I love the freshness of the new year. It reminds me of going back to school, with new pencils, rulers, pens and best of all a fresh new lined writing book with no mistakes, corrections or red lines crossed through my words. Must try harder, must be neater, must pay attention, must write between the lines.
Lovely thing about being older is that I don’t have to write between the lines!! I can throw that ruler away, stray outside the lines - I can even draw my own and use the red pen to create my own words. Besides, as family historians we know we must constantly look outside the lines in order to move ahead with our research.
Bring out that fresh new genealogy writing book this year, but buy one without any lines and see where it leads you….
In my new writing book this year and written in red pen is:
- Me – I have a dream, but I would like to move it ahead from just the dream. Because it’s my dream, I seem to allow it to get pushed down the list, but my goal this year is to keep it at the top.
- Order amongst the chaos!! I cannot continue to save genealogy as paper, so I need to work on a digital remedy
- My own genealogy research.
I’ve purposefully kept my list short (not easy….but short!).
Dream big and write and research outside the lines.
~~and a very Happy New Year to you all!
