So, today is the last day of January in this New Year. The month of fresh exciting resolutions that seem to just dissolve into thin air? How are you doing with yours?
I had decided to do my resolutions a little differently this year. Over many years, observing what motivates the people I know, I have realized that what works for me, may not work for you. What works for you, may not work for me. For me what does not work for me is setting a goal and telling others about it. Trust me, I'm hard enough on myself. I don't need others hounding me. But that motivation works for some.
So rather than blurt out one resolution for January 1st — one that is supposed to last the whole year, but is lucky to survive one week — I've decided to break my resolutions down month by month. Revealing my resolution at the end of that month. Presumably, said resolution would have been accomplished.
As for January, I'm proud to announce my resolution was accomplished.
I completed, writing and illustrating, the prototype for a children's book for my niece's first birthday. It's called, "Spring Tickles" and I will be publishing it through blurb.com. It will be the first in a series of books I have in mind for her.
Okay, now... on to February.
