Resolutions That Stick

I have never been one to make New Year's resolutions. This year is different. I've had so many things on my mind for the past 6 months or so. From things that I need to check off my to-do list to dreams and aspirations that I want to accomplish some day. Well I want some day to be in 2013.

Working forty (+) hours a week has really put a damper on my "creative time." When I get home every day, I just want to grab some dinner, kick up my feet and relax. I'm rarely ever in the mood to sit down and just make art. And I hate that. It's just so hard to switch from working on the left side of my brain to working on the right side at the end of the day. I have had tons of ideas floating around in my head of things I want to create. Maybe my brain is just overwhelming me. It's like I have so many ideas that I don't even know where to start. Do you know what I mean? Or is that just me?

2013 is when my ideas are going to reach fruition. I've always wanted my art and the things I create to be a source of income for us so hopefully this will be the year it happens (even if it's just something I do on the side). I'm entering the new year with a renewed sense of creativity and motivation and I am so excited about what's to come.

More than anything in the coming year, I want to experience a relationship with my Savior like never before. I want to strive to be the daughter, wife, sister and friend He created me to be. I want to spend time with Him daily and lean on Him to renew and refresh me each morning. I want to be more consumed with MY Creator than the things I create. God gave me artistic gifts and I want to use them for His glory.

2013 is going to be a great year. I've loved documenting our life and thoughts through this blog. I've loved meeting new blog friends, reading your thoughts, taking your advice and learning so many new things. Hopefully things will just get better and better! Life is great.

Happy New Year!

How funny that we are a tad opposite when it comes to this! I normally make resolutions every year, but this year was different - It was like I knew in my head what I wanted to do this year but I didn't actually sit down and think of any - ha! Found your from the Followers to Friends link up and I am loving your blog (especially the title) - it's always nice to make a good Christian friend!

I'm the same way with my art and work... it's hard to find a balance.. I've prayed and planned and I I'm jumping in head first this year. Here's to an amazing 2013 for both of us :)

I just love your goals. Work life balance is hard but it's important to be you in all of it.. If that makes sense. :)

I agree with you- when you work 40 hours a week it is hard to feel like doing anything! I literally come home from work and just sit on the couch and stare. One day I would love to be able to work part time and be creative with that extra 20 hours a week. One day...I just found your blog and have enjoyed getting to know you better. Hope you don't mind if I follow along!
