Kind of…Sort of…In a Kevin Bacon six degrees of separation type thing..
Hindsight by Melanie Casey (Goodreads)
I am loving the place where I am currently working and I’m sad at the time time because it’s only for a month and I’m actually trying to move away for the area I am currently working at. However, one of my duties is, for the moment, Library duties and this book happened to pass across the check in table. One of the Librarians suggested that I take a look at it as it was writing by someone who in the past had done our creative writing course. Which I thought was very exciting, and kind of sad, because we don’t have the course anymore.
Needless to say that it has completely inspired me and I have even found her on Goodreads, with really good reviews. Between reading this and writing all weekend, I’m surprised that I’ve even had time to sit down and write any Blog post whatsoever! It truly did inspire me.
What about yourselves? Have you ever been connected to anyone famous, has it inspired you?
It is no secret fact that the end of a year, any year, it makes people reflect and look back at the year and decide what they wish to improve on for the new year coming.
Last year what I did was instead of making resolutions for the year coming, I made a list of what I was going to leave behind in the past year. I actually found this was really a lot better than making promises into the future. Mainly because we don’t know what the future holds for us. So instead of promising myself that I would “lose weight” I worked on writing less emo-type posts.
I found that by making promises to myself of what I’m leaving behind, I could concentrate on that. I could work on myself and then I was able to work on things that were thrown at me in my future, things that I didn’t see coming. I have to say that personally it did work for me, so I shall be doing that again. Instead of starting new problems, I decided to work on old issues of mine so that I could leave them behind.
Here are a couple of things that I will be leaving behind in 2015:
- Less talking about my ex’s, so I can concentrate on my new partner
- Being unproductive and be more proactive on finding a job IN a Library, rather than just having a job.
- MORE motivation for meditation!
What are your “tricks” for the New Year? Do you make resolutions, or do you do something else instead, make a goal for the new year?
