Happy New Year And My Resolutions

It's the last day of the year and I am stunned at how quickly the time has gone. Can't believe we're at 2012, the Mayan apocalypse if you believe that stuff. I don't. After the craptacular way 2011 started and ended for me, I have to believe that 2012 is going rock. I've made some resolutions to help me get my act together this new year.

1. Get healthy I know I resolve to lose weight, etc, every year, but the way my health has been of late, I really need to get on track. I'm sufficiently scared to do this. Plus, I will be standing up in November to a wedding on the Maya Riviera and I want to look and feel my best.

2. New job. I really, really need some full time work. This hustling with freelance and no insurance is killing me.

3. Get my writing organized and get out those two novels that have been gathering serious dust in the back of my desk. I want them published and am determined to see this happened.

There are only three, but these are going to be tough and I feel that if I can accomplish them, then my 2012 will be epic.

I have gotten so much wonderful, amazing support and words of encouragement from all of you out there, it has really humbled and stunned me. I think you all are the best blog buddies anywhere and I hope that 2012 brings you all good things, huge success and dreams come true. I look forward to spending more time with you next year and hearing all about your joys, your successes and your troubles. You will always have a friend here.

  1. Melissa, may you achieve all of that and more! And you can do it. Just make the decision and then do whatever it takes.
    You are definitely one of the most special friends I've made online. Your support and friendship mean the world to me. You rock!
    Now tomorrow, have a fantastic New Year's Eve no matter what.

  2. All terrific goals, and achievable too. Where your head goes your ass will follow. :)

    Yowzer, your novel, Byzantine Provocateur, just about melted the insides of my new Kindle it was so hot and steamy. Terrific read. Your voice is so confident and intelligent. Glad to hear there are more novels in the drawer ready to come out.

    Happy New Year, Melissa!!

  3. Those are three worthy goals. I'm in the same vote as you for number one. I say it every year, but this year, I have to do it to better my health. I don't want to give up my cookies!

    Happy New Year! :)

  7. Mel, you're such a positive person and that's one of the reasons I love you so much. Your goals are all important. Being healthy is a must, because after all, your entire life depends on that. I hope you'll get a well-paid full-time job in 2012, and I have no worries about your writing. You're clever enough to figure that out. Hugs!

  9. I feel the Mayan apocalypse is upon us, Melsy, which is why we must enjoy food, sex and films double the time more than this year :))) But I have a feeling the two of us will be left to fight of zombie armies...
    Drop me a line at Face for weight losing tips :) You know I lost 60 pounds once

  17. @Siv LOL I hear you on the in one year thing. Setting resolutions and following through for the whole year is difficult. I have faith this year that I will follow through and I have the support of you. Your comments and presence here at my little place mean so much to me. Thank you. :)

  19. Happy New Year! Let's hope we all don't go down in a wave of angry Mayans riding Apocalyptic motorcycles. Or something like that. So long as I can see Haywire before we all die, I'm happy.

    All great New Years resolutions! Sounds a lot like mine. Best of luck in succeeding with them! Onward!

    Have a wonderful New Year, Melissa!

  21. HAPPY NEW YEAR Melissa! I hope 2012 turns out to be a fabulous one!! Those are some great resolutions! I still haven't narrowed mine down but it always usually comes down to losing weight as well (story of my life, haha).

    I have really enjoyed coming by your amazing blog and learning more about you. I can't wait to see what's next. : )

  22. Happy New Year, Melissa! Once you conquer your three biggest objectives in the new year, and I harbor no doubt you will, I'll be in my corner of the blogosphere (and Twitter!) to offer a most sincere congratulations. In the spirit of preemptive declarations, therefore, I say congrats, Mel. Those goals you've set for yourself stand no chance of impeding your progress.

  23. Here is to achieving your listed 3 and I'm so with you on the full time work and no insurance, it sucks!!!

    So let's meet here next year and do it all again. :)

  25. @M Happy New Year! I just got an image of Mel Gibson's Apocalypto peeps riding on Vespas chasing me. LOL Haywire is definitely on my 2012 must see list. I will truly cry if this movie is not even more exciting than the trailer. But I have a feeling it will be more than worth the wait.

    Success to you in your resolutions. 2012 is going to be epic. :)
