For a very long time, my father would close out each year with... "it has to be better next year". It often wasn't. Sometimes, it was even worse. If I were to list the things we've endured as a family and I've endured as an individual, it would be a very long, sad list. But, that is not where my thoughts are this year. Of course, I always hope for an even better year to come. Yet, this year has been awesome in a way few have been.
Can you say you followed your dream this year? I have. Okay, I'll be honest and admit that I was dragged kicking and screaming toward my dream. I was terrified to reach for it but I was convinced it was there waiting for me. And, it was. Not one but two books published, to amazing reviews and responses. An actual author event of my own, thanks to Read On Til Morning of San Pedro, again to incredible reviews. I even have my own author page on Amazon. I feel so blessed!
Do you have a dream? Does it seem ridiculously out of reach? My wish for you, for 2015, is that you take the first steps toward your dream. However strange or silly or frightening it seems, take those steps. Set in motion those things that must happen to bring your dream home to you. I can tell you from my own experience that you will not ever regret reaching for those stars.
