I hope you’ve had a great holiday season spent with your loved ones and that now as the new year begins, you have time to reflect on all that is good in your life and how you’d like to make it even better.
Writing has always been a part of my profession and throughout the years has crept into my clay art. So this time of year when we shake off the year that is passing and welcome the one about to begin, I like to write down my goals as part of this tradition.
I’ve learned over the years to make promises to myself that I can keep. Simple small healthy steps are achievable. These days, I prefer to concentrate on what more I can do in my life rather than create a list of restrictions. I try to focus on positive actions rather than negative restraints. Composing, adjusting and editing my intentions throughout the year has been a useful practice.
Writing it down solidifies it for me. A new year reminds me to take a fresh look at my goals. I’ve noticed that several of my art pieces encourage this practice for the owner. Maybe one of these will encourage you to write it down and make it happen in the coming year!
