I guess it is important to look back and see where the year went. My 2014 was full of surprises. I changed gyms, later changed my job, forged more friendships, lost a few along the way (as it happens), had more stories published in anthologies, got a few more books ready for publication, decided to venture into self-publishing and started a new series of chapter books.
It’s funny looking back. It was quite a year. One I think has changed me in terms of my writing and my career. I made some pretty heavy decisions and am keen to see how they play out.
I also had some great times with my family. We went on holidays, fed giraffes, saw movies, wrote stories, visited the zoo (a lot) and achieved a lot together.
Did I achieve all my goals for 2014? I would sort of say no, but I laid the foundations to achieve these goals in 2015. So I am giving 2014 a thumbs up. It wasn’t the easiest of years, but onwards and upwards.
There are lots of things I want to achieve in 2015. Mostly I want to enjoy being a part of my kids’ lives. I love being a part of their daily adventures. We are going to have lots of fun in 2015. More zoo days, stories, sport events and a holiday or two.
So New Year’s resolutions??? Well I only have one. Simply to enjoy every day! That’s it, if I achieve that then I am moving in the right direction. How am I going to achieve that? I’m just not going to let things get to me. If we can’t fit it in I will say no, if it’s not going to be fun then it’s a no. I am not going to get stressed out by people, work or anything else. From now on I hold the cards and I have decided to use them to benefit my family! Selfish?? Maybe, but that’s the way it’s going to be!
I have lots of goals, but that is my resolution. What’s yours?
Have a Happy and Safe New Year Everyone – see you all in 2015 for some more fun!
