Living Your Best Life
Hello, and a Happy New Year to you, and thank you for taking the time to visit, it's been a while since I posted - I got a bit bogged down with other things, but I'm here now.
Don't you just love the beginning of a new year? We can start afresh, it's an opportunity to rethink our game and make a new plan or readjust an old one.
I've got three big goals for 2019
BIG GOAL #1 - Define My Writing Life - It's time to establish what I really want to do. Here are three projects I'll definitely be working on this year.
# Non-fiction project - As mentioned in a previous post, I'm teaming up with Wayne Kelly, from over at The Joined Up Writing Podcast, we're collaborating to produce a book together, and we'll be sharing details in the coming months.
#The Novel - I still have a lot to do, and I'll be continuing with it this year.
#Filling my Creative Well - Attending writerly events and other inspiring days out.
BIG GOAL #2 - Health & Fitness - Things have crept up on me over the years, I'm asthmatic, I suffer with horrendous backache from time to time and I'm overweight. I want to take control of things.
#Walking Challenge - Walk1000miles is a national countrywide challenge, which involves walking 1000 miles over the year - I've signed up, and yes, it's scary mad, but after speaking to others who have done the challenge, I'm hopeful I'll become healthier.
BIG GOAL #3 Finding Calm - Time to get off the 'Busy Bandwagon' - I've got to for my sanity, and enjoyment of life.
#The Chimp Paradox - Read and digest this mind management programme.
#Sleep - Go to bed earlier. I'm hoping it's as simple as that!
That's it, three big goals, broken down, the next step is organising them into manageable chunks and doing the work.
What have you planned for the year ahead and how are you going to get there?
