Note to Self

Dear Self,

This is a new year, but I’m having a Monday Moment. There’s no better time to concentrate on the future and leave the past where it belongs. So your last two years were filled with a lot of upset, sorrow and monumental life changes that created havoc on your creativity and writing life. This is a clean slate.

Put your big girl panties on and dream big. Just remember that it takes more than dreaming. It takes lots of hard work to make the dreams come true. Finish that plan you’re shying away from and JUST DO IT. Start new habits now.

Remember that quote you posted? “The force is always with you–so force yourself.”–Harrison Ford on Star Wars. There’s truth there. Go with it.

Exercise. Write. Submit. Promote. Read.

    I’m sorry you’ve had a rough couple of years, and I’m happy to hear you’ve put on your big girl panties and are ready to move forward. That takes a lot of courage and strength. I’ve been bumbling about the past several years, but I feel ready to take control and work towards some goals. I’m eager to see where this new year takes me.
