- A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
