I’m not going to make any New Year’s Resolutions for 2014, instead I’m going to make a ‘New Year Bucket List’ of things I’d like to achieve during the year.
Top of my list is ‘Friendships’
I intend to cultivate those that mean most to me, the people who take time to be in my life and whose encouragement and loving support motivate me. But I shall once again cut out those who keep letting me down. There have been several of those lately and my motto is: “Three Strikes and you’re out!” I’m all for giving people second chances but not third and fourth ones.
Other things I’d like to achieve are:
** To keep writing and submitting my novels and short stories
** Finish the third book of my trilogy for Knox Robinson Publishing in the ‘Winds of Change’ series, entitled ‘Blue Skies’
** To promote my published work and myself as an author more
** To take up any challenges offered to me, it’s good to get shaken out of our comfort zones now and again!
** Embrace change. Although it’s a scary thing, change can be positive
** Let go of things I have no control over and change those things that need changing
** Fear can be a positive emotion. I’m going to try to do something that scares me every now and again
** Walk away from any people or situations that cause me grief
** Take each new day as it comes…
** Maintain my sense of self and my inner peace
