I'm just about finished reading my book for the first time, start to finish. I definitely have quite a few edits to make but there are both parts that I feel are extremely amazing, and parts I feel that really need work. The amazing parts really do make me feel good though. I would read a whole section thinking 'I wish I knew what I was doing the day I wrote this part because it's such better quality writing than the next page or two'.
I'm totally a New Year's Resolution type gal so, of course, I have a few ready for this upcoming Jan. 1st. I will just go ahead and make a list for you...
1. Make every effort in my power to get my book published.
2. Make every effort in my power to get a good job.
3. Enjoy exercising again (this past year was my first ever that I stayed active on a regular basis all year, so it has lost a lot of that 'fun' quality since becoming so routine).
4. Do yoga more often (3-4 times a month, at least).
5. Meditate more (5 times a week, at least).
My average amount of time of actually following my annual resolutions is only about 4-5 months, so I was worried about putting the first two resolutions on the list for fear that I'd quit on them just to stay consistent, but I figured number 2 is in crucial need of getting accomplished in month 1, and hopefully number 1 won't need more than 4-5 months (that's probably about when I'd get discouraged enough to quit for a while anyway). Whew, that was a long sentence, but I think it makes sense.
So with the Christmas holiday coming to an end, and the New Year just around the corner, I'm really spending a lot of time daydreaming about what I want my 2013 year to look like. The number 13 has always scared me, so hopefully this year gives me a reason to reevaluate why I let superstitions get the best of me.
No matter what happens in the coming year, I'll always remember 2012 and my final year in my 20s as the one I finally wrote my book :)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
