Bring It On: 2017
I’m secretly pleased with this blog post. It was scheduled in advance and means I’ve already made one small step towards completing my 2017 goal to blog more consistently.
I’m a great believer in goal setting. It keeps me centred and focused and reminds me that even though my life just keeps getting in the way of achieving much, it’s a positive thing that I’m always working in the right direction.
2016 was not a good year. Most of the bad things that happened, while close to me, are not mine to share. Suffice it to say 2016 was worse than the year I had bacterial meningitis and worse than the year I was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive thyroid cancer. I survived both those so good things do happen too.
I’m looking forward to 2017 and hoping for miracles although I’d settle for #2 son being well enough to go back to school after six years of illness.
Goal setting helps me find myself amid all the other things I don’t choose to do. I want to be a better person. I want to make more time for friends and creativity. I want to write every day. I want to finish that WIP and get my new PB manuscript published. In my most selfish moments, I want to go to University.
I read somewhere on-line that a goal is a dream with a deadline. To me, the dream is more important than the deadline. I’m dreaming big.
If you are interested in the nitty gritty of how I set goals using Trello, soon you’ll be able to click here (because that post is scheduled too *smile*).
