Wendi’s Word: Fresh start

Ah, here we are again. The beginning of the year – a time to start fresh and make goals for the new year.
Maybe I should begin with goals I probably will never make or if I made them they would easier be broken like going to a bookstore. Or buying a book once all the other books have been read.
Or not drinking coffee – I will go down to one cup a day, but please don’t take away my coffee completely away.
Or I will not binge watch an entire show on Netflix in one day, because I don’t do it. Gosh, a part of me starts thinking about all the other things I could do if I had an entire day.
Oh, here’s another good one, not buying anymore washi tape (if you haven’t heard of it think decorated tape.) Now there‚Äôs a chuckle.
Now we can move on to more realistic goals for myself, when the toddler is asleep. Since I mentioned books, realistically reading one book a month. Not bad. I could easier finish a book in a few days if it I really can’t put it down.
Now, when I thought about goals I wanted to read one fiction and one non-fiction book per month. Technically I do have one of each in my everyday tote – Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco and The Princess Diarist by Carrie Fisher (which was a great hidden find at a used book store during National Novel Writing Month.) There is hope.
Leading into writing goals. Gosh, wouldn’t it be nice to finish what I started during National Novel Writing Month in 2010. For that matter, any of the three stories. Even if not working on any of those, just writing 15-20 minutes a few times a week. Start small, finish big.
Scrapbooking goals…hmmm… on one scrapbooking group on Facebook I made a goal of 50 pages for the year, which is feasible. More realistic then let’s say 100 or 150. Then, in another Facebook group I added five more goals to it – mostly finishing projects and signing up for more crops. Maybe also try to draw and paint more – it has been awhile.
Health goals I am sticking with the basics try to stress less and drink more water, walk more. Also, to get my energy level up as it will be spring before we know it and Jonathan will be quickly running in the backyard and speeding on
