I’m writing this entry exceptionally early because I doubt I’ll be home soon enough to write one at the usual time. Or even today. See, the Nichols clan is going out to a string of places, and Natalie is already trying to get me to drink. And we haven’t even left the house yet!
Since this is New Year’s Eve, I’ve been doing a lot of reflection on 2017 and what I hope 2018 to be. I even looked at last years New Year’s Eve Diary entry to see if I managed to pull off my resolutions, and here’s how I fared:
- Lose 10 pounds: Done! In the first month of the year, actually. And kept it off. 😉
- Publish 12 books: Done! More, actually, if you count my pen names!
- No drinking: Well. See, about this one… 😁 Yeah, this is definitely the one resolution I didn’t keep. Not only did I not keep it, I practically swan-dived off the wagon not keeping it.
So, I guess it’s time to make more resolutions, right?
Except I won’t.
I mean, I’ve made them every year since I was nine, but this year…I’m actually happy with my life and who I’ve become. I don’t think there are drastic enough things to change about me to require resolutions. That’s not to say that I’m perfect, but I genuinely like myself. I actually love who I am. I don’t think I need resolutions.
So, having said that, I hope all of my Alexaliens not only have a beautiful New Year’s Eve celebration but also prepare themselves to tackle the new year with all the ferocity and spirit that I know they possess.
After all, to be one of my readers, you have to be a pretty unique puppy. 😁
In all seriousness, be safe. There’s only one of you. And I look forward to talking to all of you throughout 2018. ❤
