Let me start off by saying that I spent most of 2014 trying to bring some stability back into my life. I settled into my job, got back into working out, and started really trying to manage some mental health issues. I found my way back into writing and being sociable again. There were rough patches, of course, but for the first time in months I’m feeling good. Happy. Hopeful.
Which is why I’m incredibly optimistic about 2015. I always geek out over making New Years resolutions, but I’m more excited about my goals this year than I have been in quite a while. Not because they’re bigger or more awesome than they have been in the past, but because I finally feel like some of them might be in reach.
So without further ado, here’s my list:
1. Finish revising Facing the Music and start querying.
2. Find a new job.
3. Draft one other manuscript this year.
4. Read 100 books this year.
5. Continue to keep a regular workout schedule.
6. Spend less time obsessing about my insecurities or comparing myself to other people.
7. Make more of an effort to be kind, especially in situations where kindness wouldn’t be my gut reaction.
If 2014 was the year I found my balance, 2015 is going to be the year I find myself. Let’s do this!
What are your resolutions for 2015? What would you like to accomplish this year?
