Still, I wanted to take a quick minute to wish you all a happy 2016.
The year 2015 has been that turning point year I have been wishing for. It was the year of an important ending, as I graduated with that dream MFA degree. And it was the year of a huge beginning, as I embarked on a brand new dream job and career.
In my ever-evolving and exciting life, I have moved around in every way; I have started and ended many things: friendships, manuscripts and yes, jobs and careers. Now though I find myself in a different place.
I declare this year 2016 to be the year of continuing.
My top wish/goal/hope and resolution for 2016 is to continue strong and stronger on the teaching journey I have begun, to become a true and real professional in every way and to bring my students toward real, life-changing gains.
My other resolutions:
to continue to honor every part of what it means to be human, which includes keeping my body in shape and taking joy in my family;
to continue the new novel I started this summer;
to continue this blog, even if that means incredibly patchy and sporadic postings;
Endings are bitter-sweet; beginnings are exciting. But continuation is what allows us the time, the space and the strength to make great things happen. So, here is to a great new year of…continuing!
Love and best wishes to all,
