So, for the next year I hope life (and my hard work) takes me to a finished first draft of my novel, better job satisfaction working under my new supervisor, another Ragnar relay completed, another half marathon with a better time than the first one, continued success with my fitness insuring many more years of life ahead of me, lots of time spent with my kids making fun memories, and quality time with Hubby who I’ve now been with for eighteen years next month. Throw in time with my extended family and close friends and my year should be pretty full. And of course I’ll share the ups and downs of all of it with you, my readers.

Blog Challenge Day 29 – Hopes, dreams and plans for the next year
I’m not someone who sits down and makes goals and then breaks them down into short term steps to reach long term steps and then march through them and arrive at the end where life will then magically be perfect. I leave that up to people who buy day planners and subscribe to that kind of philosophy. Instead, I take every day as it comes and live it to the fullest. I have a vision of what the future looks like and every choice I make hopefully leads me closer toward it. But, if I somehow end up on a side track that turns out pretty cool, the route will shift. Case in point, when I was in high school I dreamed of being a pilot and for a while I was training for that and exploring the possibilities. And then I stumbled into a job that ended up being way more fun and I’ve built a career out of it. Same thing when it came to being a parent – TOTALLY stumbled into that one but then embraced it and never looked back. If I were a goal setter, I’d look like a failure on paper when looking back.
