Old year, new year
2014 is upon us but I didn't want to start this shiny, new year without reflecting on the one that's just passed.
2013 was the year when I proved to myself that 'I can' if I believe in myself. I can:
- finish that murder mystery play that's had me dumbfounded for over a year - Fresh Blood
- guest write for a professional work from home blog - Guesting on Work From Home Wisdom
- attract new customers to Murdering The Text
- and finish the third draft of my novel.
On a personal note, 'I can' lose weight and keep it off. Between June and December, I lost 2 stones in weight. I have more to lose yet but I'm confident that I can be down to my target weight by the summer.
My word for 2014 is 'refresh'. I have so many good things in my life already but I feel that I need to look at many of them with new eyes. I have no new year resolutions as such, just an incredible amount of optimism and excitement for the next twelve months. I have two murder mystery plays to write, a year's worth of blog posts and a novel to revamp for the 9-12 year age range. Plus I'm hoping to have to buy new clothes as I lose more weight.
So there you have it - my old year and my new year. What about you?
