The New Year! - What motivates you?

Updated: Aug 3

So, what motivates you to start the new year off on the right foot? Is it a new years resolution? Is it leftover projects from the previous year that are screaming your name? Or is it the simple fact that it is a new year, new beginning? There are any number of things that could motivate you in your new endeavors. For me it has never been resolutions. I learned a long time ago to never make them because in the end something would go wrong and I would end up disappointed that I couldn't follow through with whatever I had resolved to do.

Now that doesn't mean that I don't have big plans for the new year because I usually do. I might have plans to deal with my health or my family or to get out more or to work harder or whatever. But one thing has been steady through the years and not once has it succeeded. But I still keep plugging away. My one goal is to buy a planner, use said planner all year, and then repeat the next year.

Oh I buy a planner every year. I start our great and then I run out of time, or gumption, or I don't have it on me when I need it, or I just get bored with it. Well, I haven't bought a planner yet this year but as soon as I feel like going into the store (and walking all the way to the back), I will be buying one yet again.

I do truly feel that this year will be different, though. I have a lot more on my plate this year than the usual kids doctor appointments and occasional school function. I myself will have more doctor appointments this year until I get this whole severe iron deficiency figured out. My kids will still have theirs and some extras will be added for one of the kids... I'll explain in a future blog. I also have weekly blogs and writing prompts to keep track of. Plus with both iron deficiency and fibromyalgia I think it would be wise to keep track of my energy levels and stresses/fibro flareups. And then there is the writing and publishing I hope to do this year. In past years I have sucked at

keeping up with planning in a planner for my books and releases. But now, I really don't have a choice. Both of my disorders cause mind fog and if I hope to get anything done properly, well, I don't have a choice but to plan everything out to a T.

I'm actually kind of excited about this! I've wanted to be that planner lady for years and years and now, I might finally have the motivation and actual need to keep it up. I hope. Can you help me? Remind me? Let me know when I'm slacking? Thanks! I knew you'd be supportive like you always have been.

Here is to a great new year for everyone! Drop me a line or a comment and let me know about your new year motivation and how you keep it or lose it. I'd love to hear all about it.

Until Next Time.... *Copy from*
