IWSG: New Year, New Possibilities


January is that time of year when people around the world set out resolutions and goals for the new year and, if you ask people like my mother, February is the time of year when people forget them, or decide to push them off until next year.
I’ve had a lot of goals in the past for what I want my year to look like. There was the year I set out to write a million words (spoiler, I did it!). And of course I always set a Good Reads Reading Goal. Last year’s goal was simply to be better than 2014 & 2015… to prove to myself that even though I’d been handed an epilepsy diagnosis in October of 2015, I was going to be able to get back the focus I’d lost (thank God for being properly medicated).
I’m not going to get into the specifics of what my goals for this year are, if you want those, you can meander over to my post about that. Today, I want to point out that making goals is an important step. Obviously you can accomplish goals without having ever stated them, but if you’re like me, it’s important to do it.
Goals are living things. You can set them now and realize they’re not right tomorrow (or next week/month etc.). But knowing where you’re going is helpful even in figuring that out.
The one goal I will share with you here is that I  hope to be more involved. I plan to get my butt in gear and actually post every first Wednesday, but I’m going to get better about visiting blogs in days between as well.
I hope to see you around.
Keep writing!
