The new year always brings a fresh wave of introspection for me, and this year is no exception. What are my goals exactly? And how can I accomplish them?
Becoming a published author isn't a goal I can accomplish on my own (rats!), and sometimes it drives me crazy how much of the process is left up to luck. The path isn't linear, and to me, that's frustrating. Of course, not making any money at it is frustrating too (that is after all why I teach).
Are the sacrifices worth it? What do you sacrifice for your dreams?
If I look in the mirror, this is what I see:
A smart 27 year old with an unknown future who's totally in love with her husband; blessed with the bestest friend, goofiest sister and most loving mother in the whole world; and someone who refuses to settle for the ordinary in life.
Is that enough?
Maybe I should add something about being insatiable too? :)
Yesterday I stumbled across this quote and I absolutely love it:
"When your heart is in your dream, no request is too extreme." --Jiminy Cricket
I'm going to really try and take these words to heart and see what happens. Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!
