I hope this is is the year of finding balance in my life. I'm not making any resolutions. nope! Who wants a list of stuff to feel guilty about for not doing?!
There are still things I hope to accomplish.
1. Continue to organize and update the place where I live. There are a few projects I started long ago that still need to be completed this century. There are also the new ones begun and not yet completed. (bookshelves/library room is a case in point)
2. Workout regularly. Maybe do yoga. Ride my bike.
3. Spend time with family.
4. Spend time with friends.
In December my girlfriends and I went to Waynesville to shop, have dinner, and just generally enjoy each other's company. This is one of our favorite booths inside an antique mall. We love how all the vintage dishware is arranged by color.
5. Do creative stuff. I've signed up for 2 Craftsy classes that will force me to use my sewing machine.
6. Grow more vegetables.
9. Play with kitties
10. Be still. Contemplate. Grow spiritually.
I was tempted to say do this or do that "more." But I just simply wish to do these things. Will it be more? Does it matter? The point is to consciously spend time doing those things that are meaningful to me.
My Blogging Business Artisans team sets forth a new Challenge every month. The purpose is to encourage us to explore our creativity, to stretch our imaginations. Perhaps we are re-working something we've done in the past or still do. Perhaps we're making something entirely new. For the month of January we considered our goals for the upcoming year.
(Blogger is being most persnickety as I write this. I hope this post shows up with all its photos. sigh.)
