New Year, Same Goal


2018. It’s hard to believe we’re already in the year 2018. It feels like yesterday I was in high school and we were getting used to writing 2000 instead of 1999.

A new year is always full of potential and promise. Goals, resolutions, hopes and dreams. Whether you want to lose that pesky five pounds or finally finish your memoir, the new year always gives you renewed hope that it can be done.

The older I’ve gotten, the more reflective my resolutions have become. Five years ago, my goal was to become a mother and to get my first novel published. Four years ago, both dreams came true.

This year, like the last few since my children were born, my goal is the same: to enjoy every minute. While it feels like yesterday that I held my son in my arms for the first time and then less than a year later, his baby sister, it’s been almost four. That little baby is now an active, curious, full-fledged little boy and I don’t want to miss a second of it.

Whatever your goals, resolutions, hopes and dreams may be, I hope you reach them all in 2018.
