HAPPY NEW YEAR
I know I’m late on the well wishes (sigh) but better late than never I always say. I have a perfectly good reason but it’s moot now. All is good. I’m on and I’m blogging. woot woot
Do people still make resolutions?
I mean, this is when one usually makes them, right?
People usually ask me what my resolutions are but I’ve begun noticing this trend, especially now that I’m getting a tad (yes I said a tad) older..nobody asks me anymore.
Perhaps it’s because I used to do resolutions but stopped when I realized that come January 3rd or 4th I was already breaking what I proclaimed I wouldn’t. It wasn’t that I didn’t have willpower, I did. I had determination…grit. The want. The need. I lacked motivation and needed inspiration to keep going.
That’s when I hit upon this novel idea to not make it a New Year resolution. I quit smoking on an icky cold March day four years ago. I just picked a day, marked the calendar, and prepared. Yes, it was rough, those first few days were awful. But I knew it would be. I did the research. I warned everyone (to stay far away) and every day it got a little easier. I learned not to beat myself up for sliding backwards. It happens but you move forward and before you know it you’ve attained the goal. Smoking was a big hurdle but I did it.
This year I’ve made no resolutions. I just want to enjoy life with all its ups and down.
What I have made are intentions. This is the year I plan to release two books, YES TWO. If I’m good and my beta readers don’t red ink me too much maybe, just maybe, GASP a third. Good things are coming. 2014 is a magical year and well, I believe in magic.
Now, I suppose if I had to make one resolution it would be: less web time.
So tell me…Did YOU make a resolution? What was it? C’mon you can tell me, I won’t laugh. Well, I might giggle but it will be more of snerk kind of thing. Unless…well we’ll cross that bridge.
Bring it on 2014…Bring it on!
I’m making the resolution to write more and maybe stop worrying about the future. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I hear you on the writing more… I get lazy (yeah I really do-LOL) so I started a “writing calendar” which forces me to visually see what I do. Instead of every day I write every other and mark one of those days in BIG LETTERS: BLOG.
I intend to get writing here at least once a week. You should’ve seen the cobwebs in here.
Don’t worry about the future so much – it’s going to come. Live in the moment and just enjoy them. Once they come you can’t get them back.
Thank you for commenting. I appreciate you stopping in. 🙂 Happy New Year and may your resolution(s) all happen.
The magic will manifest for you this year – I know it! 🙂
I don’t make resolutions either. I’m like you in that I do things when I feel it’s the right time. And when the time is right this year I’m going to publish my next book, and at least one more. Then we’ll see what else happens!
That’s the intent. REMEMBRANCE (goal is part 1 and 2) and ALL ACCESS. I have to stay focused and make the red pen my friend. 😉
Yes, I see 3 for you this year. Most definitely. I can’t wait I’m so excited. I can FEEL it going to happen. Did you feel this way?
Thanks Juli and Happy New Year to you and yours. May it be truly magical.
Congrats on 4 years without smoking. I know from personal experience it’s a hard habit to break.
And I guess I don’t really do the resolution thing, but I am intending to approach 2014 with a renewed commitment to writing. I got a bit sidetracked by school and stuff as last year came to a close.
You were being studious. I think 2014 is going to be a great year filled with numerous “adventures” for all.
Speaking of…when do we leave?
Thanks Mike for stopping by. Happy New Year.
Well, I should probably finish school first, so maybe sometime after that 😉
Can you tell I’m excited about the robotic exoskeleton suits with zeppelin attachment. Woot Woot
