I'm so excited for this coming year. I was excited for 2013 too and it didn't let me down. I met people I admired, I spent quality time with friends new & old and I finally made a huge decision which gives me space to go after what I really want.
2013 wasn't perfect of course. There were some serious and stressful events but all in all it did lead me and my beautiful little family on to a new path, and I truly believe it's a good one for all of us.
The biggest change was me leaving my job. I didn't have a choice due to family stuff and I felt like my world was falling apart. It wasn't the job I didn't want to lose though - it was my sense of self I had through working there. To be honest I didn't like the place. It was full of people I had nothing in common with who aspired to be like "The only way is Essex" or The Kardashians. I loved working with clients and I loved beauty therapy but that place...ugh.
Enough about that. I chose my family over money, and we haven't looked back.
So 2014 for me is about working for myself an art. I want to lose myself in creativity.
With that said I decided to sign up and do a year long art class online called "LifeBook" It's been running for a few years now and the feedback is amazing. I spent months deciding if I could justify buying the course and finally caved 2 days before the new year. I'm so glad I did.
I am now waiting on all my art supplies arriving so I can get started. I have watched the video's and am so excited to dive in. I am a little nervous because I can't draw as far as I'm aware but heck - practice makes perfect, right? RIGHT!
I'll be posting updates as I go on here along with the rest of my adventures in 2014.
What are you taking up/giving up in the new year? Share with me :)
