More Days Like This for 2009
I'm really struggling wtih coming up with a plan for the new year. I know I want all the usual things ie; healthier living, being kinder, taking more time with family, being a better housekeeper, employee,sister,daughter,mother,wife, fellow blogger, and friend (taking a moment for a breath) and not to mention.....ARTIST! It can be overwhelming at times can't it? How can I improve in all areas at once? That is where I mess up.....thinking such thoughts.
So, some how, I will have to get my mind in a relaxed state and be quiet for a while until clarity comes. Maybe I should take up meditation? Hee-hee, people that know me well will think that is funny.
Seriously though, I do think that more times like the beach scene here are important. So that is my number one resolution.
I also want to expand my horizons. I have begun the process of developing a creative instructional book. I'm keeping the subject matter private for now. Any help on that topic of getting such a book published (not self publishing)is appreciated.
I also want to take some classes in the art/creative world.
I want to help my daughter more with her art too. She has turned out to be quite the little artist. I don't like her subject matter so much as it is darker and scary stuff....but she understands that. I love her talent though. It is kind of a yin/yang thing at our house. Ha!
Oh, and I really, really, really want to go somewhere with a beautiful beach with my husband in the summer. This September will be our 25th anniversary and that will be our celebration.
Then, I want my husband and I to focus more on our retirement plans ie; saving, planning, and dreaming.
Happy New Year to all of my friends and family in blogger world. 2009!!!
