So, I’m not big on New Year’s Resolutions, but this above picture about sums it up for me. The shirt says Don’t Quit Your Daydream, and the pic was taken at my first-ever book launch party this past summer. I was with my mom, and I’m lucky to have the support of both my parents and husband, who have been to almost all of my events since. (I can’t fault the men for not coming to the launch since it was a mom’s night out!)
The resolution: Keep working toward that daydream while at the same time remaining grounded in reality. I know 2016 wasn’t a great year for many, but I have to say, for me, it was the beginning of a lot of great things and I hope to keep it up in 2017. It’s become a bit of a tradition (especially since having a child!) to do some writing on New Year’s Eve. After I click upload on this entry, I’ll open up the file for my current work in progress. Hopefully 2017 will see more events as I continue my book tour for Welcome to Motherhood (some exciting ones already in the works), and possibly the publication of one of the two picture books I’m currently working on. Also lots more family time.
I wish the same for anyone reading this…we should all get to live our daydreams!
