Gratitude and Goals
2015 was a great year for me, and I can't help but be filled with gratitude. I have amazing friends and family, I married my best friend, got into a great post bacc program, and have found unbelievably awesome networks of people who are willing to help me along this journey. The Christmas season always remind me how blessed I am; that plus all the quality fam and friends time make it my favorite time of year!
I know there's a host of people who don't believe in making New Years Resolutions or reinvention just because of a date change....but I'm not one of them! I love using the energy of a new year to motivate me. I've been noticing the trend of picking a word as a mantra instead of setting a goal, so I figure I give it a go:
That's my word! Bloom. I've been building and learning and all together too hesitant to just let my pottery flourish. I think 2016 will be the year it blooms like a beautiful ranunculus. That's what I'm going to push for. Of course I have other more tangible goals to get me there, but that will be the word I say to myself when I try to talk myself out of sending in that application, or signing up for a business account, or when I'm too tired to take photos of my work, or signing a lease on a studio rental. bloom bloom blossom bloom boom.
