Ready for the New Year!

I wish I could explain my absence from the blog saying that I was in just such a writing frenzy that I couldn’t tear myself away from my novel, or my articles, or my work for various clients in order to blog.  Unfortunately I can not say any of that.  I had intended on getting a lot of work done last week but intentions do not necessarily mean action and I hate to say that I did not put action into those intentions.

I had time away from having to do homework for school and my daughter was even gone for a few days with her father but the time just disappeared into thin air.  I did some reading and I did some planning in my head but as for them making them to the actual physical form of being on paper (or on the computer screen), it just didn’t happen.  I’m not going to make excuses because there aren’t any.

If I waste time dwelling in what I didn’t do that was supposed to get done by now then nothing still gets done.  I promised that in this coming year that I was going to direct my focus on the things that I can control in my life and not continue harping on what I couldn’t.  I can’t go back in time and change things to be the way that I want them to be so I will live in the present and just do better.

I’ve already made my lists of the accomplishments that I WILL get done in 2013 and I am already in the mindset to accept that things must change and that all of my efforts will be directed towards making the changes that need to be made in order to get back on track.  Hopefully all of you are geared up and ready for the New Year and have your plans of action ready to be put in motion.  Happy New Year everyone and let’s make this the year it is meant to be!

I have the Write 2 Be Empowered… What is your Write 2 Be?

  1. Good for you Jimmetta! I go through the exact same thing you describe above. We let life get in the way sometimes. You absolutely have a Write 2 Be Empowered! If writing and blogging are your passions then don’t let anything keep you from them. You deserve it! My answer to your question “What is your write 2 be?” is the same as yours when you boil it down. I saw a list of the top 5 regrets of the dying today and number 1 was not being true to who they are. That sums up most of my life. Writing and blogging are two ways that I’m working on changing that. I learn about who I am through writing an blogging. That is the real reason that I have committed to consistently working on improving my writing and blogging and I am making myself accountable to others. I’ve put it out there on my blog that I will blog seven days a week starting in February and that at least one of those days each week I will blog about the story I’m writing. I applaud your declaration that you have a Write 2 Be Empowered. Absolutely! 2013 will be awesome if we’re willing to do what it takes to get us where we want to go.

    1. Congratulations on your dedication to your writing and blogging efforts. I believe that you will be able to accomplish your goals just by the desire that you display in your message. I will check out your blog and follow so that I can travel your journey along with you. I find that blogging has also helped me develop a better sense of who I am. Hopefully I will hear from you again. Happy New Year and take care.
