I've been away from AW for awhile...overwhelmed with personal stuff...and I come back to find that no one has started a 2009 Resolution Thread! So here we go.

What are you New Year's Resolutions or goals. This does NOT have to be all writing related.

I'll start.

1. Run a 10k.
2. Find an agent. :roll:
3. Finish my current WIP.
4. Write another.
5. Work on ME - try some new things, meet new people, go beyond my comfort zone.

This year is truly a new start for me.

All right ya'll, your turn!

To be a better mom. Not a better mother, because I care for my child, and I provide for him. But I need to work on mom.

That's it.

I resolve to make no resolutions. Lessens the disappointment that way.

I preached last Sunday, hoping to encourage people in Celina's position. I've posted the sermon below in case it might help someone. It's a Christian sermon, and I make no apologies for that, but if you're not Christian, I would hope that you could get something out of it too. (And I hope it's not too long...)

Scriptures: Luke 2:22-40; Isaiah 61:10-62:3

Just Past Splat

It’s coming up on that time again, and I was wondering—How many of you are planning to make New Year’s resolutions this year?

How many of you are NOT planning to make New Year’s resolutions, because you’ve never made New Year’s resolutions?

And how many of you are planning to not make New Year’s resolutions, because in the past you’ve found yourself making the same resolutions over and over and over and over again, and failing every year to follow through?

If you’re in that last group, you’re not alone, I’m afraid. And the story I’m about to tell is just for you, though I’m sure the rest of you will enjoy it too.

Picture, if you will, a road. It runs through forests and fields and cities, up hill and down. Sometimes, the road is smooth and wide and paved, and other times, it’s narrow and full of potholes. We’ll call this road “life,” because that’s it’s name.

Picture a traveller, walking along this road. Her back is bent under a heavy pack. She walks slowly, for she is weary and has been on the road a long time. She uses a walking stick to help her on her way.

Our traveller reaches a crossroads. She knows that one of the paths ahead leads to a place called “A Better Life,” and the other path leads to a place called “The Same Old Same Old.”

Beside the crossroads, there is a hut, and in front of the hut an old woodcutter sits, rocking away in his rocking chair on the front porch. She asks him, “Which path leads to A Better Life?”

Without hesitation, he points down the narrower and rockier of the two paths. The traveller thanks him and heads off down the road. A short while later, the woodcutter in his chair hears a “splat,” and soon after that, our traveller comes back to him, soaked to her knees in mud.

“I thought you said this path was the right one,” she said. “Now please tell me, which path leads to a better life?”

The woodcutter is adamant. He points her down the same path again, and reassured by his firm belief, she sets off again. A short while later, the woodcutter hears an even bigger “splat!” Soon after that, the traveller returns, and this time, she’s angry—covered to her waist in ooey, gooey mud.

“Tell me the truth, Old Man!” she shouts at him. “Which way is the road to A Better Life?”

“That way,” the woodcutter says, and something in his eyes, something in his calm insistence, something makes her believe him, and off she goes.

Of course, not very long after, the woodcutter in his rocking chair hears a very loud splat. This time, when the woman returns, she’s covered in mud from head to toe, and she’s about to use that walking stick of hers for less than peaceful purposes.

“Tell me, you varmint, you! Tell me which is the road to A Better Life!” (Not her actual wording, you understand, but I'm not allowed to swear in church...)

The woodcutter looks her in the eyes, points down the path, and says, “It’s that way, just past ‘splat.’”

Another little story, this one more literal and more personal. I’m one of those folks who makes the same New Year’s resolutions every year, and goes “splat,” usually by the end of January. If you want to know what my usual resolutions are, I always resolve to finish my novel, to lose weight, and to get my finances in order. And without fail, I go splat.

Except this year, whilst swimming around in the mud, I got a vision of what it’s going to be like when I reach that destination called “A Better Life.” Because this year, I set a huge goal, one I’ve set for myself before. But this year I reached it!

Every year for the past five, I’ve participated in a particularly mad escapade called NaNoWriMo. The goal of NaNoers, as we call ourselves, is to complete fifty thousand new words of a novel.

Before this year, I tried four times, and failed four times. It was particularly discouraging those years my kids did it with me, because they invariably beat my word count, such as it was.

