2011 was an amazing year for me because it was the year I became an AUTHOR. And ending the year on a high note, The Waterloo Chronicle, a weekly newspaper in my old hometown, ran a story about me and my book this week. Read it here.
As January first approaches (tomorrow!!) I begin to think about my New Year’s Resolutions. Oh, I know that’s cliché, but the sense of having a fresh start when the year changes invigorates me. I make a list of goals and resolutions and am filled with optimism that I’ll follow through on them. Of course, by December 31st, there are invariably items on the list not crossed off, but that doesn’t stop me from carrying them over to my new list. And every year, I have a few new additions to my catalogue of how to be a better me.
The usual entries on my list include:
Play more piano.
Finish my craft projects.
Now that I’m an author, my 2012 list has some new additions. Such as:
Write every day!
Finish that second novel!
Use social media!
(Notice they all have exclamation marks? That’s because I need to emphasize to myself to really follow through on them.)
Laugh every day.
I hope you have a productive, successful, and laughter-filled 2012!
Are you setting any goals for 2012?
