Happy New 2018 Year! I wanted to share my goals for the new year.
Back in December 2017, I started to think about what I wanted 2018 to be about. What did I want to accomplish? What did I want to achieve and what I have decided that wasn’t working for me. Out with the old, in with the new kind of thinking.
I wanted a customized planner to help me fulfill what this new year would mean to me. I went to Plum Planner and purchased a monthly, weekly planner with additional pages for planning blog posts, photography, financial and debt pay downs and a prayer journal. One of the nice things about the planner is that I got to customize the pages I wanted. The paper is a great quality, the price is nice and I don’t have to worry about the coils.
I broke my goals down into several categories:
*Pay off credit card debt
*Pay down student loan
*Build my own business
*Learn drawing, color theory etc
*Read 30 books
*Travel more places
One thing I am thinking of stopping altogether is to stop stamping and card making and do a massive de-stash. I have been in the card making/scrapbooking for the past 14 years and I find that I don’t create that much. I am gravitating more towards coloring and drawing which seems to be more my passion.
This year is about changing and growing as a person. I think it might be time for me to move onto something that drives me. Then I don’t get so overwhelmed that I HAVE to create a card but more along the lines of what I want to do.
Which brings me to YouTube. I have created videos on mini-albums, mixed media and cards. Videos to take a long time to film, edit and upload. I am finding that I don’t have the time nor the drive right now. I may later on but there are quite a bit of goals on my list this year.
I am excited for 2018 and seeing where it takes me. I want to “Follow my bliss” and that means deciding what my bliss is and following it. I don’t want to do those things that I am nor longer interested in for “Likes” and “Thumbs up!”. I would like to be true to myself and be genuine to those I come in contact with.
Have a blessed 2018!!!!
