Whenever a new year rolls around, people set out to make changes in their lives. They make resolutions for big and small differences that will change their lives in grand ways. Most people, also fail in those resolutions within the first few days or the first few months.
I, too, have set out into this new year with resolutions of changes I would like to make to my life, except I started mine the day after Christmas.
This year I plan to eat healthier and work out. Health is very important and many of us take it for granted until it's too late and there are years of damage to repair. I don't want to get to that so I figured if I try to adapt to a healthy lifestyle now, I will not have to pay for it later.
I also plan to concentrate more on my writing. When you have over one hundred plot ideas fighting for your attention every day, it's easy to get distracted. However, how will those stories get written if I don't pick one at a time and write it? So, my goal this year is to just concentrate on one piece at a time and only work on that until I'm done and ready to submit.
So far, I've been pretty good about keeping those resolutions and making those changes in my life. Ever since December 26th, I've been eating healthier, working out, and editing ms's that are done but not yet ready to be submitted just because I really dislike the self editing/rewriting process. But I also took a break yesterday and didn't do any of the things I planned to do. I have every intention of going back to my new lifestyle today.
How about you? Any resolutions or lifestyle changes for you this year?
