2013 is off to a great start! I love a new year, even with the new challenges I will be faced with there is also the prospect of new experiences, new passions, new relationships and that is utterly exciting to me. I am not much of a New Year’s resolution kind of gal, I prefer to just make a broad declaration to myself for the next year to push myself further, to face the fears and to explore the world one day at a time.
This past year I was faced with many challenges but it was a year bursting full of life lessons I needed to learn in order to rise to the challenges I am bound to experience in 2013. In 2012 I was asked to co-author a series of books, I was eager to set out on this excursion as writing is a passion of mine but I also new this would be a challenge to face. It is extremely difficult for me to vocalize my feelings and experiences to the public as I never shared my writing before. I gave myself the opportunity to learn this and it is something I will continue to learn as we embark on 2013 and three additional books and continued blogs.
The response to Shy Town Girls has been amazing, and on behalf of STG a declaration that in 2013 we will continue to be open about ourselves, our writing process and exposed in our stories about our viewpoints, loves and awkward life lessons learned.
So whether you choose to make a New Year’s resolution or just a declaration to better yourself, I wish you a year full of growth, love and fears faced.
