My main goal was to reinvent myself – and oh boy did I. I was thinking of my writing career, life decided every area needed some fine tuning.
Here are my top three life lessons, I learned in 2016….
1. Not every story is meant to be written by me….I started the year with a story that had awesome characters. A solid plot. Subplots that would engage the reader and move the characters toward an amazing ending… I tried all year to write this story…never could get past page 5. I tried every method of brain storming, planning, non-planning, and NOTHING. The fact is this isn’t my story to tell. And that’s key in so many ways to other areas of my life. Not every problem is mine to fix.
2. The second and almost as profound of a lesson as #1…when doing a google search for a crock pot recipe, the ‘r’ in crock is soooooo verrrrrry important! *still twitching*
3. Doughnuts are a necessary part of my life. Yes they are unhealthy globs of dough…that make me smile. Bring me comfort when life is spinning way too fast. And I’ve found nothing that taste as good. I tried to give them up in September….this was hands down my most unsuccessful endeavor of the year. Because for me life isn’t worth living if I can’t have one unhealthy glob of dough a week.
