The Beginning of a Very Good Year

It’s the beginning of a new year – another fresh start. What will this year hold in store for you? Actually, a better question would be, “Have you decided what you will experience this year?” 

Now, don’t get me wrong. The Rolling Stones were correct when they sang, “You can’t always get what you want.” Just because we say  what we want or even put it in writing, doesn’t mean it’s going to happen. Only about 8% of the people who set New Year’s Resolutions achieve them. Should we even bother?

I believe the answer to that question is,  “Yes, we should.” You see, making a DECISION, is very powerful. It’s the bridge between our thoughts and our actions.  I’ve heard it said that “most people are about as happy as they decide to be. And …


Yes, I’ve decided, and you can too! This will be a very good year. I’ve already put several important goals in writing, and have decided to take the steps that should result in their achievement. I understand things will happen that are outside of my control, and I’m okay with that.

Author: Anita Louise Romance

My husband, Mike, comes from a large and loving family of nine children, and they were the inspiration for the Adler Series. All of my books center around the important people in every woman’s life – romantic relationships, family, and friends. I do my best to take readers on an emotional journey as they observe how the characters in my stories think and feel. It is my hope that while reading, hearts will be touched, funny-bones will be tickled, and overall, lovers of romance will be uplifted and inspired. I have always been an avid reader of love stories, and my passion for romance found another outlet when I discovered how much fun it was to write about my own smart and sexy heroes and heroines. I am also an ardent and devoted student of personal development. Weaving the life changing principles that guided me to the love of my life and to a happy marriage is an important aspect in each of my novels. . Hope you enjoy getting to know all the Adlers as much and I'm enjoying them. Please look for me on Amazon and other popular sites. Also, it would be appreciated very much if you would please share your feedback with me by posting your review.
