I've never been one for new years resolutions but I'm a big believer in setting goals in order to stay focused. (Is that the similar?)
The last couple of years I wasn't able to accomplish my goals - I worked hard for a promotion that went to someone else, worked hard for people set in their ways and somewhat accomplished expanding my designer wardrobe (I wish I was kidding on that one). Funny enough, when I lost my 9-5 job, that's when everything became clear.
I took classes to explore printmaking, focused on my art and began producing accessories that I really love to make and am proud of. Most importantly, I developed a stronger bond with my husband, friends and family.
Of course I have artistic goals in mind but otherwise, I can't wait to see what the new year will bring. Over planning can be worse than not having a plan.
I'll end this post with a nice quote from this morning's newspaper -
"As you think, so shall you become." - Bruce Lee
Happy New Year everyone. : )
