This year I pledge to live my life creatively.
I love doing creative things and for many years have shoved that urge to the back burner because of housework, cooking, errands, etc. Instead of ignoring my need to create, I have worked out a plan to budget time to work on creative projects along with all of the other things I need to do. I am excited to start working on projects I've been stockpiling for years. I'm even more excited that this is also going to help me make progress on some of the old resolutions I used to make.
I know it's early in the year, but so far I'm doing pretty well. I've set a very reasonable writing goal for myself and have made my goal each day. I've also made a list of the many craft projects I've been wanting to make and am going to work on one project each week. I've already found several classes I'm taking to learn some new things I've been wanting to try forever.
It's also keeping me off the couch and moving around. It keeps my hands to busy for mindless snacking. Most important, it has me feeling refreshed and excited to be making things again.
