Happy New Year and A Few Resolutions



It’s that time of year again. When we say goodbye to this year and hello to the next one. Happy New Year all!

I’m a firm believer in telling the universe what you want. It solidifies it in my mind. And who knows, she just might be listening. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So here are my resolutions for 2013:

  1. Lose 35 lbs and keep it off.
  2. Exercise 4-5 days per week.
  3. Follow a low-carb eating regimen.
  4. Self-publish my novel, The Six Train to Wisconsin.
  5. Find a full-time job and move back to a major or minor city.
  6. Submit my third manuscript to agents and publishers.

  1. Good luck to you Kourtney in all your New Years Resolutions.. I hope you succeed in ALL of them..
    Wishing you a Bright New Year for 2013 and I hope it brings much Happiness and Joy your way…
    Hugs Sue Dreamwalker


  2. Always impressed by the way to distill things down to the basics – that’s a real skill. People always say: “If you can’t write it down on something the size of a business card, you don’t have a clear idea.”
    Looks like you’ve got a guide mapped out for this year (and it does help to write down specifics)
    Hope the travel through the new year is wildly wonderful, full of smiles and great adventures ( and you find time to share them with us!)

    • Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL. At work we used to have to set clear, measurable goals. I think that filtered into my resolutions. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      I hope your year brings all that you want and need to you!

    Holy man! This is an insane list! I think if you accomplish two of these goals you will be golden.
    I clicked over from Victoria’s!

    • LOL. You should have seen last year’s. I cut back. Goals 1-3 all tie together. To get #1 I have to do 2&3. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hoping to get 4/5 done this year. Aw she’s awesome. Always enjoy her blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Happy New Year, Kourtney! May you reach all of your goals with healthy/happy gusto. ๐Ÿ™‚ If I can support in anyway, say the word.

    • Happy New Year August! Thanks. I feel more committed to a healthy lifestyle this year. I think I’m ready to make the hard choices. Thank you so much! I really appreciate that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m a believer in telling the universe what I want also, but I have a tendency to lose momentum. I’m going to do my very best not to get overwhelmed by Life and keep thinking positive thoughts.

    I think great things are headed your way in 2013. Get ready! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • From your lips to the universe’s ears. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Kathryn. Momentum is hard to keep. Especially in the face of rejection and disappointment. I have to take breaks from querying to salvage my soul. Otherwise, it would eat me alive. It’s okay to get down. Just as long as you find your way back to up again. ๐Ÿ™‚
