Merry Christmas Eve Eve!
And for those not celebrating Christmas, Happy Sunday!
Because, yes, it’s Sunday and I usually post on Tuesday. I decided to post today, because I know a whole lot of you are going to be super busy tomorrow and Tuesday, opening presents, savoring the delight on childrens faces, and eating way too many holiday desserts (shh, I won’t tell!)
And this is always a great time to look back on our accomplishments this year. Sure you probably didn’t meet every single goal you set 12 months ago, but who cares? I know I didn’t read the 52 books I arrogantly vowed to read, I didn’t finish that novel I’ve been writing for years.
But the goal isn’t always what is important. Sometimes, the anticipation, the desire, the planning is what you really need. Failing to complete all your goals does not mean failure.
Did you learn anything this year? Did you figure out a way to do something better or differently?
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work” —Thomas Edison
Think about the wonderful things you did accomplish this year.
My list of accomplishments include:
- Realizing that I have so much more to say than I ever dreamed.
- Deciding to start a real blog.
- Actually creating said blog.
- Developing my philosophical/religious self
- Finding a novel plot that just might keep my interest long enough to finish writing it
- Realizing my mulitpotentiality thanks the fabulous Emilie Wapnick.
- Meeting some amazing other writers on Google+ (Yes, this means you Bliss Morgan, Heather Dudley, Karen Woodward, Laura Klein, Lewis Miranda, and oh so many others!)
- Meeting some wonderful A-Listers like Bobbi Emel, Leah McClellan, CJ and Tammy, and so many more!
I know you have an amazing list as well!
And what about 2013?
I know I have a long list there as well, the entirety of which I won’t bore you with, but here are a few you might be interested in:
- Writing an eBook for Un-Copied Life
- Finishing my novel
- Creating an email course for Un-Copied Life
- Creating several more freebies for my awesome followers
Things will definitely be getting exciting around here!
Which brings me nicely to my next point.
I know some of you probably have noticed already, but in case you haven’t (or you’re reading this in your email), there are now two lovely new items displayed in the sidebar.
First, I have release the very first freebie for blog subscribers!
It’s called Mindful You: Beginners Guide and Workbook. For the most part, it’s a compilation of the mindfulness series I did a while back, but it’s been put together in pdf format with workbook questions that you can conveniently download onto your computer. (For those already subscribed, I will be sending you a separate email with the link to the download, so make sure to keep an eye out for it!).
As I said, this is absolutely free, but it’s only available for subscribers. To subscribe just fill out the subscribe form in the orange bar at the top of the page or the form on the right. (email readers click here)
And second, you’ll notice a banner on the right for an absolutely wonderful writing course called The Fast Track To Polished Prose by Leah McClellan. I’m a member of this course, and I can tell you, it’s absolutely worth the price. If you are a fellow writer, blogger, or need to brush up on your writing skills for work or school, then you should really check out this course. You can either click on the image below or head over to the new Products & Services page if you’d like to read my disclaimer on affiliate relationships.
Now, I’m off to bake a Pecan Pie and a yummy hash brown casserole for my family’s Christmas dinner tomorrow night. I hope all of you are enjoying your holidays, which ever ones they may be!
Let me know in the comments, your top moments of 2012. And what things do you most want to accomplish in 2013?
