Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 252 – Year End

img_00411

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Thank you for finding another inspirational set of words, Spidey!

You know, I often wonder what the big deal is about New Year.

It’s just marking the passing of time, yet so many of us put great store into the New Year, and what it will bring us.

But then, is not every morning a new start? A new chapter in your life? Another chance to right wrongs, or begin a new regime?

I do try to start each day with that positivity, but I know, it’s not always easy to wipe the slate of yesterday truly clean, and emerge in the morning, unscathed by the happenings of the day before. There may be deadlines at work, issues with colleagues, family, or even friends. Someone might be unwell.

On this note, I do like to think of each year as another chapter in my life book. I have plenty of chapters to look back upon, to learn from, to reminisce, and laugh at.

But this new year, it brings with it possibilities.

Who knows what will happen in the future? No one.

But, if you want to do something, it is in your hands to start the wheels of fortune turning, and make something of your dreams and ideas.

And what better time to make those plans than at the beginning of the New Year?

I don’t know it, but I have a feeling in my bones… 2020 might just be the start of something big. I have hopes and dreams, and I have had them for a while. But I decided I wouldn’t leave them as thoughts, but make them happen!

  • Publish that novel! And I am already on plan for that, with a release date of 9th February, 2020! (If you want to preorder the Kindle Edition, click here, getbook.at/MarriageUnarranged , and the paperback should (cover pending) be available to order from Amazon on the same day!
  • Make some real headway on book two (and even three!), whenever I get the time to sit and write.
  • Do something with my children’s stories. I have 2 picture book style texts ready, and a third that is half done, but alas, I am not an illustrator! But research time… Who knows, I might end the year as a published poet, novelist and children’s writer! (DREAM BIG!)
  • Do something with our house – we either need a MAJOR refurb, to give more space for the kids, and repair a whole host of issues, or look for a new forever home… the plans are there… hope this one is also achieved this year too!
  • Finish my first full teaching year with my own class on a HIGH! It has been tough, the last few years, having to share a class, and split myself between two (and sometimes, three) classes. This time, I was given my own space, my own class, and with it comes a new set of responsibilities. I want to show my Headteacher, I can smash it. I’m hopeful! (even with my special Beauts!)

So, Peeps, what have you got in your 2020 plans, so far?

Have a peaceful last Sunday of the year, and decade, Peeps  And enjoy your New Year celebrations! ❤

    My spiritual outlook of “all things are perfect and work out in the end” mean that the New Year is really just a day. I look forward to each day (though sometimes that is a stretch) and know deep down that all is and will be okay. Glad you have goals in place. That is important all the time! Very Nice Post.

    Setting goals is a positive and proactive way to approach life…as long as you don’t beat yourself up for missing some of them, as things change that cant always be anticipated…you have set great goals and I look forward to seeing your post next year at this time looking back on them!

    It is time for reflections Ritu and some are better doing this one time a year and others prefer to go for it daily.
    Wish you and your family a wonderful and Happy New Year ❤

    The change of the year provokes us more to reflect and think if changes might be necessary (already scheduled a post about that). But people like you and I don’t wait until the end of the year, right? So many things already in our pipelines which only wait to be released like your book. My plans? To continue finally working on those projects again which are really meaningful to me. I am so happy I prepared the conditions to get there again! Have a great Sunday, sis 💖

      Thank you so much, Darlene!
      I think, if you have something to strive for, you are more likely to at least be going in the right direction!
      Happy New Year to you and yours too! ❤
