Resolve 2 January 2019

2019:  A year for action. I looked back to what I resolved to do when 2018 began:


  1. Listen in the moment without forming my response
  2. Daily thanks
  3. Use my mom’s china
  4. Move every day
  5. Write
  6. Let go of hurt

I’ve excused the jury. On to 2019.

  1. Be thankful for little things
  2. Write the stories bubbling inside me
  3. Stop saying no to myself before I’ve even begun
  4. Write five days a week
  5. Use my mom’s china

I know I’ll keep moving every day because that is what powers my writing, my thinking, my teaching, my ability to be thankful. As I begin, next week, the final portfolio course of my master’s in professional creative writing, I can hardly believe it’s been just three short years since I started down that path. I’ve learned so much and have so much more to learn. I’m going to graduate in March! I could get mired in the student debt I’ll then have to start paying back, but I choose not to.

I will focus, as best I can, on my writing and publishing and staying to true to the stories that live and breathe inside of me. A year for action, welcome 2019!

    Now that is a really good idea! But then…I’ll have to cook. 🙂

    You always amaze me with your drive and ability. I hope you use that china in a dinner that celebrates your next master’s degree!
