On the eve of a new year

Here we are, another year come and gone. Well, not quite, but close enough. In general, I’m not one to dwell on the past. What is done is done, and it can’t be changed. The good with the bad. What I can do though is make sure that the coming year moves in the direction I want it to.

What does that mean for me? Devoting the time I should to writing. Learning more on the guitar. Teaching my children the joy of being creative. My daughter is a voracious reader, and I love it. She loves to write and draw her own books. My son loves music in many forms. Even though she can read, she still asks me to read to her too, which is great.

You know, seize the day. No time wasted on regrets or should have beens or could have dones. Don’t let myself get bogged down in the day to day slog that I miss the great things happening.

I’ve never liked resolutions much either. Everyone sticks with them for a month or two. Rarely does it go past that. Instead I plan to set goals that I can meet daily. Both writing and guitar.

So to you my friends, I hope you have a great 2011. I plan to.
