As someone who struggles with insomnia, my goal for 2019 is to get more, better-quality sleep! When I’m well-rested, I’m more able to be a joyful mom to my two kids and to energetically pursue my goals as a writer and small-business owner.

Like every other journalist, I am working on a screenplay that I expect to complete in 2019. Although only 300 of the 70,000 written each year are purchased, I can always say I have a project `in development’.

This year my goal is to become more others focused and to become very deliberate in finding ways to help people who may be hurting or in need, specifically in our schools but also in the community.

My wish for 2019 is health for my entire family. Physical, mental, and spiritual strength is at the core of happiness. When happy, all that is happening in the world is more tolerable!

I will embrace pressing into discomfort because I know I will thank myself for it in 2020.

I choose to be positive and look forward…every day has gifts if you open your eyes!
