Happy New Year to all my friends!
This is a good week for setting goals for the New Year, don't you think? In fact, the entire month of January is the time to work on goals we want to accomplish this year, or to tie up things we intended to finish last year. Instead of resolutions which I usually never keep I decided I would set new goals. Yes, I know it is almost the same thing, but I think it has to do with the idea around it. If I don't keep resolutions but have better luck with goals, well there you go.
January is a fine time for fresh starts after the chaotic end of the year December always brings me. Even though we are dealing with the lowest cold and record snows in my area, January still feels like fresh starts and new beginnings.
Of course as a writer, one of my main goals is to work harder and smarter on all aspects of my writing career. There are bunches of details that I could include here but I'll just leave it at that. As we go along during the year, I'll share things that work for me and things that don't.
There are other goals unrelated to writing too, like keeping my healthy exercise and eating habits in check. A continuous goal that sometimes doesn't get the attention I need to give it. (I want to eat less chocolate and chips and more veggies, and for sure do more aerobics!)
Another goal I have is to share the good things in my life with those I love. Oh yes, and I don't want to forget to work on creating more happiness and less stress in my life too.
How about you? Do you have your goals/resolutions in place? What is different about them this year than in past years?
