Benjamin from Brother’s Campfire here!
Today is a day of benchmarking and reflecting on the year. I am not sure if the new year will allow it on the right date. (If there is a right date)
At the beginning of the year, I resolved to live for God, improve my skills and get a better job, create a garden club, lose 30 pounds and walk 50 miles in 24 hours.
I didn’t get all that done; here’s what really happened.
January- Got Covid
February- Lost 17 pounds. ( I lost a total of 30 this year and kept 20 off)
March- Got A New Job As A Volunteer Coordinator
April- Learned A Little About Empathy And Had My Gall Bladder Removed.
May- Began Learning About Pottery And Processing Raw Material For The Art
June- Celebrated Our 17th Anniversary By Wilderness Backpacking
July- We Patched Up A Duck That Took On A Dog
August- I Try My Hand At Forging
September- The Pottery Starts Looking Good
October-Was Spent In Reflection And Nothing Was Posted
November-I wrote What I Love About My Beloved
December- I Advocated For My Beloved
Did I meet any of my goals? Not really, but I think I was a good steward of my time.

Blimey, what an eventful year you have had. I’m exhausted just reading it. Hope that 2022 brings you some pleasant surprises, Benjamin.
Thanks Hobbo! I still want to do the 50-mile hike in one day, but priorities have changed a lot!
👍 Good Luck. One thing at a time! .🙂
Great reflection..I may adopt your format to do a year in review post.

And life makes us learn lessons 🤨🙄 I do not like those lessons / but they do teach us things and maybe brighten the world eventually ? 🙏🙏
Hopefully, I learned enough lessons to carry me through for a while! 🤠🔥📖📖📖
