A Happy New Year to you!
I am not one for news years resolutions. As soon as I make them I set myself up for failure but I always have a few wishes for myself for a new year and this year is different in only one way. I am making these airy fairy ‘wishes’ more concrete – they are plans/aims/goals. Nothing too difficult, nothing impossible and nothing really new. They are just things to work on and things to look forward too!
I plan to dream more, make more art, re-discover painting, exhibit more.
I plan to connect more with present friends, re-connect with neglected ones.
I plan to be a better daughter, wife, friend, artist.
I plan to be healthy, have more fun, live in the moment.
I plan to spend less time on the computer and more time doing.
I plan to carry on being a thinker and dreamer but to also not forget to live, be and do and see. Oh and breathe. Taking time to breathe is always good.
I plan to spend more time in the studio and push my work in new and unexpected ways.
I am sure there are a whole lot more hopes and wishes for 2011 but for now I am going to get up to the studio! Whilst I am recovering from my treatment I am mixing napping with new work beginnings and taking some time to work on some more personal projects like making myself a new dress. In the past I have found it so incredibly difficult to put time aside to just work on things for myself and this is another plan for 2011!
I do hope that this year is a great one for you and that your own plans are forming and becoming reality!
