Ringing in the New Year: 2015 Goals

Well 2014 is winding down, and I can't say I'm too broken up over it. This was a rough year for a lot of reasons, and while I'm reflecting, I'd rather not list them all.

Still, this year was good to me. I landed an agent, I grew a year older (hooray for living), I learned I have a green thumb with just about everything but succulents, I bought a whiteboard, I 100% approved of my sister's choice in husband, I found out I'm going to be an aunt, I finished the first draft of my fourth book, I became a redhead and then a blonde, I met a wallaby, Sailor Moon came back, I painted my dining room, I hung a shit ton of art, I reached the 5 year mark in my marriage, I ate crawfish for the first time, I mapped out an entire book series, I went on a ghost tour in Savannah, and I tore up a linoleum floor.

On to 2015!

Inspiration for the year:

My goals:

  • Do more yoga (get back to a minimum of three classes per week whenever possible)
  • Write at least five days a week (or do some action related to writing)
  • Read at least 3 books a month (36 books)
  • Get less irritated with my husband when he talks to me while reading or writing
  • Grow a new type of vegetable--maybe peans or beans 
  • Start an herbal tea or medicinal herb garden
  • Paint another room in my house
  • Write another book
  • Sell a book, God willing
  • Plant a plant just for the beauty of it
  • Learn to leave work at work (whenever possible)
  • Be kinder to others
  • Be kinder to myself
  • Give more kisses
  • See Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters
  • Call my dad more
  • Be okay with not being able to do everything
  • Buy a cute table and chairs for my front porch
  • Frown less, smile more

Here's to 2015!


  1. I really, really, REALLY need you to sell your book, okay? Okay, great! :D

    Happy 2015 to you, Liz ^_^

  2. "Get less irritated with my husband when he talks to me while reading or writing." <-- Yes, this, and my daughter as well. (Oops!) 2014 hasn't been my favorite either, and I'm hoping for all the good things for us in 2015. Happy New Year, Liz!

  3. Wishing you a happy 2015, Liz, and tons of luck in achieving your goals! :)

  4. I love your goals, Liz! They're a great combo of big and small things and encompass all aspects of your life. Very cool. :-) I hope 2015 is a truly fantastic year for you!
