We're about two months or so into 2017, and I think it's time for a pep talk. Or a kick in the pants. Or both.
Those resolutions we set in January? Those goals from 2016 we shifted over to this year? Those dreams we had long ago? Remember all of them? Good.
Now don't you forget them. And don't let anyone else convince you to forget them.
"THE WORLD IS FILLED WITH PEOPLE
WHO HAVE GIVEN UP ON THEIR DREAMS
AND NOW SPEND THEIR LIVES
TRYING TO GET OTHERS
TO GIVE UP ON THEIRS."
I've met those people. Sometimes they look like teachers, family members, friends. Some told me that I couldn't do this writing thing. A lot don't read my work. Some breezily say things about my blog, like "Oh, I don't think to look at it." Others never ask about my writing at all.
But you know what? I'm still here. I don't know what they're doing, but I'm still creating, still dreaming, still setting goals, still writing.
And so are you.
You better be. Don't you give up and leave me all alone out here.
Are you kicking 2017's rear with all your accomplishments and successes? Are naysayers getting under your skin? Are you struggling with obstacles, with setbacks? Have you had to re-evaluate your goals, find a different path for achieving them? No shame in that - I've been there!
