I really can’t decide what’s more amazing – that it’s already the new year, or that I actually completed Project 365 on December 31st. I didn’t know if I’d make it! I am so proud of myself for sticking with it, and really really love the results. An entire year of my life, my family, our adventures – all scrapped and organized and snug in two fat binders. It was a wonderful project.
And now I need a year to recover. 🙂
So it’s a brand new year. Have you made some resolutions? Chosen a few goals? Picked out your One Little Word? Christen Olivarez wrote this in her Editor’s Letter of Somerset Life Magazine: “This year, why not make a resolve to do more of something? More reading. More laughing. More creating. Simply resolve to do more of what makes you happy.”
I couldn’t agree more. This year I’d just like to do more of what I love: Take care of my family. Take care of myself. Read good books. Sew and scrap and make things. And I’d especially like to write more. Just Write. Write because I love to, because it’s fun, because it makes me happy. For now, I don’t want to worry about publication or agents or e-books or blogging… I just want to write. Novels, short stories, journaling – whatever my fingers and my heart feel like working on. It’s time for me to remember why I fell in love with writing in the first place.
Whatever your plans are, I hope that the year is starting out wonderfully for you! And may you find peace and happiness all year long.
Happy New Year!
