New Year’s Resolutions
I haven’t heard many folk talk about these so far. I actually prefer to call them “Goals” for the new year. Yes, I have written them down, though this year I am going to have them visible to me easily. I think on the inside of a kitchen cupboard. Because, I don’t like to “publicise” them, but like to be reminded of them at times. I like the idea of “My Best Year Yet” – which is the title of a book. As yet, I haven’t read it.
I have most of my worldly goods moved into my new apartment, which is still a bit of a mess, as I have not unpacked all boxes. It will take me a few more days to get them unpacked. I have been there for a couple of hours for the last four days. It is very hot, and I have a sore shoulder so I am trying not to “overdo” it.
My Key Goal is about my Writing
The last three years have been busy for me – the latter two house sitting. While in many ways I am grateful for the experiences I had, I am looking forward to settling down and focussing on my writing. I’m not getting any younger so the thought of not getting at least a couple of my books published before I depart this world is rather horrifying.
The new abode is much smaller than I have ever lived in, and I will have no garden to maintain and no lawns to mow. Being on the second floor I have fewer distractions too. My lease is for one year, so I am keen to put head down and work on my targets.
This article here has interesting information about New Year’s Resolutions.
It is also my plan to review my progress with these goals on the first day of every month – so I may find I have to “kick-start” myself along the way.
I’m looking forward to a Happy and Prosperous 2019! I hope it will be my best year yet!