But this year, I did a few things differently. I put aside the novel I’ve been working on for twenty years, and started a new one. I hooked up with friends on the internet and in real life coffee shops who egged me on. And I wrote just over fifty thousand words last month. And I finally figured out that if I can manage to get past “splat” the path continues, and it’s a fun place to travel.

It happens to us all. We set goals that we want very much to achieve, but life gets in the way. We don’t know how to do what it is we want to do. We run out of money, time, or energy. We get sick. Others who want us to stay as we are keep pulling us back into our own ways.

And we give up. Stop what we consider to be vain striving, and head down the broad, easy path to The Same Old Same Old. If God had wanted us to go down that hard path, we say to ourselves, why then, the mud and the rocks wouldn’t be there!

But is that really true?

We read today a prophet’s words of hope to a nation in exile. They’ve gone “splat” in the most humiliating way imaginable, with the common people treated as slaves in their own homeland, and the leaders exiled to a foreign place. They feel forsaken and alone. By the rivers of Babylon, they sit down and weep.

Simeon and Anna… I’m sure that at times during their long wait to see the saviour, they sat down and wept, too. “I’m an old, old man,” Simeon must have said. “I’m weary of living, God. I want to come home to you. When will that happen?” Anna, too. “I’ve been a widow for years and years and years, God. I’m lonely. Why am I still here, and not with you?”

Splat. Sometimes, even continuing to exist can be difficult.

But God came to them and comforted them. God called Israel home, to become a great nation, and to testify to the world about the beauty of the Lord. They were no more called, “Forsaken.” They no longer lived in exile, but at home in that place called A Better Life.

And God came to Simeon and Anna as a tiny baby, and their hopes and dreams were fulfilled. “My eyes have seen your salvation,” Simeon says. “A light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for the Glory of your people Israel.”

He and Anna made it through “splat,” and came to a better place.

It’s appropriate that our New Year falls during the Christmas season. For this is the time when many of us hear God calling most clearly, calling us to A Better Life. And so we make our New Year’s resolutions in that spirit.

It’s because the nation Israel kept going past “splat” that they came to be a light to the nations. It’s because Simeon and Anna kept going past “splat” that the Christ child was welcomed fittingly into the world. It’s because the disciples kept going past the biggest splat of all that we are here this morning, worshipping Jesus as the Christ.

So God calls us this New Year’s and always to keep going. To set our sights on A Better Life, and make our goals, and to keep moving towards them, even if we sometimes end up in the mud.

Back to NaNo for just a moment: On the NaNoWriMo forums on the internet, after November is over and we’ve all succeeded or failed at our goal to write fifty thousand words, we were challenged to set goals for the coming year. And we were challenged to have goals in three categories: Big, Scary, and Fun.

Do something BIG: Something that is difficult and maybe a bit tedious to achieve. Hear God’s call to save yourself and the world, if you will.

Do something SCARY: Something you really want to do, but which makes you quake in your boots every time you think of actually doing it. Hear God’s assurance that God will be with you.

Do something FUN: Something you want to do just because you’ll enjoy doing it. Hear God’s promise that life will be abundant and full of blessing.

It seems to me that these are wise criteria for goal setting. If you manage to set one goal in each category, I can all but guarantee you that you won’t end up heading down the road to The Same Old Same Old, but rather down the road to A Better Life.

And I’ll give you one last piece of wisdom I picked up, through experience, this past November: Tell someone about your goals, and if possible, gather companions about you who are going the same way.

So right now, I’m going to put the “tell someone” part into practice, and tell you that for the coming year, my “big” goal will be to lose one pound per week on average, or fifty-two pounds.

My “scary” goal for the coming year is to not only finish another novel, but to prepare it for submission to agents and publishers, and, once prepared, to submit it. (The submitting, and possible rejection, is the scary part, in case you were wondering…)

And my “fun” goal for the coming year is to go to New York next November to see Cate Blanchett in A Streetcar Named Desire. :)

I hope that this coming week, you’ll think about big, scary and fun goals. I hope you’ll listen for God calling you to take your place at the banquet, both as server and feaster. I hope that you’ll find the energy to listen to that calling.

And this time next year, I hope we’ll be able to compare notes and say, “What do you know? I did it!”

