2012, you’re finally here!

Well, we are back from a week away visiting family, and it’s never been so good to be home. Gosh, I appreciate our space more than ever right now, and am looking forward to several months of just being here.

So nice <basks in the glow of being home>.

Anyways, I was lying in bed on New Years Eve, thinking about how I wasn’t staying up until midnight and wondering what this said about me. I finally decided that it meant I’m old enough to know that change doesn’t happen over night. The clock striking midnight doesn’t mean that magical things happen (though, wouldn’t that be nice), and that perhaps this wisdom will help me achieve all the things I want from 2012. Rather than starting the new year with a bang, I’m getting on with things slow and steady.

Or maybe I’m just getting old πŸ˜‰ In any event, I can’t afford to burn through all the zeal I have stockpiled, I need to be the tortoise this year to get where I want to be.

2012 is all about:

of new and old, of the dynamics of my life, of everything that I am interested in and passionate about. It’s well and truly time to take things up a notch, and get down to business.

I’ll be completing Lifeline training,Β starting post-graduate study, finishing the first draft of Sun-Touched, editing TCM to submission standard and still being a kick-ass mother and wife – not to mention a million other little things. I’m feeling so good about the year ahead, and I know that if I pace myself, if I take it one step at a time, I will get to where I want to be.

I hope the year ahead is everything you could hope for, and I’m looking forward to sharing the highs and lows with you. I’ve been reading all the goals posts so far and love what I’m seeing. There is such a good vibe for 2012!

Onwards and upwards!

  1. Hurrah for EXPLORATION! That’s been my writing motto since getting back to it last year. Exploration allows for mistakes and messiness and fun and surprises. All good stuff. Happy exploring in 2012 and beyond. xx

  2. Trying to accomplish too much at once burns a lot of energy, and usually causes a lot of discouragement. Like you said, pacing yourself is probably the best way to go about things.

    Good luck with accomplishing your goals for the new year!

  3. Love your theme for this year, Cassie. ^_^ Sounds like you have a lot coming up this year, but I’m so happy for you. -hugs- I hope your schooling goes well. πŸ™‚ Nothing quite like finishing a course and seeing all that hard work pay off.

    1. So true πŸ™‚ This is going to be an amazing year. I can’t wait to see what comes of it – I have a feeling I’m going to be seeing lots of success from a fair few of the writers I know, such as yourself!
