It is that time of the year again where everyone decides that the time to do something you have always wanted to do is now. I fully support this notion and always have had a passion for believing in my goals and have grown to be very fond of reviewing them every year. This year I worked out in the “field” gathering information and asking friends and family to share their New Years resolutions in order to gain insight into other people’s goals and plans. I have learned that many of the dreams the people in my life are hoping for are similar to ones that have been on my past or current lists. We all want to improve, but not everyone can find the motivation to keep it going and that is why I believe that sharing my trial and errors with others will help.
This year, I completed my wish list like usual and feverishly started my plans to attack and to accomplish. Like most people I felt fear that something would get in my way and knew that there was a chance that my plans would not work out the way I had hoped. I knew that I had to do something different this year to ensure that I stayed on track. For me, that was reaching out for help from someone I trust. The person I chose to ask was my middle sister, Julie. Julie and I grew up sharing a room together for 14 years and we experienced our whirlwind childhood together. I knew that if there were anyone in the world who could help me write a book (my most desired outcome) it would be her. She was quick to respond and immediately gave me some advice on best practices to support my plan. There is no better person to inspire me than the big sister who was by my side going through all of the same hardships in the earliest years of my life, which have ultimately molded me into the person I am today.
I want this book to be motivational to anyone who wants to go against the grain or live a better life than the one your current direction is leading you toward. This book will encourage you to actually listen to the little voice in your head that is shooting for the stars, and for the dreams you just can’t stop wishing for!
