|Clarence Hinkle, Still Life (c. 1935)|
In 2010 I wrote this list, which I revised in 2011, and revised again in 2012 (below).
A lot of the things on this list are goals that I still feel I need to work on - more dancing, more forest walking, more writing, more art. Some things are life-goals - live in the country, visit a black sandy beach. Still, I feel like I've accomplished a lot this year! I finally got up-close-and-personal with some alpacas after seeking out an alpaca festival in Wisconsin! I still haven't cut my hair, and it's getting really long. I stopped drinking in 2010, and that has made all the difference - life is more vibrant and fun, and I'm more even-keeled and happy. After 3 years, I finally got over an ex-boyfriend and realized that we weren't meant to be together. I also realized that it was time to let my parents take care of themselves - something that took a lot of courage for me to do. "Letting go" allowed me to allow Brian into my life and into my heart. Which brings me to the biggest change of 2012: I got engaged! It's been a very good year.
So, here is the list for 2012:
1. visit a black sanded beach
2. live in a house in "the country" for at least 2 complete seasons
7. learn how to screenprint and then do it
11. more dancing
12. more forest walking
13. write a story to its natural end
14. keep gettin muddy
18. MORE ART.
What will I accomplish in 2013? I'm excited to see.
What are your hopes and goals for the coming year?
