I am back. The New Year has begun despite how desperately I cling to the old. I can’t quite bear to take my tree down just yet. How lovely it is to have a tree gracing one’s living room! Why do we only do this once a year?
For whatever reason I’ve been reluctant to say goodbye to the holidays. I just love Christmas and this year it seemed especially short. If only it had lasted one week longer?
However, I also love new beginnings…
Do you like to make resolutions? I make them constantly and I am addicted to keeping lists. Writing things down and setting clear purpose helps me feel organized and encouraged. I love looking over my inspiration lists when I feel a little down. It always cheers me up again.
I’m sure I could write a list of resolutions a mile long, but instead I thought I would offer just three things to share with you all:
1. Embrace Creativity
No matter what form it takes, it’s essential to my state of happiness that I make creative projects a central part of my lifestyle.
2. Read more!
I’ve really gotten lazy since graduation and I have stacks of wonderful books I keep buying and not reading. Up next: Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in this Castle.
3. Open the Gypsea Tree Etsy Shop
I have talked, planned, and schemed about all of this for far too long. 2010 is the year the shop will open it’s doors!
How about you? What kind of plans are you developing?
Happy New Year everyone!
