That is the question.
Every year I struggle around this time trying to decide if I should create resolutions to commit to (among other things) writing more, blogging more, spending more time with _____, doing more ______ …you get the idea.
Once upon a time I used to create New Years Resolutions every single year. I even scrapbooked them – and they were page 1 in each years scrapbooks. I stopped doing that several years ago because I had personal resolutions I didn’t feel like sharing with the world. The world, of course, consisting of primarily my family since who else is browsing my bookshelves of scrapbooks. Right?
My goals typically revolve around family, my writing and photography – the primary things in my life. Last year I did not actually set resolutions or even a goal of any kind, except that I hoped I would finish writing one novel from start to finish. Problem is, I didn’t really specify what that means. I did finish a novel from start to finish in the sense that it might actually make sense if it was published, but it really needs major editing. So did I succeed or fail? Does it matter?
Do you set New Years goals and/or resolutions? This year I would like to make all of my goals center around my writing (which may or may not also include blogging) because I already feel I am comfortable in my role as a mother and wife, and while everyone could use a little nudge in the right direction to be better, I feel okay with all of that. So what kind of goals do you set for yourself? Help me create a great resolution list either by leaving a comment below, sending me an @ message on twitter or by sending me an email.
I have a few in mind that I’d like to figure out how to make work, I’m all about manageable and attainable goals, or else I’ll be honest – they aren’t happening. Remember, I’ve got 5 kids and don’t have THAT much time. LOL
Happy New Year Friends! Please help me figure this all out. 😀
