It's 2016, a new year......
I was trying to decide if I should post anything about my expectations, my goals, my hopes in the new year. I was really leaning towards not doing it.
I start out with so much hope, promise, and determination, only to let myself down.
I hate that.
And what is this blog anyways, I can't decide. I don't really know what my purpose is.
And because of that it is hard to make goals.
But then I found that quote and I felt encouraged.
So I decided to continue on.......
There is one thing that is different.
I am attempting to not be so gung-ho, guns a blazing, full monty about everything.
The struggle is real.
So for example, whenever I get on a workout kick, I don't slowly begin to do so. I start week 1, working out 5 days a week, strength training 3 days a week, and stretching daily. When I don't keep this up, I get disgusted and things go bad quickly. My goal now is to slowly add workouts to my life, allowing myself to create to new habits naturally. What a concept, huh? My goal has also changed from losing weight, to just being my healthiest self.
I started this year out by not signing up for every photography class I could find, and not putting every creative idea I had into practice. On days that I struggle with letting life get in the way of creativity, I am attempting to try things in blocks of time. So one hour for cleaning, one hour for reading, one hour for messing around, and one hour for painting etc. I have liked it so far.
I plan to attempt to designate days to certain tasks, Monday photography, Tuesdays blogging, Wednesday art, Thursday lettering. Of course I can take photos when ever I want to, but designating a day might help me to follow through with projects, regrouping, social media, and or just making time to jump into something bigger.
Several things that I read have said how important it is to share your practice, your work, your art on your blog or other social media. I guess.......I'm gonna give that a try. It is very uncomfortable for me, but then I think why should it be?
It is what it is.
