It's Time for a Resolution
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
And I have a question.
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!
