The Year of Perfect Vision: 2020

By Maritza Martinez Mejia  @luzdelmes

When people hear they have a 20/20 vision, they understand that they have a perfect vision. They pride themselves and reassure you that they don't have to wear glasses or contact lenses.

Unfortunately a 20/20 vision does not mean having a "perfect vision". When the optometrist tells you that you have "20/20 vision", he/she is referring to the visual acuity, which is the clarity or sharpness of your vision. This number indicates that you can see objects clearly at a distance of 20 feet, compared to others.

Don’t worry! We can make that concept 2020: The year of the perfect vision a reality.
December is usually a month to evaluate the year to end and make the resolutions for the coming year. As a writer, I focus on a word of "Resolution" not only as my word to focus to write, but a value I want to add to improve my life. I write to inspire others and myself to be a better person.

Have you thought about what value would you like to add in the New Year? I invite you to think about A VALUE that you want to add to your writing life. It's not hard!

First, let's start with a grateful heart by recognizing the achievements, efforts, surprises from last year. It is important to start with gratitude and in a positive way. Write it down!

Second, let's think about how to improve unfinished writings and the reason why we couldn't finish the project. The negative can be turned into a positive without judging or blaming anyone. From the challenges we can always learn something new. Add it to the list!

Finally, after analyzing and writing down, the first and second steps mentioned above, it is time to think about what I need to become a better writer. What is the VALUE you want to add to your life and writing career?  Let's make 2020: the year of the perfect vision.

I invite you to read my poems, reflections and activities for FREE to inspire you to find your word of Resolution. Please visit:
