Continuing the theme of planning for the New Year, (shocker to those who refer to me as a non-planner type C, rather than type A or B haha), I put together a little list of books I hope to read in 2014. Not because I am much of a planner, but because I aspire toward intentionality. You know how all those things you’d love to do/need to do/hope to do, often just don’t seem to happen unless you’re intentional about them? Yep, same here!

When putting these things down on paper etc., I actually like to think of my plans/dreams/goals as less of a list and more of a sparkly set of possibilities, in journal form — that way I can refer back & see just what it was I was dreaming of but haven’t gotten around to for so long that I may have forgotten whatever it was in the first place. We big dreamer types sometimes just need a little help keeping track of all our dreams 😉 We can also look back later and reminisce over/be thankful for something we did/read/said 12 months ago. 

 What works for all of us is as different as we are, but it’s fun to learn from each other and even be inspired by one another’s ideas.  So here is what I hope to read, learn from, and be inspired by in the upcoming year.  Some are books I’ve more recently had recommended to me and some are books I’ve been wanting to read for quite awhile.  But all are books I have read about & heard about, that I think could add value to my life, my writing, or my parenting.
