This month is a renewal month for many of us, so on Wednesdays we’re going to talk about goals of all sorts. Today the Wickeds weigh in on their fun goals for 2018!
Jessie: I am planning to start a podcast with one of my sons. It is an entirely new arena for me and I am really looking forward to it! We already have a theme, a name and some topics planned so I look forward to getting it underway before the year is out.
Edith: My goal is to spend regular time with my cherished young friends, Miss B and Mr. J. Because nothing is more fun than laughing with children (who, without asking my permission, are rapidly getting older, and threatening to get taller than me month by month).
Liz: I’m going to plan a trip this year – somewhere I want to go, when I feel like going. Usually I plan around other people, which often means my plans are edited or cancelled altogether. This year, I’m doing something for myself.
Julie: I am going to paint, with water colors. I have heretofore no known skills as a visual artist, but I have a niece who is very talented, and she’s inspiring me to try and develop my skills. I’ve realized over the years that many artistic or craft endeavors take practice, and that by quitting too soon I am short changing myself. Looking forward to exploring this side of myself.
Barb: Usually I do set goals in January, which is both the new year and my birthday month. But this year I have both a book and a novella due February 1–so I am going to kick the can down the road a little. 2017 was a busy year for me. I told at least half a dozen people, “Now that I’m in Maine, let’s get together for lunch (coffee, dinner, drinks, dessert).” I didn’t do it. Not a one. So this year, I am definitely doing that.
Sherry: My goal is much like Barb’s. I want to spend more time with friends going on adventures. My husband just took a class for his job that said laughter releases the same endorphins as running. So I plan on laughing a lot this year!
And you, dear readers, what is your fun goal for 2018?
