Happy New Year!


Well, we have made it to the end of 2016. It has been a rough year all around and I, for one, am not sad to see it go. 2017 will be a year of unknowns and I’m sure it will hold many challenges.

I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you a very happy New Year. My “resolutions” if you can call them that focus on self-improvement. I hope to continue writing, both here on the blog as well as my fiction work that I have been trying to improve this year. I have also been attempting to improve my French skills this year and hope to work more on that in the coming year. An overarching resolution is to improve my productivity in all facets of my life.

I would also like to ask for suggestions from you, my readers. What kind of content are you interested in hearing about in 2017? This has been a main reason for my lack of blogging this year. I am not sure what direction to take this blog. Any suggestions from you would be greatly appreciated. As survivors, what do you need to hear or to learn more about?

Take care tonight, be safe, and enjoy your New Year’s celebrations. May 2017 bring positive changes in your life.

Happy New Year!

The Journey of a New Year

Happy New Year!




As 2015 came to a close, many social media sites provide users “Year in Review” type documents. Facebook showed me my year in photos. It is always fun to look back at friends and family. Goodreads showed me the many books that I read in 2015. I exceeded my Reading Challenge Goal, and got to see what all of my friends have been reading. My “to read” list is getting longer by the second, I am afraid.
But then I got my WordPress Year in Review. This was very disappointing to me. Apparently, I have only written seven posts this year. I must apologize for that. There are several reasons for my lack of writing. On the negative side, my life at work has been extremely emotionally draining this year. This leaves me exhausted at the end of the day. I often am left with only the energy to curl up on the couch and play Candy Crush. On the positive side, when I do have energy I have been involved in a lot of fiction writing, which is taking my creative energy away from the blog. This is a good thing! I am trying to nurture my creative side as I get to “a certain age” and find myself thinking of what my next steps in life might be.
