Another year begins.
I have no idea what this year is going to bring. I wish I did. I only know a few things.
1.) I’m going to (try to) be a better person. I’m going to try and be less selfish, less moody, less sad.
2.) I’m going to (try to) stop doubting myself. I wrote a book. Not everyone can do that. Even if I can’t finish a second book, writing one is a huge accomplishment. It may never get published, but if it doesn’t, who cares? People have read it and like it. That’s enough.
3.) Life is hard. A new year doesn’t necessarily bring a fresh start or a bright, shiny new life.
4.) The only person I can rely on is me. I have to make things happen for me if I want them to happen to me.
5.) I’m going to be a nomad again for a while. My house-sitting gig has kicked back in. WAY better than living with my parents seven days a week.
So, it’s 2010. Life soldiers on. I’m the same person I was in 2009, but hopefully this year will bring about some happy changes. For me and for you.
