My Goals for 2016 

2016 Goals

  • Publish Playing with Fire
  • Finish writing Playing with Fire II
  • Healthier lifestyle
  • Save more, spend less
  • Pray more
  • Continue to count my blessings
  • Perfect my craft (writing and poetry)

I usually don’t do “New Year’s resolutions”, but I always tell myself I am going to make some goals for myself for the upcoming year.  This year, I want to focus on continuing to become the best person, mother, wife, and friend I can be; as I do every year.

Last year brought about some amazing things for me.  I finished writing my first novel, which is something I am most proud of for myself.  For years I had wanted to write a novel but could never find the right thing, and ever since Oct 2014, #PWF has been my baby and I feel like it is my best work.  My number 1 focus is publishing my first novel, and even if I only sell 1 copy, I can feel amazing knowing I can call myself a published author. I have even started #PWF2, and I feel like I will have a lot more short stories and poems coming this year as well.  Perfecting my writing craft is something I am fully committed to at this point, and I cannot wait to see where it takes me.

Health-wise, I went through a lot last year.  I was depressed about where my weight was going and how I was not pleased with where I was, even with paying for a personal trainer.  With the constant depression, came unhealthy eating and I was putting myself through a vicious cycle.  I told myself that this year I will no longer suffer that way.  This year, I will focus on eating better and working out because it is something I love to do; not because it is something I am required to do.  There is no reason why I can’t eat better, because I actually enjoy eating healthy food more than fast food or fried food anyway.  I also enjoy going to the gym, so there is no reason why I should feel unmotivated because it isn’t a diet or a workout plan, it is apart of my life; just like working, taking care of my household and my daughter.  There is no reason I can’t reach the goals I have for myself and this year I will get my life, lol.  I took a little hiatus due to holidays and being in and out of town, so starting tomorrow (because I worked late today 😦 ) I will be back in the gym and back to my happy place :).

I hope you all have made a list of goals for bettering yourself, or even just continue to make a constant effort to strive to be the person that you are.  I don’t have any intentions of changing too much about myself, because I feel like everyone thinks I’m pretty cool already (Lol).  I just want to continue to be the person people know and love, and continue to strive towards maintaining my own happiness.

Here’s to 2016!
