HAPPY 2013!January 1, 2013
I've decided to make this year the best year ever! Although the competition is pretty stiff as I've had some really great years in the past... 2008 for example, when I married Allison. Or 2011, when we had Madison. Or that year I mastered R Kelly's I Believe I Can Fly on the trumpet. I guess that last one doesn't exactly compare, but it was still pretty awesome. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and it's possible that all events have been leading up to now... the New Year... this New Year.
Without further adieu, here's what I'm expecting to happen over the next 12 months (blog-wise):
- regular/frequent posting schedule... I'm thinking once a day Monday-Friday, for now
- find a way to increase views/buzz/audience/word on the street
- make Mr. Write Away all that it can be
- a feature somewhere, somehow wouldn't hurt anything
There comes a point in every one's life where they stop and realize that they've made their dreams come true and it's time to dream bigger OR that they've never actually taken the chance to chase said dreams therefore never really achieving them. For me, unfortunately, it's the latter. However, I intend to change that starting with the New Year. After all, how can I encourage Madison to chase her dreams when I haven't tried myself (insert cliche sayings here like: practice what you preach and lead by example).
My resolution is to lace up my shoes and run full speed in the direction I've always wanted to go, to write (anything) until I cannot write anymore then force myself to write something else. To be the best me/father/husband I can be... and to lose weight, eat healthier, stop cussing as much, blah blah blah. BUT in the meantime, as Montell Jordan would say, tip up your cup and throw your hands up and let me hear the party say...
