Big Goal

Thursday, March 3, 2016

When my kids were little, we always went to my and R's hometown for Christmas.  The aircraft company that he worked for always closed the week between Christmas and New Years so we had time to spend with both of our families.  It was important to us to have C and M grow up around their grandparents even though we lived 10 hours away.

The drive home was always long, but one thing always stayed the same.  We talked about goals for the coming year.  We wrote those goals down.  I hope the kids remember doing this because I think it is important to have goals and share them with others.

I haven't made a lot of goals since R died.  My life has just not been the same and to be really honest, just making it through the days was a really lofty goal.  But now that I feel like I have my feet under me again, I have a big goal to share.  This is funny to me because I don't have many readers to this blog... I haven't shared it with anyone in my family  as of yet because I like the idea of my words just going out into the great void of the Internet and hopefully someone finding them who needs to see it at that certain time.

Here is the goal--- to grow this blog...To up my readership... to write on a regular basis.  A friend who has always encouraged me to write told me about this book Your Life Is A Book: How to craft & publish your memoir .  Reading this book is going to be my jumping off place.  It has writing prompts at the end of each chapter.  I will not bore you with a too long post today by answering the first prompt, but it will be soon.

So there you have it... My first goal in a very long time.  I hope I reach it.

I saw this and thought it was so funny.  I sent it to my mom, sister and M.  The thought of being on a high horse may be part of my next post!!
