While I made a few things from the lists happen, but most of them never came to fruition. It makes me a little sad so much time has passed without accomplishing the things I set out to do, year after year. (By the way, you all know I'm the Queen of Procrastination, don't you?)
More than half of 2012 has passed us by and the same pattern seems to be holding true this year as in years past. I promise myself I'll be better, keep on track toward accomplishing my goals, but before I can catch my breath another couple of months has sped by. I'm stuck in a repeating loop of sameness.
Today I want to change that, set some new goals. We still have several months left in 2012 to accomplish something momentous, stupendous (or even just a little bitty thing we keep putting off).
Join me in setting some goals for the last half of 2012. They don't have to be writing related, although they can be. They just need to be something important to you. Let's put our energy out there for everybody to see, focus on the positive things we've done—not the negative of what we haven't finished (yet). Big or small, we all have goals and together we can make them happen, with a little help from our friends.
Here are a few of mine:
1. Get the weight loss back on track (enough said - LOL).
2. Get out in the backyard and make something grow. For anybody who knows me and my black thumbs (or as I call it the "kiss of death") I need to weed the back patio and replant something and make it actually survive more than a week or 2.
3. Spend more time with friends. I sometimes get so wrapped up in the day job, the exercise/workouts (see #1 above) that spending quality time with the people I care about gets pushed aside. I want to change that.
4. Write more and submit at least one more project before the end of the year (and hopefully get something accepted for publication).
Share with me and the fellow Princesses some of the goals you'd like to accomplish by the end of 2012. Put them out there and let's work toward making our goals into reality.
