2012 is a big year in a lot of ways. The year my first-born son graduates from high school and starts college a few months later. (Gulp). The year my husband gets recognized for twenty years with NIKE, and we take a fun family vacation to celebrate. The year I have no books coming out.
Wait. Does that make it a big year? Well, in a way, it does. I should have lots of time to write. Along with lots of time to play.
On my run yesterday, I kept thinking about what I want for myself this year and the word that kept coming to mind was LIVE.
Which is weird, I know, since we are living every day. But I think it's more like, Live BIG. Go. Do things. Take Risks. Be all that I can be (except I won't be joining the army).
Last year was a hard year. I sort of just did what I needed to do to get through each day most of the time. Sometimes, when life throws us curve balls, that's all we can do. This year, I want more than that. For both my writing and my life. So there it is. This is what I want to do in 2012.
