I have been thinking a lot the last few weeks about the events in my life in 2017.
I have had some hard moments. My summer was filled with a lot of tears and sadness and by the fall I was mentally and emotionally exhausted.
The last couple of months I have been ‘forced’ to think more on the positive side. My husband is away for a total of six months for work. The only way I have been getting through it is thinking of the good things to come from it, and in turn it is changing my way of thinking.
When you are in a rut, sick, or in mourning, it is easy to get stuck in a negative vibe. At least that is the case for me. When it rains, it usually pours.
I don’t really plan to make resolutions for 2018, but I want to carry on the good things I have taken from this year.
Taking part in Nanowrimo this year kicked started something for me. I had been in a writing slum for awhile. But now I am excited to get back to older, unfinished works, as well as having a bunch of new ideas for future stories. Yay! 🙂
Also, I want 2018 to be a much more positive year. I am going to savor the little things, and even on the bad days come up with something good. I might start a gratitude jar or write something in a journal each day.
2017 has kicked a lot of peoples butts this year, including mine. 2018 is going to be the year that I kick back.
I hope you all have a fantastic New Year’s and that 2018 brings you everything you want. ❤
