A New Year is so exciting, isn't it? A fresh start, so many possibilities, hopes and resolutions. We say goodbye to the last year with a grateful "see ya later," and move on to the next 365 days feeling optimistic and enthusiastic...
I will be honest, so far this year has been a bit of a struggle for me. Several mental and emotional hurdles, along with sickness and freezing temperatures, making it hard to get outside. Some days it just seems daunting to think ahead or feel optimistic. A New Year brings such high expectations that getting off to a less than stellar start is quite discouraging.
With that said, I have not given up.
I am actually excited about one thing in particular. My art. I feel the momentum coming back in my bones and am already optimistic about making new things.
I am in the process of making a plan, updating my website, working on new pieces and drinking all the "you've got this" juice I can get my hands on; all while giving myself a bit of grace to move slowly and soulfully ahead.
So if you are also feeling a bit bummed about this new year, it's okay. We've got eleven more months to get back on track. Let these "not so great" days happen as they will, but know that a new day is coming and soon enough we'll be back on our feet with full hearts and motivated minds once again.
