With a full-time business, a toddler and a new baby due any day, it can be hard to envision finding any time for myself and my creative life. No excuses! Where there is a will, there is a way. I WILL make art! I will submit my art to at least two magazines/challenges this year (beginning today). I will carve out some art/creative time every two weeks, minimum. I will post some new art on my blog at least once a month. I will be more organized and efficient in my business so that my creative goals are achievable time-wise. And I will be present in the moment – enjoying my art, enjoying my children and my family, enjoying my life – not just worrying about the next thing on my to-do list.
Time, action, and next direction: I made a goals journal last year – this year I will USE it. Once a month (be specific – the first Sunday of each month) I will review past goals and write down new ones so that I can keep my goals in focus. My husband and I will do this together so we can keep each other honest, accountable and motivated (it helps to have a partner!) I will set some short-term goals that I can achieve each month and some long-term, big-dream goals which I will then break down into practical steps and actually tackle. This will help me convert my dreams into realities.
I will DO. I will ACT. I will CREATE.
