Well, it is nearly time to say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018. What a year it has been. Lots of ups and downs, laughter, tears and tantrums.
On reflection I am happy that I have fulfilled one of my dreams and that is getting my poetry out into the big, wide world. As scary as it has been, I am so glad that I have done it, onwards and upwards.
I haven't done a resolutions list for a long time, as I used to write them, put them away and then forget about what I wanted to change. This coming year I plan to be more pro active in my poetry, network more, and have less written down to do lists (as I feel very incompetent when I don't tick them all off). I want to laugh more, frown less and generally be happy. This year has taught me that life is very short.
I wish you good health, happiness, laughter and wealth for the coming new year and pray that your hopes, wishes and dreams come true.
