Last year my theme for 2008 was trust and I'm not sure how well I honored it. Often, I questioned myself and what was going on around me. The move, assignments (I stink, I'll never get another assignment- negative self talk) family issues, etc. You know, nothing earth shattering, just life.
Having said that, I am proud of myself for finally pursuing digital illustration - something I've wanted to do for years. I know I'm on the right track simply because I'm feeling satisfied. I'm having fun. When you're where you are meant to be there is a peace about it. Do you know what I mean? Even if you're not exactly there yet but working towards it, you can feel it, can't you? And it feels good.
So that's what I want for this year. My 2009 theme is contentment (dictionary definition: satisfied, ease of mind). I want to do my best at staying in this feeling because it's truly wonderful. Stress is exhausting. I don't want assignments or lack of assignments to define my happiness as much as it has in the past, that's for sure.
Goals? Just to keep creating, growing and exploring.
Here's to a 2009 full of wonderful possibilities for all of us!
