Jesus, I’m so happy this month is finally over. I have been running on fumes since Thanksgiving. My novel had taken the back burner to my job, which feeds my feelings of inadequacy, family obligations and the anniversary of my grandmother’s death. All a potent mixture that drags me down into my own personal tar pit. But now that the holiday season is winding down, and I had a few days to myself, I can breath easy again.
Now, I’m not the type of person who makes new years resolutions. I don’t really see the need in trying to commit to something new just because the year started over. I try to work on myself throughout the year. With that being said, the one goal that I made for myself this year (yes I know I just said I didn’t do these things) is to find more balance in my life. I’m one of those people to always bites off more that they can chew. I love trying new things and my house is often littered with half finished projects that often get pushed to the side when my life becomes crazy. Unfortunately, my job (special education teacher) means that my life will always be crazy. I need to find some semblance of balance with all the loves in my life.
On that note, I wish you all a Happy New Year! Here’s hoping it will be better than the last.
