I’m ready to move forward in this new year. Middle of last year, I wasn’t sure I could. 2015 brought too much loss, too little good health, too much indecision, and not enough order.
I bet many of you could say the same. It’s nice to have a fresh start, choose a new road, take a decided leap, or just leave the past behind. I think January was invented so we could have a marker, a reset, a deadline for change.
I’m taking a new road this year – but strangely it’s one I started to take last year. I turned back. I still don’t know if it was a decision thrust upon me or if I just chickened out.
It doesn’t matter, because God turns all things into good if we let Him.
I will publish my first novel this year. I tremble just typing the words. Sure, I’m committed now, but what if things go wrong again? What if I chicken out? What if someone whose opinion I value says it’s not good?
Again, it doesn’t matter, because God turns all things into good if we let Him.
This story is important, even if I haven’t told it excellently. It’s relevant for what our world is going through these days. But I think it’s good, and I must put one foot in front of the other and follow the road I know I was meant to travel. I don’t want to come to the end of this year and realize I turned back again.
My publication target date is end of March. I hope you will watch for more news about it – I’ll let you know as things move along.
It’s a new road for me and I hope to follow it to the end.
What road are you contemplating? Will you take the first step? What is standing in your way?
