2019: A New Chapter

Goodbye 2018 and hello 2019!

I remember sitting in this exact spot a year ago and writing about the year ahead. I said this and that would happen in 2018, and you know what? I was right. For the most part, the year went how I predicted it would go. The only thing I was wrong about were the characters in my story. Life threw some curve balls, but lessons were learned. I conquered many fears. I experienced all the firsts I envisioned a year ago. I just experienced them with new characters.

“People come, people go – they’ll drift in and out of your life, almost like characters in a favorite book. When you finally close the cover, the characters have told their story and you start up again with another book, complete with new characters and adventures. Then you find yourself focusing on the new ones, not the ones from the past.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Rescue

Over all, 2018 was a good year for me.

How did you bring in the new year?

I brought in the new year at a karaoke bar with some of my favorite people. I even had my first New Year’s kiss. It was a night full of games, music, drunken laughs, and one twisted ankle after I tried to escape from my friend’s house at 4 AM. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the new year or with a better group of people.

I’m in a much better place than I was a couple months ago. A lot has changed and a lot has happened in such a short amount of time. My New Year’s resolutions? I don’t have any except to be a better person than I was the day before. I’m going to continue writing and working toward my goals and my personal growth. I have no predictions for the new year. 2019 is a mystery to me; I’m entering the year blindfolded. I can’t wait to see what’s in store, though. I have a feeling 2019 will be good to me.

I hope all of you had a good New Year’s and I wish you all a good year ahead. May your year be filled with more blessings than worries and more smiles than frowns!

    My 2018 had some ups and downs, I had a change in my personal life, I published two books and republished one and updated another. I’ve had a crazy busy year. However, 2019 is better, because it’s a new year and leads to new beginnings. I am working on two different projects which I hope to have out in the spring. I am also working toward marketing myself more.
    I don’t have any New Year’s resolutions, I have goals. I say this, because if I make resolutions, they will die after a month or so. I’ll b disappointed in myself, because I’ll feel like I have failed. However, if I make goals, it won’t be so hard on me if I don’t get them all accomplished. I’ll just keep striving to get them done and extend the goals I missed for next year.
    Happy new year to you also.
