I can’t believe we’re over halfway through 2012. It’s scary how quickly this year is going. I thought the half-year mark would be a good opportunity to look back on some of my goals for 2012. Although I didn’t write down strict resolutions, I turned to inspiration the desire for change as my starting blocks for this year.
And despite having lots of fears and doubts, I did make some important changes and I did try to inspire myself to follow my dreams. I quit my job and my last day was at the end of March, I finished a novel I started this year and have come with ideas for a few more. I just hit the 40,000 word mark on my next story and I’m so pleased I made the leap to try to become a published writer. I love writing and my passion has increased being able to focus on it more. I’m currently waiting on a full request from an agent and I feel more ready than ever to make my dreams come true. The worst part is waiting!
The biggest step for me has been declaring myself as a writer. That was scary but I’m so glad I did it. I’ve had loads of support from family and friends and you guys and it really helped me be able to write and not feel ashamed or guilty or nervous about it. I am a writer. I’m yet to be paid to do it but one step at a time
Even if it doesn’t work out, I’ll know I really gave it my all this year. I can look back on 2012 with no regrets which is what I wanted when this year began. I took the leap, I made the changes and I just hope the second half of the year will prove that it was all worth it. I’ve got all my finger’s crossed – when they’re not typing, of course!
How are your 2012 goals panning out at the halfway mark?
