Baby it's cold outside, and I'd like nothing better than to sit in front of my fireplace with a hot beverage and a good book. I just finished James Dashner's MAZE RUNNER series and loved it! But that was during my Christmas break, and Christmas is over now...so back to work.
I'm just getting started with the third book in the FINDING MY ESCAPE trilogy, and I'd love to have the reader's input. What do you think about Hannah and Matt's journey so far? What about Hannah's connection to the world of Valeria? What is the one thing you definitely want to see happen in FINDING MY WAY HOME?
So here we are with a new year upon us, and I feel compelled, once again NOT to make resolutions. I don't make resolutions because in all my (non of your business how many) years, I have never, not once, kept one.
I much prefer the idea of setting goals. I hear you asking, "Isn't a goal the same thing as a resolution?" In a word, "No."
A resolution is like a cloud hanging over your head going "break me, break me". You try for a few weeks (or I do, anyway), but the minute you "break it" you feel like you've failed.
Goals are completely different. A goal is something you strive for, working at it a little every day. It can be just beyond your reach or as high as the clouds. And every day that you do a little something toward your goal, you're inspired to do a little something the day after that.
Some of my goals are:
Notice I didn't say "goals for this year". My goals, at the moment, are very fluid - a work in process. I start with a dream and I scribble it down and imagine myself reaching it. Then I break it down in very doable tasks and decide how long it will reasonably take me to complete them.
So what if I don't reach my goal in the time I allot for myself? It really isn't a big deal. As long as I know I'm working toward my prize, I know one day I'll reach them.
That's me. Wife, mom, former teen, and writer.
