Happy New Year
Ah, another year coming to a close.
Time for resolutions and for some of you, black eyed peas.
Like most of you, I find it fairly easy to make New Year’s resolutions, but it’s much harder to stay on point and keep them throughout the year.
For the past few years, my resolutions have been few. I try to remember that each day is a new one and that we need to work toward our goals each day, not just at the turn of the yearly calendar.
I always resolve to read more and set a book goal. I haven’t reached it yet, but maybe one day I will.
We typically update our vision board around this time of the year and most likely, I will do it this weekend while we have another long weekend.
I make up a new business plan and try to remember to re-visit it quarterly. This year, I will add a social media plan to my plan and maybe make it more visual as well, so I can see it from my desk each day.
And I always resolve to become more organized. My filing cabinets in The Belle Writer’s Studio are overflowing and I need to organize my digital files in a more logical way.
But the best advice with regards to resolutions was posted on Facebook yesterday from one writing colleague and friend to another: “Maybe the goal is to find something in 2012 just for yourself–a place, a hobby, whatever–that makes you happy and gives you peace.”
That’s the best advice and one we realized when we moved to Our Little House. I wish for all of our Living Large community the same.
What are your goals/resolutions for 2012?
