Allow Yourself To Be Greater 

As 2015 comes to a close, I think back to what a year this had been. It wasn’t all bad and it wasn’t all good, yet it prepared me for what  is to come.  

What an interesting year! A year of learning and challenges. I want to share this poem below with you for I found it quite inspiring. Be better, greater, heck be all you can be in 2016, and on December 31, 2016 you can look back on all the amazing accomplishments you made. Happy New Year!!! 

 Allow yourself to dream,

And when you do dream big.

Allow yourself to learn,
And when you do learn all you can.

Allow yourself to laugh,
And when you do share your laughter.

Allow yourself to set goals,
And when you do reward yourself as you move forward.

Allow yourself to be determined,
And when you do you will find you will succeed.

Allow yourself to believe in yourself,
And when you do you will find self-confidence.

Allow yourself to lend a helping hand,
And when you do a hand will help you.

Allow yourself relaxation,
And when you do you will find new ideas.

Allow yourself love,
And when you do you will find love in return.

Allow yourself to be happy,
And when you do you will influence others around you.

Allow yourself to be positive,
And when you do life will get easier.

Finish Line: Novel Completed

Whew! Back on July 13, 2015, I started the rewrite on my novel, Secrets Unveil This was for a 90-day challenge for a writer’s group by my favorite author, Mary B. Morrison.

I am so thrilled for that motivation, the determination to finished a novel I started several years ago. It has been challenging, especially when you have everyday life issues jumping in the way. Nevertheless, I did it and I’m proud! Yay!

I’m planning on taking a week away then go back for the editing stage before I consider sending it off to a professional editor. I really can use a second pair of eyes. Later on, I’m writing a sequel to Secrets Unveil; I fell in love with my characters and don’t want to stop telling their stories. They won’t stop “talking” anyway. LoL! You can read about them here.

When you want to do something that you have always wanted to do, do NOT let anyone persuade you not to. You are the captain of your ship. It’s your life. Preserve on.
