Pins and Posts of 2012

New Year's Day. Hmmm. This is probably a good time to reflect on the lessons of 2012 and make resolutions for a happy, healthy, prosperous 2013. Instead, here are some of my favorite posts on Facebook and Pinterest.

Writers get this.

Someone also wrote: "Writer's block is when our imaginary friends stop talking to us." Hate it when that happens.

I thought this inspiring and hereby resolve to step outside my comfort zone more often in 2013, to go places I've never been and try new things. Zip lining, anyone?

A 86 year old woman once told me she felt 35 inside. She wore stylish clothes, traveled, had lots of friends of all ages. This made me think of her and what I learned from the way she lived her life.
Mystery solved:

 Another great one for writers and readers. This week I spent many hours in Paris, the British Virgin Islands and Wyoming without ever getting on a plane.

And this was just so delightful, I had to share. Anyone who has ever had a Lab or known one, knows it is just dead on!!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2013! Anyone have resolutions, thoughts or humor to share?

I love all the Facebook/Pinterest posts you shared, Lark, but two, in particular, "speak" to me.

The first is the "Live your life and forget your age" post. I've made strides in that direction. Most days, I feel 35. On the bad ones, I'm 38.

I relate to the "My life is so much more interesting inside my head." We're lucky as writers to live multiple lives via our characters.

Re the writer's block post: The voices never stopped talking to me, but I stopped listening. I'm listening now and have high hopes for 2013.

happy New Year!

Found something yesterday on FB that I didn't 'share' and just spent half an hour going through all the thousands of posts since to find it again!

"An Arrow Can Only Be Shot By Pulling It Backward. So When Life Is Dragging You Back With Difficulties It Means That It's Going To Launch You Into Something Great. So Just Focus And Keep Aiming.

And, yes, I've just 'shared' it so it shows up on my page!

Happy New Year!

Excellent quote, Sarah! Reminds me of the quote, "When life closes a door, it opens a window." Not always easy to believe when times get hard. Hopefully 2013 will be the year it happens for us all!
