It's a new year. Full of dreams, free of mistakes, brimming with potential. Don't be afraid to do something with it.
The goals and dreams you have are going to take work. Devote time to your writing. Set aside time to read offline. Research and plan ahead. Get off your arse and go to the gym. Put down that cookie!
Not all of your dreams will be realized. And some dreams you don't even recognize as such yet - they'll be revealed along the way. Be open to them. Be willing to chase them.
Be confident. Love. Be loved.
WRITE - you have three blog projects you are actively working to cultivate. Be aggressive with them. Make them happen.
READ - in order to write, it's helpful to read. It's also calming. And inspiring. And enlightening. 25 books this year, any kind you like. You can handle that easily.
JOB - you know better. This isn't it. Fix it or move along.
HEALTH - you have 1/3 of yourself to lose. I'm speaking of the extra pounds that have piled on. The gym (and your goal of running a 5k) are great for relieving stress as well as decreasing your booty.
JOE - continue to support the husband. Remember to speak up for what you want and need; it's not that he doesn't care or support you but mind-reading isn't among his many talents. Be a good wife and allow him to be a good husband. Stop pushing him away.
SELF - you've made fantastic progress with your anxiety and reactions to situations. Continue to do so. Love yourself - you're more than you give yourself credit for. Don't let fear hold you back from doing the things you want to do or being the things you want to be.
It's going to be a big year, an even bigger decade. You can handle it. You can be happy in it. Now, go kick its ass.
P.S. This is from yesterday's cue at 7 Days 7 Answers. Write a letter giving yourself instructions for the new year. Would love for you to write yourself a letter. But mostly, I just feel good about writing mine.
