2012 is less then a day away. And I have not accomplished my goals for 2011.
I am making a pledge to refocus for 2012. I will finish my manuscripts. I will create new picture books start to polished editing, and I will continue to follow my dream. I will also be a better mentor to my Usborne Books team, who did amazingly well with a floundering supervisor. (Get it Flood, water, flounder....)
The FLOOD of 2011 really did take more out of me then I care to admit. Moving 3 times, going through items lost forever to mold or damage, watching my parents drain their indoor swimming pool and having to move back in, and having to realize I can't control everything in my life did take a toll on me.
Maybe I needed the mental break. 2011 was the first year I did not hit personal goals for myself. It was the first time I said "no" to exciting projects and volunteer opportunities, it was the first time I didn't give 120%, and it was the first time I felt like I couldn't get back in the saddle.
2012 is a New Year. I am going to face it with a total excitement of what is to come and what I can accomplish.
Happy New Year to all! Instead of making resolutions, make goals for yourself! You can do it!
