So as it is the last day of the wonderful year that has been 2012, I often take this time to sit down and think about all the things that i would like to achieve in the coming year ( I do find it sometimes selfish of myself to want things, or to feel the need to be me me me, but i think its always good to have a plan) somethings are life long goals some are everyday and others are what i would like to achieve next year I am not always one for resolutions, as i am terribly un-organised but I wanted to share with you, a few things that I wish to integrate in to my life in 2013, I am slowly starting to create a lifestyle like I use to have when I lived down in cornwall. Having a lifestyle is important so here are a few things i would like to pour my attention into. So these have just spilled out of my journal and onto the interwebs..
I would really love to Take my photography a bit more seriously, it is probably my biggest passion bar drawing, I don’t leave the house without taking my trust Nikon D40. I think this year I want to take my photography a little bit further push my boundaries, not entirely sure in which direction but i hear it calling me, something that i use to do everyday when i was at uni was to keep a journal and yes as an artist I am surrounded by them, but i want to keep a sort of scrapbook journal I always find comfort in my old diaries that i kept between the ages of 10-22 its something since i started working full-time that i left behind and became consumed with being an adult and forgot to do me stuff.
De-clutter my oh so cluttered life, i am the type of girl that will keep wrappers off chocolates because someone i love gave it to me, like seriously ella you need to sort yourself out! I no longer want to be surrounded by stuff, I can see myself in 20 years time being on that hoarders programme on channel 4 (one of my friends worked on the production of it to close for comfort if you ask me!) Talking of friends this pass year has been a strange one that has made friendships and dually broken them, I do think I am now to old to be guilt tripped into a friendship, i only want to surround myself with positivity and i think thats my mind set for 2013, 2012 was a year of doubt about my abilities in many things and this is something I want to change within myself so that I learn to say yes more rather then i’m not sure.
I am really excited about 2013, I think I still have a few things to tweak in my life but i do feel that i slowly getting somewhere. I am one for setting life goals, but I think its best to start right at the beginning so i know what direction I want to head in.
I won’t set any goals for my blog, I just feel that most of my blog posts are spontaneous, i tried the planned blogging thing it just put me off, so this blog will stay spontaneous and a refection of me. But I have some rather awesome features set up for next year that I am super excited about.
Is there anything that you want to embrace in 2013?
