Do you make new year’s resolutions? I do… I can’t help it.
For 2011, my resolution is to live a fuller life and be a better person to the people who love me. As much as I love writing, it’s had a starring role in my life for the past few years and I need to put the people I love back to front and center. Which doesn’t mean I won’t be writing (hell yeah, I’ll be writing! I have a whole new book to revise!), but it does mean that I’ll be trying to enrich the parts of my life that don’t involve writing, as well.
Pretty simple resolution, yes? But oh so complicated.
And to demonstrate just how committed I am to doing this, I’m off to Toronto for the holidays (for the first time in three years). Words can’t express how much I’ve missed spending Christmas with my family and my bestest friends, and I can’t imagine I’ll ever allow another Christmas to go by without them just because plane tickets are expensive and life is crazy busy. We can always make more money… but after losing three people I loved in the last eighteen months, I’ve learned that what we can’t get back is TIME.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday and I’ll see you back here in the new year! I’ll only be blogging part-time in 2011, but I promise I’ll do my best to make it count.
In the meantime, what’s YOUR New Year’s Resolution?
Happy New Year, everyone!
