So 2012 is done and gone and now we’re ready to start a big beautiful New Year! Every year I try to make resolutions—which I pretty much always fail at by February 1st (except for that year that I’d apparently taken silliness pills and tried to give up chocolate. I lasted until Noon on 1/1 of that year).
Last year though, I decided to try something different and focus on a word that I wanted to use to define the year to come. Last year my husband was moving to temporary housing on January 1st and starting a new job on January 2nd. I knew we had to sell our house and move across the state at some point in that year, my daughter was going to be starting at a new school and a new swim team and I’d have to reestablish my routines. Routines that had hardly gotten set since I’d only quit my day job a few months before. So last year’s word was CHANGE. And oh did we have a ton of that in our lives.
Now at the end of 2012 we’re settled and things are good here in Amish country and I’m excited about what’s to come in 2013. So after a lot of long thought I’ve decided that my word for 2013 is FOCUS.
In the year to come I’m going to try focusing on my career. To not just get more books out but to improve my writing as I go. I’m also going to work on focusing on my other interests a bit more and trying to move forward on all my other goals.
So what’s your word or your resolution for year?