Amen.

Alpha Echo

That was great! I agree completely. Perhaps I will edit my goals to match your Big/Scary/Fun ideas:

BIG - Well, I have two actually. Run a 10k and find a church.

SCARY - I've joined a meet up group that meets to try outdoor adventures. They haven't met yet since I joined, but my goal is to try something with them when they do. Rock climbing, white water rafting...whatever it is. I want to try new things, go outside my box, and meet new people while I'm doing it. Oh and keep writing and submitting. The submitting part as you said is the hard part.

FUN - Um, hmmm...I think most of my goals fit into BIG or SCARY. I need to think about this one.

I don't make resolutions because it seems silly to set myself up for the perpetual failure of such things because so many things out totally out of my immediate control.

Instead, I look at my intentions--what do I want to work on in the next year?

The things I intend to work on in 2009 are: my writing process, completing a book again (it's been 8 years since I've been serious about doing this), study the market for submitting something (haven't done this in about 7 years--things are bound to have changed), work on improving my credit score and handling my finances, not killing assorting people when they irk the snot out of me, being more on the ball at work.

That's more than enough and ANY improvement/understanding in an area is an auto-win for me.

White water rafting is fun, too. The best spot, if you can overcome your fear, is right at the front of the raft. Oh, and if they let you jump off the raft and float down beside the raft, by all means, do it!

Been there, done that, and would love to do it again!

I'm going to write every day. In 2008 I set myself a goal of a quarter of a million words; have done way over that, so the amount is not the problem. Scheduling is. I haven't respected my writing enough by making it a priority.

Also I'm going to find an agent. No jokes, no smileys; I'm serious. If I feel embarrassed or ridiculous, well, it's no more embarrassing or ridiculous than the next man getting an agent.

And I'll make a serious attempt to not leave myself at the end of 2009 with any feelings of regret.

Well, for me the list is long. However there are a few that I will list here. Who knows, maybe listing them in a public forum will help me to achieve them.....LOL.... To all of you making resolutions, I hope you are all successful.

1. To break out into freelancing more and make a real living at it.
2. To get my business Scott Industries, off the ground and making money.
3. To be alot more organized and keep my office cleaner, alot cleaner
4. To take my wife on a nice vacation that we can afford and have a good time.
5. To make amends with my brother.

Like was said up there, the list is actually alot longer but.. ya'll get the idea. Happy New Year to all of you all.

To me resolutions are goals and achievements. So with that in mind:

1. Rewrite my novel the way it should be written with God's help

2. Find a great agent interested in my work

3. Publish aforementioned novel

4. Start the next novel in the series

5. Get out of debt/ stay out of debt

6. Help everyone I can (already doing that but feel I can do more)

7. Finish remodeling my home

8. Most importantly - grow closer to God and become more of what He's made me to be

( I might add more later, but these are off the top of my head and all doable.)

Also, the Mayan Calander only went to 2012. Just the same, I think I'll plan a trip to another Universe before then..lol..Or, as one archaeologist put it:

"Did it ever occur to anyone that they might have run out of room on the damn rock?"

I only have one "real" resolution. That's to turn my horses into a profitable venture. I have lovely little Caspian horses (only 40-44 inches high at the shoulder) and I'm beginning to host Pony Petting Parties. My first one--sort of a trial run--was for my daughter's second birthday. The kids loved it, and two of the moms asked to be put on a waiting list, so I think I have a good shot of making a go of this one. :)

As for my other resolutions, I'm resolving to make more time for the things I enjoy. This includes:
*More dancing
*More time with the horses
*Read at least one book by each of the following authors: Terry Pratchett, Donald Westlake, Steven Brust.
*Keep at least 75% of my garden alive (including the plants that are currently nothing more than little seed packets).

But not specific! How much weight? What sort of job? Reconnect how?

Goals, people; not wishes!

Get specific!

scarletpeaches, motivation guru.



I have specific goals. I just didn't want to go into detail. Didn't think anyone would care lol. But thanks?

My main resolution is to write at least 1000 words per day, even if some of them have to be scribbled in my notebook rather than on the computer. So far it's working out well.

And my flat is never allowed to get to the state it's been in over the past year ever again, once I'm finished renovating and tidying up.
