2019 Goal #1

Put things away. Don’t let clutter build up. Tidy as you go so you don’t have to dig yourself out of a mountain of chaos. (Fingers crossed, right?)

2019 Goal #2

Participate in life outside of my studio. (I’m an introvert. I love a good hibernation.) Get thy butt out of the house.

2019 Goal #3

Take the time to get to know myself again. Nurture Art Brain. Allow creativity to be the center of my lifestyle. Make tons of art.

Is there really a difference between a New Year’s Resolution and a goal? I’m not sure it really matters but I think there is. Goals feel less restrictive, more like a marathon. Where with resolutions it feels like police will show up the second I break it. This year is going to be a no drama llama year. 

So I set goals. Goal #1 + #2 up above are really all up to me. Unfortunately I have yet to find cleaning fairies (and if you have them, mail them to me) and because of my cancer last year I spent a LOT of time in the house. It was a necessity but this year I am going to make an effort to squash my introvert and venture out more. 

Goal #3 is a little scary to me. Mostly because I feel very changed from my cancer experience last year. I feel as if I have to get to know myself again. And that includes Art Brain. She has been well neglected and I have massive guilt about it. I want her to thrive and at the moment she is just hanging about kind of waiting her turn.

I’ve been thinking a lot about how I can jumpstart my creative process again. I’m pretty independent but this time? This time I feel quite raw and like I need some support.

Jane Dunnewold is someone I respect immensely and feel a connection to so I’m turning to her to help guide me on Goal #3. She developed a program called Creative Strength Training just for this purpose – to dig deep and to concentrate on your creative core. Count. Me. In.

Wanna join me? The online class begins on March 1 so there’s plenty of time before it starts, don’t have to feel overwhelmed with tons of things starting at day one of this year. I’m excited to interact with my tribe (which includes you) and I’d love to see you over there. If you’re still not sure if it’s for you, watch the video below. See you there! 🙂
