The Recovering Pessimist

Helping pessimists see the bright side of life without losing their "half empty" roots.

Finish What You Start in 2018


The Recovering Pessimist: Finish What You Start in 2018 -- This year's theme was inspired by a stack of books that I failed to finish. After being annoyed with myself, I decided that I was no longer going to start things and not finishing them. This year will be the year that I follow through to the end. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistThe inspiration for this year’s theme derived from the stack of (at least 6) books that I’ve purchased throughout 2017 and either never started them or started them and never finished them. Oh, and the countless projects that I’ve started (or planned) and never finished them (or execute them). I’m legit disappointed in myself.



With inspiration on deck, creating the theme was as simple as moving some words around. What I came up with was this:


It’s long overdue. It would be delusional for me to continue to think that I can accomplish goals when I have a tendency to leave things unfinished. This year, I’m hellbent on starting, finishing, and repeat. No more half-assing.

Do you have a theme/mantra for 2018? I would love to hear about it.

  1. You got this, friend! I can’t wait to see all you accomplish! <3

  2. I do not have a mantra for this year, however, this absolutely sounds like a great one to adopt as my own so thank you so much 🙂
