I want to recharge my batteries in 2015. Last year I spent the majority of my time being tired – mentally and physically. I was not as creative and productive as I would have liked to have been because I was not satisfied with some things in my life. I am learning to take more control over my own happiness. The highlight of 2014 for me was my vacation to Los Angeles to visit a friend back in September.
In 2015 I hope to expand on what I was trying to do in 2014. I submitted a flash fiction piece last December for a local literary contest. I am sure I didn’t win anything – if I had won I think I would have heard something by now. They will announce the finalists in a few weeks. I am fine with not winning. I was happy to just have something to send in and say “I wrote that!” It is baby steps, but I’m getting excited about all my writing possibilities.
I don’t want to be creatively bankrupt again. I don’t want to get so tired and frustrated that I give up on myself. I say this because I did exactly that – give up on myself – several times last year. 2014 was a complicated year in so many ways. I want happiness this year. I want to surround myself with friendly, creative, kind, and optimistic people. I don’t want to deal with any unkind people if I don’t have to anymore. It brings me down.
I don’t need anyone or anything to bring me down this year. I want it all: I want a positive career, supportive friends, and a healthy relationship. In that order!
I pray for the best in 2015 – I plan to post a lot more this year. When I originally started this blog, I said I would post once a week. I don’t think I did that at all last year. I really do want to get back on path this time. I hope to post once a week, but will definitely not go more than two weeks without posting something. Please hold me to it.
Have a great start to the New Year! 🙂
