Maybe… Anyone else still feel like they are stuck in 2014? Anyone else still clearing off their desk and taking care of tasks that should have been done in 2014? Anyone else not even had a chance to consider New Year’s resolutions.
I set myself goals to clear off the old year – and I made those goals. Yes, in a panic, and likely more of a mess than I’d have liked but I made them. Then the new year started and the couple of days to rest and recuperate never happened. And I haven’t slowed down since. Starting the new year at top speed is NOT how I want to start the year, but there were a few mitigating circumstances. As long as I slow down when these issues are done with.
Except that is not likely with the release of Eyes to the Soul (Psychic Visions #7) on the 20th of January
and the release of
Scars (book 2 of Broken but… Mending) in February.
Thankfully, March has no new releases booked but I have back to back releases in April then May. Not to mention my daughter is graduating and my son is getting married, my house is for sale and I’ll need to buy a place and move.
Do you know what my biggest problem is? Me! And that’s the real new year’s resolution I need to focus on – me – learning, accepting and following through on when I’m tired. When I need a break from writing. When I need to get back writing. When my muse needs to be locked up. When I need to turn my back on the stack of To Do lists. When I need to forgive myself for not managing to complete all I’d set out to do. When I need a kick in the butt – either to sit in the darn chair and work or to get out of the house or a walk.
I’m more determined than ever to honor the writer within, honor my process – whatever that may mean at the moment, and to allow my muse to take me where she wants to go. Of course while honoring all my current and future commitments. lol.
So what about you? Do you take care of yourself? Should you take better care?
