    This decade was a disaster for me. My wife deciding to leave me for good destroyed my family. Now divorced with my 2 kids I have half the time, I’m trying to pick up the pieces of my life. The whole experience has left me full of anxiety and depression. The next ten years I have a choice to make. Do I make the best of my life, or do I choose to wallow in my despair and die? I got one shot at life, and I want to make the best of it. By the end of the decade I want to have several manuscripts written by then. How many? At least ten, that’s a good number I think. I also want to be able to have the ability to save my money, and have a future for my kids. I choose to embrace my introverted self and accept who I am. It is time for me to live courageously.

      I’m sorry you’ve had it so rough! But you’re right, it’s time for you to live courageously and make a stand for yourself. Like you said, you’ve got one shot at life, and it’s up to you to make the best of it. I think your manuscript goal is great! You’ll get that knocked out in no time and get them published!

      Even though you don’t get to see your kids all the time, cherish the time you do have with them, make them feel special and loved. My parents got divorced when I was 8, and it seemed like they just fought over us, not really thinking about how we felt through it all. Your kids love you, and I think it’s great you want to give them a good future! Hang in there, the 20’s is going to be your decade!


    Hi Kaitlyn,
    I loved your blog. It was so genuine and positive. I can’t wait to hear more from you as your writing unfolds.
    I write as well and have completed two novels of a series. Currently, they are being polished in preparation for next steps.
    I love to write and have devoted time and effort developing my craft which I will continue to do.
    What is really important to me over the next few years is continuing my Mindfulness practice and extending it to my community. So many people are angry, sad, and lonely. We don’t have to be this way and I would like to be a part of the reconnection within my community. That is my goal for the coming decade.

      That’s awesome you’ve got those two novels complete! That’s a huge accomplishment!

      Mindfulness is very important. I spent a lot of time in therapy learning to be more mindful and it’s helped me out immensely. I love your goals for the next coming years, and wish you the best! Happy New Year!
