The year began with a promise to myself…make this year the beginning of my transformation, change bad habits to good habits, get more disciplined and focused, and write more.
It is not easy to change a lifetime of habits. Many times during the year I was frustrated with myself for the changes not happening fast enough. Then reminded myself, like being overweight…getting that way does not happen overnight and it takes time to it; the same goes for making changes in other areas of our lives.
The good news is that I have gradually made a variety of small changes. I celebrate those accomplishments. The New Year will find me continuing on the path of transforming myself…and writing more.
A few months ago I started this blog site. I figured it would make me more accountable to my writing life, and it does. I hope to learn more about the technicalities of this blog site and make mine better. And I hope blogging will help me to become a better writer.
There have been some ups and downs this year, but mostly ups. I continue to be grateful for my blessings…especially the people in my life. All in all, it was a good 2010.
