2019 will have some major challenges.
I am working while raising three kids as a single mom. I am trying hard to finish a terminal degree that will allow for more opportunities at work (ei, more money, health insurance, stability). My porch needs some repair as well and there is a deadline on this.
Fine, those are the musts.
But what about my dreamings? What visions of success can I lay out to keep me focused? And with that I present to you the 2019 Goal List and Theme Word:
Going beyond writing and sending out work every day.
Quote of the year:
“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship
