I don't "do" New Year's resolutions. I know myself too well. If someone else gives me instructions, or a job to do, I can and will do it as best I can, and on schedule. If I give myself a job to do, I procrastinate, think of reasons I should be doing something else, or put someone else's request or need in front of my own. I can make to do lists with shopping, errands, miscellaneous small tasks, but when it comes to scheduling time to create. . .it doesn't seem practical or worthy of a list or place on the calendar.
I hope to change this. I need to change this. I am a creative person, I love new ideas! I have plenty of things I would love to try. I don't know why I always overthink things and find reasons not to begin a project. I need to try, to do, to act on these ideas I have been storing up for so long.
Enough with reasons not to create--clutter, laundry, dishes. . .
I still need to do these things, but they shouldn't be a hinderance to my creative time. I have a family that needs to be cared for, but I need to learn when it is okay for me to be selfish in my time to be who I am created to be. . .
Ready, set. . .
