Hey everybody, Jen Hatmaker here, your Host of the For the Love Podcast. Welcome to the show. Right now, we are in a series called For the Love of Comfort and Joy. We wanted to talk about the holiday season in a way that wasn’t just more hustle and bustle, but maybe it was a little bit of respite, a little bit of relief. And for me, it definitely has been.
So, today, we’re looking back at 2021. We are talking about the big, beautiful, hard year we’ve all had as we close out our 2021 holiday series. And this is a solo episode. I am coming to the podcast community and just talking genuinely to you about my life and what 2021 has been like for me. What I’ve learned, where I am now versus where I was on this day one year ago. So I’m going to talk through some things with you, some things that I’ve been through, and my highs of this year, my lows of this year, my regrets of this year, what I’m most thankful for, where I’m at spiritually, where’s my faith at, what that looks like right now, all of it.
It is a lot to look back over the span of a whole year. I don’t know how you feel, if you feel like maybe it doesn’t feel like a lot happened, or maybe you wish you had done more, maybe you did too much, and you didn’t slow down like you wanted to. I remember, of course, when we were all happy that 2020 was over, and that we were heading out of the pandemic, and we had a different president in office, and things just seemed to be looking up. I remember thinking that about this time last year, things seemed to be looking up collectively. And then that didn’t turn out the way we thought. We’re still here.
