Page Turner Resolution for 2013

1 Jan

I’m pretty sure it was just last week when I was making my 2012 resolutions. Where did the last 365 days go?

Simon & Schuster tweeted a quote from one of my favorite country artists, Brad Paisley. It was a simple little statement but it stopped me in my tracks.

And I thought, “Yes!” It’s so true for everyone but especially for a writer. A clean slate. An unfilled notebook. A word of possibilities.

So here goes my New Year’s resolution: stress less.

What does that mean? I’m going to fill my new book with at least one thing every day that makes me happy. I’m going to call it my “happy thang” in honor of Mr. Paisley. While I’d love to say that I’m going to blog about it everyday, the reality is that life is going to get in the way.

BUT…

I will at least try to recap some of my “happy thangs” every week as I am embarking on another project. My 52 weeks of “Pin Me.”

I love me some Pinterest but I find that I pin away and then rarely go back to review or actually do any of the pins. Oh sure, I tend to pick up products I want when I’m out shopping. And I have made a few recipes here and there, but for the amount of things I had to pin because I didn’t want to forget them, I find myself not executing most of them.

That is all going to change in 2013. I promise to once a week do/make/purchase/ponder/engage in at least one of my pins. It might be a DIY project. It could be a new recipe or I may just enjoy a good quote, but I am going to start utilizing my pins.

So, with that said, be sure to visit my blog again where I will be posting my  “Pin Progress.”

Oh, I almost forgot to tell you today’s Happy Thang. Went for a late breakfast (1pm) with some friends and hung out for a couple of hours talking over coffee.

Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!

PS…What is on the first page of your new book?
