motivation

so many people (myself included) make resolutions every year that they don't stick to... so after i made my list of resolutions for 2009, i decided i needed some sort of visual representation of my goals to help keep me on track every day.  here is what i came up with:


i hung it up on a cork board in my studio, and i think it will help provide inspiration for me to keep working toward my goals all year :)  for anyone who has made new year's resolutions of their own this year... i highly recommend making some sort of visual motivator to help you remember what you are trying to do every day!  

mine was really easy and fun to make... i just typed my goals up in some quirky fonts (dafont has tons of great fonts... but please note that most are for personal use only), printed it out on fine art paper, and colored it in with my favorite prismacolor markers.  you could also make a collage of motivational images from magazines that represent your goals... or draw a picture of how you envision yourself by the end of 2009... anything to help you meet your goals this year!

xoxo,

What a great idea, and a great set of goals.

Last year, rather than a make a resolution, I decided to just pick a work and try to apply it to my life. I picked the work "action" -- because I'm a procrastinator, and I also wanted to work in a little more physical activity, so the word worked on both fronts. I liked picking a "resolution" in this way, because it wasn't specific and didn't leave me feeling like I didn't accomplish my resolution. I did apply "action" to many aspects of my life -- both in regard to my procrastination and in regard to activity, so I think it really worked well. I've been trying to pick a new word for this year, but have yet to settle on one word. I should have one soon though... :)
