An entire month of 2018 has passed. AN ENTIRE MONTH! So, before any more time slips passed me incognito, I'm going to tag it with bright colors and sounding bells.
I WILL rewrite my book.
I WILL finish two other books.
I WILL publish one book digitally.
I WILL give myself a break every month.
I Will spend more time with my loved ones.
I will organize my kitchen completely and to the nine.
I will stop there as I could make my life too difficult if I resolve anything else! But I WILL leave it open for reassessment later.
Two months have passed. I have done well I think:
I have given myself a break each month.
I have spent more time with my loved ones.
I have organized my kitchen, though 'to the nine' is debatable.
I have almost finished rewriting my book.
I think I'm done with two more books.
Reassessment: I will take opportunities when they present themselves.
I will branch out in my endeavors.
I will try to send a manuscript to at least 4 publishers.
Months three and four have whizzed right by!
I have been heavy in the spending time with loved ones department. No complaints there.
Giving myself a break still requires plenty of thought, but I have been working at it regularly and therefore feel much less frazzled and neglected.
I have looked more into writing and publishing as I try to decide which manuscripts to concentrate on and which publishers to send them to.
My kitchen is becoming more familiar and I keep fine tuning it to support my needs. I am a bit lost in its size after living 14 years with one that never required more than two steps from counter to sink to fridge to cook-stove. That is not a complaint, just something I still have to figure out.
So, one-third of the way into 2018, I feel pretty solid. That's a good feeling!
