Today is a great time to think back on the good things you have accomplished this year. Congratulate yourself for your successes. Remember the stories you have completed.
We all need to recharge our batteries from time to time. Every January we start thinking about setting new goals for the coming year. Why do you need worthwhile goals? I have always believed that you can never have success or happiness if you don’t strive for it. It doesn’t just happen. Without a worthy goal, you accomplish nothing. Goals lead you to where you want to go, and you should enjoy the journey along the way.
When you think about improving yourself, keep your writing goals in mind. A positive attitude should be at the top of your list. With persistence, you can accomplish the things you set out to do. You can’t control an editor’s decision, but you do have control over the things you do. If your life isn’t already organized that should be next on your list.
Among your new goals should be things that will help you love yourself. You need to be happy, have a positive attitude, and take positive actions. Most writers have to write to be happy. As you begin to recharge your batteries for the coming year be sure to allow yourself plenty of time for this worthy goal.
