I guess I should say, Happy Belated New Year! I hope I'm able to catch up with this year soon as I have many things planned for 2010. My list of crafty resolutions is still taking shape as the plan for how to accomplish my list of personal resolutions is being mapped out. So far it looks like I'm going to tackle 2010 from all angles - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Physically - Not only am I going to work on getting back in shape (my physical form) I'm also going to improve my physical surroundings, such as getting new storage for my yarn and perhaps complete a few sewing projects to decorate the house.
Mentally - I'm going to work on making lists and plans that have clear goals and milestones to accomplish what I want to do. There is too much clutter up in my noggin. This includes getting down on paper and into planning a number of patterns and possibly opening an Etsy store. This also includes trying to find a new job where I feel mentally stimulated and one that doesn't suck the life from me. Something closer to home would be great, too.
Emotionally - Emotionally, I'm good. I've got the best husband ever so no worries there. It's just getting the other things - physically, mentally and spiritually - in order to reduce unnecessary stress and keep my emotional status in check (i.e. not resort to drama-queen reactions. As I learned in October, I am NOT low-key).
Spiritually - Whatever spiritual path you follow or beliefs you hold (or don't hold), that's up to you. I was fortunate enough to find my path many years ago but I've been disconnected from it for a few years now. The daily grind can do that to you if you don't make time for yourself or for important activities. I'm hoping in 2010 to reconnect with my beliefs and my path. The spinners are still spinning and it is in my best interest to pay attention to what is going on. They have a way of giving good hints as to what they are up to so that you can be prepared for what is coming.
Hope your New Year is off to a great start! (or at least a great plan)
