I know I’m late, but happy new year everyone!
Last year, while everyone else was talking about their resolutions and/or plans for the year, I kind of let New Years quietly slip by. I was in the middle of a serious writing funk and couldn’t come up with anything retrospective or profound. Eventually, I wrote this, vowing not to give up writing.
But the truth is that I quite like the beginnings of a new year. It’s like holding a new book with blank pages, full of possibilities and unwritten stories… a whole year ahead of you to discover and improve and fill the pages with your own tales.
This year, I created this little hand-lettered collage of words and goals for the new year (that I bet we can all keep!). This year may see some changes (to be shared soon, hopefully!) and some of my resolutions reflect that. My resolution to continue writing still holds, along with the added one of blossoming my artistic endeavors. I hope to get rid of some bad habits (like staying up way too late… like now, ahem) and cultivate healthier ones. And I’m looking forward to a new year full of travel, adventures, reading, and of course, eating! But mainly, this year, I just want to continue learning and exploring, both the world around me and the potential inside of me.
So Happy 2016 everyone! Let’s go write some stories!
What are your goals for 2016?
