#GoodthingTuesday

This year I’m starting something new because I think it’s time to start counting my blessings and being more positive. 2020 kicked my ass into the negativity ring in many ways and I want to reconfigure my mind set.

Soooooo…..

Every Tuesday I’m going to be be putting something in my GOOD THING JAR and announcing it here on the blog. At the end of 2021 – no matter what happens this year – I’ll empty the jar and reflect on all the positive things that happened during the year instead of dwelling on the negative.

Here’s my jar:

Today, I’m putting in this: I finished book 2 in A PRIDE OF BROTHERS!

The reason this is such a good thing is because I have been struggling to finish this story for a while. I kept getting pulled away from it and finally – finally – I devoted all of December to just writing it and no other writing projects.

Would you like to share one good thing that happened to you this week? I’m here to cheer you on!!!!

And the moment has arrived….

It’s release day!!! I’m sitting in my pajamas, a cup of congratulatory tea in my hand, looking at this:

This is my dream board. I started it a few months back when I was hoping to have my first book published. That hope turned into reality today with the publication of Skater’s Waltz.

I’ve been told by a few people that dream boards are a waste of time, energy, and paper. Why, I’ve been asked, do you need to waste your time cutting out pictures and sayings of what you want? Why not just got for it and do what you need to do to make your dreams come through?  Those people are not really friends of mine. My friends applaud the way I put my internal dreams and hopes into a touchable, readable, living entity. They agree that when you dream it, think it, and speak it, every desire in your heart can come true. When you put your hopes into a tangible, cohesive layout, you can get a better feel, a much clearer view, of how you are going to achieve those goals and dreams.

My dream board is covered with positive affirmations of what I want my writing career to look like and be. It tells the story of how I see myself at this moment in time, and where I see my life leading me now that it is going through such a monumental change. When I look at it, I see the path I took to get here and the road I need to travel from this day on.

My dreams have become reality…yours can, too.

If you dream it, you can be it, do it, and have it.
