new year - more promises...

With each new year comes new promises.  Some of the promises I keep.  Some I consciously decide I am not ready for.  Others simply fall by the wayside.  My vision board this year is full of broken promises to myself.  I joked with my partner that I don't even need to do a new vision board this year - since I pretty much haven't met any of last years goals.  As I get older, I realize that so much of my life is lived in the moment.  I want to be this super organized planner of my life, but life doesn't really work out that way. 
Having children just makes that even more so.
But I do think that having some written goals are important.  So, here are a few
  1. I want to show more gratitude.
  2. I want to be present for my children.
  3. I want to be present in my relationships.
  4. I want to continue to strive for a life where aside from family, art can be at my center.
I haven't written in my blog for a while.  My son started daycare, which has meant we have all been super ill for the last three months.  I just finished my last antibiotic- but am not feeling all together healthy.  My job situation changed recently, and due to some pretty hefty budget cuts to mental health services for children, I am back to doing an old part of my job that I had hoped I was done with. I have also been focusing some of my creative energy on a new ETSY store that I created that is centered around some of the artwork  I have been making for my son.
 So I have been busy - but I have missed writing my blog and reading the comments that are left for me.  This blog is important to me, and I love the people I have met through it- so it is something that I feel I want to recommit to this year.  So, sorry I have been absent.  I will try to be better:-)

Happy New Year!
May the year bring you laughter, creativity, love, beauty, inspiration, wonder, and connection.

I'm so glad to see you and your art back--you have such a talent to share. It's very hard when you have young children to do anything!!
But I love your commitment to yourself--everything else will work out when you're content in your life.
