I am considering this past year and in what ways things went well and other things went to hell. Off the top of my head, I see far more positives than negatives. Although the one negative that is flashing in neon is a biggy: finances. I need to organize my financial records better. I need to have a firm grasp on what is coming and going. That will offer me a great peace of mind. Even if there is nothing in the bank, I am the kind of person who is comforted just by knowing the balance is zero. Now if I have no idea what’s going on in BankWorld...that’s another story! Let me emphasize that I have no desire to ever have zero dollars in my accounts, though!
On the positive side, I have written several poems and a couple of children’s stories. I am especially excited about the children’s stories. In 2013 I will be sending them out to publishers while writing more. There is something absolutely pure and magical about children’s literature. It comes freely and easily. It is a joy to write, not like short stories. Short stories are much more difficult for me. Still, I try. Hopefully in the new year I will make progress in that area.
But back to the positives. I have begun work on my Masters degree in Psychology this year. And...the most exciting of the positives...I have fallen in love! This one is a keeper.
I am so very blessed. I don’t have one complaint about 2012. I pray that I am so lucky in 2013.
