Inspire Me Thursday - New Year Resolutions

I have written my resolutions a little differently this year. Most years I make a list of things I want to achieve, but I decided not to make a to-do list this year. Instead, I am listing some words I want to use as a theme for the year. I couldn't choose one single word for the year so I chose many. With the words I have mainly focused on being a parent for the first time, organisation and savouring every moment of being a parent.

Life Savour / Spirit / Love / Friendship
Relationships Attention / Listen / Openness / Support
Art and Domestic Order / Confidence / Creativity / Growth

I also plan to start an art journal using mainly pen and ink. I'll use a little collage and watercolour when I want some colour and texture!

This is similar to what I did ... not laying down hardcore goals, but aspiration words, themes.

Merry New Year!

Thanks for the encouragement. So far its been fun. I like your list of words to use for projects for the new year. I think I might do the same. Good luck with your new identity as being a mom.. It's a wonderful thing.
