I'm not very good at New Year's resolutions. Although I have set myself a goal of some sort this year. I signed up to the Writer's Bureau Proofreading and Copy Editing course. And my goal is to complete this before May half-term.
You can take two years to do it, but I was told it can be completed in four months. And let's face it, the sooner I complete it the sooner I benefit from it. I'm hoping it will help with my own writing and editing, the editing part being a weakness of mine, and who knows, I may even get to work freelance as a proofreader/copy editor.
With the kids back to school, yesterday was my full day at home and I cracked on. I am still writing my positives into a diary every evening, two years on. It really does help you focus on the good things in life rather than the bad things. I don't have exciting things to put in every day. Yesterday's three positives were; I started and finished module one of my course, I did some writing and I worked out. But I felt so positive that I'd achieved a lot and ticked some jobs off my to-do list that last night, I wrote at the front of the diary, "Be Proactive Not Reactive."
|Another of my resolutions. Not very successful at it though.|
I could just do with earning some more money so that I could have that holiday abroad I keep dreaming about....
