I am ready for you. I want to really LIVE my life this year. I have thought about having a "word" of the year ala Ali Edwards but I don't want to focus too much on one word. I need to work towards more than that this year. I want to spread my wings again.
I have quietly been scouring the internet. Noticing blogs and blog themes that inspire me. Noticing how some bloggers are really amazing writers and how certain post touch my soul and make me tear up.
Sometime ago I lost what it was I was trying to be here. So I look to start again...
This time I will write and post for myself. I will make lists. I will start new projects. I will post what inspires me. I will write from my heart because that is all i know how to do. I found when I stopped doing that, when I censored myself here and didn't allow myself to speak freely, I had nothing to say.
Which just isn't me at all.
So I start with a list to myself of things I'd like to do. Things that I think will help me enjoy life a little more.
PURGE - closets, craft supplies, books shelves and kitchen cabinets. We live in such a tiny space I need to let go of what I don't need or use. I hold on to things for sentimental value often when there is a memory I can hold onto instead. I started this yesterday and dropped off 4 bags of clothes and shoes to goodwill. It felt GREAT to let it go!
CRAFT - I miss making things. I want to play with my supplies and make little silly things for my friends and family.
READ - I love reading. I never do it anymore. I have rows of new, unread books that are collecting dust. I can barely even finish a magazine anymore. I need to slow down and enjoy reading again.
WRITE MORE - In my journal, on my blog. cards, letters all of it.
That's enough for now. Baby steps.
