Insanity is doing the same thing over again and expecting different results

Okay, January is over, and I’m wondering how many made new years resolutions and if you’re having any luck. One of mine was go blog more often, but that hasn’t gone so well. In my defense, I have been fighting the “crud” throughout most of January, so I’ve fallen behind on just about…everything. Except eating, of course.

I did better than most years as far as goal-setting goes. I made a list. My daughter would be so proud. I even went so far as to make plans on how to execute and to obtain my goals.  I did this because over the years, I’ve wanted to make changes-and a few have occurred, but those happened because of dumb luck as opposed to anything I did.

I decided to map out a strategy and write it down because it holds me accountable. Now I’m forever a procrastinator, especially in doing things I don’t want to do, and believe me this habit has been difficult to overcome, but I’m trying. One baby step at a time.

How about you? What is your approach for making changes in your life?shadow-of-love-sonia-richard


About Debra Jupe

Hi, I’m Debra and I write romantic/suspense novels, with a bit of steam and a lot of fun. Creating stories is my passion. My favorite days are when I can tune out the universe, huddle over my laptop, and let my imagination go wild. More of my loves My kids-I am the proud mom of two. Son, Stephen and daughter, Hannah. I’m also a proud mother-in-law to Astrid and Ryan. I’m a huge animal lover and am “mom” to a houseful of adopted fur-babies. Animals know, when they show up at my house, they have a forever home. Texas-I’m a lifetime Texan. Born in Waco, I grew up in a small town, south of the city. In my early 20’s, I left and lived in different areas within the state. Twenty-eight years later, I happily returned home. I hope to have one more move in me. My dream is to live by the ocean, sit on the deck with a glass of wine and write. Bucket List accomplishments-In my 40’s, I did something I’d always wanted to do, which was return to school and further my education. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. My day job is working in the education system, teaching special needs children. Inspiration-Growing plants in my flower beds, painting, photography, travel (love the beach), I was born to shop-now if I just had the money, and I can be easily bribed with a tasty meal of Mexican food. Oh yeah, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. Writing-I received my first publishing contract with The Wild Rose Press in 2013, and my initial release debuted in September the same year. I’m an active member of the Central Texas Romance Writers of America Chapter, and I serve as secretary of the group., Follow me on twitter @AuthorDebraJupe Keep up with the latest updates by liking my Facebook page or on my Facebook page Author Debra Jupe
