Well, another calendar year has turned the page and it’s now 2013. This for me embodies the ‘Year of the Witch,’ in more ways than just being denoted by a 13. There is so much going for this year and it’s difficult to describe exactly why that is. There just seems to be more on the horizon than in years past.
So, here is a breakdown on what the year promises to bring so far!
I have two writing projects that I am working concurrently on. One has been on the back burner for quite sometime, but I have the sudden urge to bring it to fruition. So, I’m working on getting it ready to go. The second is a pretty new idea and it’s something I hope to be able to offer on the website soon.
I’ve had one article published in the Magical Almanac with Llewellyn Worldwide for 2013 and I will have another one for 2014! So, I’ll keep writing smaller things as well.
Not to mention my duties as editor for, The Correllian Times. That takes up a good chunk of time, but it’s something that I enjoy.
I’ve also have started a discussion group with my good friend, Ellen Dugan. It’s going to be on a monthly basis out in St. Charles, MO. We’re also tossing a couple of other collaborative ideas around for later in the year. It’s been a lot of fun to just bounce ideas off of one another and put our love of community out there for others.
Of course, this summer there will be St. Louis Pagan Picnic, which will be on June 8th & 9th! I’ll be there as usual. There are a lot of great workshops and activities planned.
It may seem like a lot, but just like with everything else I try to take it one thing at a time. That way I don’t get too overwhelmed!
In fact, I recently had a conversation with a friend about that very topic and she was having a hard time with the changes she was wanting to implement for the year. I told her that the best thing she could do was to make one change now. Work on that change until it becomes a habit and then add another. All the small changes will eventually add up to a large change. Once that occurs you’ll be able to look back and appreciate all the hard work that it took to get there.
The reason most people’s New Year’s Resolutions fail is that they try to take on too much at once. If you break it down into smaller parts, you’re more likely to succeed. I know it’s a philosophy that I try to implement into my own life. It’s allowed me to take part in a great many projects and to expand my writing as well. Don’t let anyone discourage you from accomplishing your dreams, even if that person is yourself!
