It’s hard to believe we’re starting a new year. I am still scratching my head as to what happened to the year that was 2019. It had gone so fast and when I look back, a lot of my energy went into my position as Year Coordinator at the school I work. I’ve never been in this role before and the learning curve was steep!
Some days were challenging, like most teaching is, and many rewarding days. I will be in the role again for this coming year. It’s going to be an interesting year.
Looking back at 2019, I didn’t get a lot of writing done, just over 14,000 words. Way below my target of 40,000 and completing book 3 in the Servant of the Gods series. I had a number of goals for 2019 and unfortunately didn’t finish one. My day job was all consuming and I had nothing left to give at the end of the day.
For 2020, I have decided it is time for a change. More focus will be on my writing, the writing community, socialising with family and friends, exercising and enjoying life. I can’t say 2019 was at all memorable, fun or healthy for my wellbeing. We did sell our home in a period of time when the market was low, so that is a plus, though we are still renting, and that’s okay. The suburb we’re in is nice and we’re not too far from Fremantle or the CBD.
I am going to keep my goals short and achievable. It’s time I get smarter with my time and enjoy life. How was your 2019? Did you achieve your goals or did other factors Gatecrash their way and take over?
Thank you for your continued support and as always, I look forward to your comments and will respond.
