New Month, New Goals?

9781440557286February 7th.  The crowds at the gym are fading out.  The daily specials at the grocery store are wings and potato chips. And the New Year resolutions have all gone by the wayside.

Or have they?

Just because January didn’t go your way, doesn’t mean its time to give up. Now’s the time to dig in, find that second wind, and find a way to make forward progress on your goals.

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the idea of starting over.  Whether it be on your resolutions, or, like Barb, my heroine in The Bull Rider’s Manager, maybe its a complete do over for your life.  Barb’s seen herself as the career woman.  That’s where she was successful.  Her love life, well that had always been a disaster. Now, she’s done something foolish again.

Trying to come back from life’s trials takes a lot of determination, dedication, and luck.  I guess, I’m a lot like Barb.  As a woman, I don’t know my own strength.  But I’m learning.

So what have you let slide this last month?  What are you recommitting to today?

I’m back on the eating healthy path.  Maybe I’ll see you there?


THE BULL RIDER’S MANAGER – available at Amazon/BN/and where ever fine digital books are sold…

Barb Carico’s all about business.  Now that her best friend tied the knot with Barb’s new business partner, she’s busier than ever. Managing Jesse Sullivan’s career and public persona can be a handful. Add in an aging mother who goes through home health nurses like candy, Barb’s hanging on the edge.

Her one salvation?  Hunter Martin, prodigal son of Martin Family Dairy and, hopefully, Jesse’s next sponsor. After his brother’s death, Hunter’s become an instant dad to his seven-year-old niece.  For Hunter, the rodeo weekend with Barb is the perfect excuse to relax.

When their dinner turns into a quick trip to a Vegas wedding chapel, both Barb and Hunter agree their nuptials were a mistake Barb doesn’t know anything about being a wife or mother but she needs one favor.  A favor she’ll trade her lifestyle, independence, and even risk her heart to make come true.

    • Thx RT. How are your goals doing? I know you’re busy with a release. Good luck and many sales.

  2. You can never go wrong with healthy eating, Lynn. Kudos to you!

  3. So right. I think February should be the month to contemplate the future. Once the dust settles from the holidays, it’s easier to think about what’s next.BTW- Love the intro for Bull Rider’s Manager.

    • So true, but I think January is traditional so you can get the sticker shock from what you spent on the holidays. LOL

      Thanks for stopping in.

  4. Really fabulous post, Lynn!
