Never Give Up
During these last days of 2016, I have been evaluating my progress towards my goals for the year.
I did lose forty pounds, and I’ve kept the weight off during the holidays. That’s a large check. Yay, me!
However, I wanted to publish two books, and I have yet to publish even one. Yes, I finished writing Understanding Elizabeth, but I’m in the editing process.
Just as the verses say, it’s time for me to forget what I have not achieved and focus on my goal: to publish the book. Dwelling on my failure will only bog me down and defeat me.
Instead, I need to look ahead. Eyes forward. A new year is coming.
I will pass that finish line soon. In fact, I already have an idea for the book that will follow Understanding Elizabeth.
As soon as I hit the publish button on KDP, I will start writing and posting Mr. Darcy’s Dog Tale on BeyondAusten.com.
Happy 2017 to all of you! What are your goals for the new year? If you have no target, you won’t hit it.
