Beginning My New Ending

“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” -Maria Robinson

As you can tell by the dates of my posts over the course of this blog’s existence, I’ve had a lot of false starts, stumbles, unplanned hiatuses, and a whole lot of cause to start over. That’s actually kind of the story of my life. I crank out a few chapters, lose focus, and fail to finish things. I’m disorganized, inconsistent, spacey, and I would even go so far as to call myself lazy. At least, I used to.

I’m going to be honest with you. I’ve hit a breaking point in my life, guys. I can’t handle the chaos anymore. Sometimes I lose track of things; everything gets out of hand, and I get overwhelmed. I feel like I’m drowning in all the chaos, and I’ve made it myself. In the past, I’ve used my ADD, Type II Bipolar, and depression issues as a crutch. I’ve let my life get way too far out of hand.

Today, I decided I’m not going to do that anymore. Other people have exactly the same amount of hours in their days as I do mine, and I can be a more organized, productive, successful person. I choose to, both in my writing life and in my personal life.

I’m taking the 30 days to a cleaner house challenge starting on August 1, and I’m looking for accountability partners, so if you’re interested let me know. I got the plan for the 30-day challenge HERE. I’m actually considering talking to them about the possibility of turning that plan into a daily planner for the whole year where you can check off the items listed for that day and know you’ve got a cleaner, more organized home.

That brings me to some exciting news regarding my writing life. I just designed The Book Reviewer’s Journal, and it will be available in print soon! I’ll edit in the link when that happens. Anyway, here’s to a cleaner, more organized, more productive, and more successful life!
