Happy New Year!
It has happened again, yes? This annual rolling around of a brand new start.
Did you take advantage of it? Did you need to take advantage of it?
I have been observing lately. I have been particularly drawn to those people who always have something in "the works". Whether it is art, a family activity, a social event, or personal improvement - I am surrounded by people who pack more in a day than I can fit in to a week.
I want to be like them.
I know that some of the people I admire are plagued with demons that I am not equipped to deal with (bipolar, scars from abuse, etc) and others have vices that carry them farther and longer than the average human ... and I don't want to have THAT part of their productive/artistic nature.
Do they always have to go hand-in-hand, though?
On a serious note, I will be sharing my New Years/New Start resolutions with you now:
In the year of 2014, I hereby resolve to buy more art. I also resolve to make some of my own.
I resolve to purchase or borrow more books - and read them sober (that makes a difference, you know). I also will write some words of my own.
I resolve to be recognize and act on my own extraordinariness. I resolve to honor yours.
Happy New Year/New Start to you. Much love!
