I know...I'm about 17 days late for the whole New Year's thing. I couldn't let it go without saying something so here we go:
Thoughts on 2004:
IT's finally over...wooohoooo! Seriously, it was a looong year and an expensive one what with the medical bills and vet bills and all. I struggled with many things physically, emotionally and spiritually. I ended the year feeling wrung out and tired...that kind of tired that hits you deep inside.
But as I reflect on 2004, there was also some wonderful memories. The gathering of my family, my sister's family, my brother's family and my parents at Silverwood Theme Park. That was a blast! I think we are planning another exciting get together for this summer, too. I also took second place in a writing contest for a flash fiction piece. It was my first attempt at flash fiction and I loved writing it.
I received my first check for writing! I want more lol. I need to make a copy of it and frame it for inspiration. I'd frame the actual check, but I could use that cash. I grew spiritually, mentally and emotionally...alas..not physically. Drat.
Hopes for 2005:
Closer relationships with family and friends, strong writing network, a couple novels completed, make some more money from my writing, enter contests, develop some muscles so I can better wrestle against my hubby
, conquer fear and inhibitions, work towards my dreams, grow my hair out long, and the list really goes on. I have a lot I want to do this year.
What are your thoughts on 2004 and your hopes for 2005?
