Every January, the world hits reset, and starts again with new ambition. I am renewed and motivated by this thought, as trite as it is sometimes. My resolutions aren’t hard and fast, but I do think positive thoughts can bring about positive change.
I’m resolving to write, share, or journal every day. It is cathartic, it is inspiring, it is a way for me to keep on pace, and track success. I kept a Vlog for my 90 day challenge from May to August last year, so I think I will pick that back up. I ended up losing 32 pounds and developing an exercise habit- something I never would have imagined doing without the accountability of my vlogging project. It was quite far out of my comfort zone, and I think it was a great way to grow.
I don’t know how this will work with the first one, but I want to spend less time watching screens. My daughter is such a vibrant, ornery, brilliant, little creature. I fall in love every single day. If I spend too much time working or facebooking, I feel guilty. Having some time off over the holidays always gives me valuable perspective.
More water. Less coffee.
Organize. More. Always. Never stop trying. My studio is a disaster. Contemplating seeking professional help.
And, to get a head start on that first resolution- I drew and watercolored this little beauty for an old friend around Christmas. It brings a lot of the things I love together, so I am considering adding it to my Etsy shop. It was a really fun project, hoping for more like this in 2014!
I have been hoarding blog posts, always planning to get to it when I can (during nap time), but never actually doing it. I’ll see about those this week. Good luck with your resolutions, hopefully this time next year, we all have a whole year of proud change!
