It is the first Group Session of the year. I am so happy Alex didn’t let all that praise in December go to his head and he is still around for us little people.
2012 is behind us. 2013 is here. All full of hope and promise and all the warm and fuzzy optimistic feelings of a new year. It’s an opportunity to start all over or if your lucky, continue on the positive journey your currently on. How optimistic am I? But, I’m getting ahead of myself.
Insecurities: It is time to take my writing to the next level. But, do I even have a clue about how to do that? If 2012 was about getting something on paper, 2013 will be about making it better and making it publishable.
There is a lot of work to be done. And, a lot of unknowns, but one thing I’ve realized since being back in the states is, I believe I have been using only half of my brain’s creative capacity for the last 7 years.
Not knocking the last 7 years. I traveled the world, lived in a foreign country and experienced so much and learned so much about myself. It has given me content for years. But, I also spent way to much mental energy on stuff I couldn’t control. And, frankly, stuff that wasn’t my responsibility. But, it was a learning experience. And, one I wouldn’t changed for the world. Well, at least not the travel and living in a foreign country part, anyway.
But, now it’s all about me and my goals to be a published author. My mind is clear. My thoughts are focused and the goals are set. Looking forward to a positive and productive 2013 for us all.
