I read an article on resolutions on the website Career Authors. The fresh take on the tradition of making New Year's resolutions describes perfectly my desire to slow my life to a reasonable pace, to allow myself more time to think and reflect.
Article author Glenn Miller writes:
What if instead of resolutions, you chose not what you will do, but who you will be?
My main goal for 2018 is to simplify my life. I want more time in the mountains to see creatures like this Bighorn Sheep, and to hike, camp, and fish. As I prioritize, I plan to continue writing short stories and novels. That is one thing I won't be trimming from my schedule. In fact, I hope to make more time for my writing.
I will also continue my Thursday short story reviews, which seem popular. I will be cutting back to one post every other week, instead of weekly. On Tuesdays, if I post, look for more nature photos.
I have more stories to tell, and not enough time to write them all down. I hope to remedy that problem in 2018.
Our life is frittered away by detail... simplify, simplify. - Henry David Thoreau
