As the last days of 2019 ride off into the sunset, I find myself eagerly looking forward to 2020. I don’t know why humans have chosen this particular day to start fresh- but I am fully on board.
I know its entirely cliché but my goal is to lose 20lbs. I lost 20 last year and I feel so much better physically and mentally. I can acknowledge I will never be down to the ‘sick weight’ I achieved through ditching meds and developing a raging case of bulimia. But now I am healthier mentally and have adopted the ‘my body is a temple’ mentality: if you put crap in, you get crap out. Also I am loving my daily walks. Treadmill or road, dog or alone, I feel refreshed afterward. It is better than any cup of coffee.
My second goal is to finish my second novel: Lydia. She is so feisty and I love writing her. I am only 17,000 words in, so this is a big goal. I also want to spend a bit of time trying to publish ‘A Shadow of Magic’. My test readers have been positive, and I want to see if she can fly on her own.
This year we have a lot of house fixing/modifying plans and I definitely want to take the opportunity to learn some hard skills. For some reason I really want to learn to use hubby’s circular saw- I love the sound it makes. Since shed building is on our list I am anticipating ample opportunity.
So Happy New Year everyone! May 2020 be full of peace and prosperity.
