I have to think that some of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions on a lot of people’s lists would be to eat more healthy, get more exercise and, of course, to stop procrastinating. I know that last one’s been on mine more than once.
This year, though, my main New Year’s Resolution was a lot more concrete … to fire my 1st Angel Blog back up again. You see, back in June, I made the decision to go back to work … a real life, nine-to-five-type office job. It would mean a lot less time for my creative outlets, photography and digital art and writing, but it seemed like the right thing to do. So it was with a heavy heart that I took the first opportunity that came along: doing all the paper-work-y things in my own husband’s office. I have to admit, I experienced more than a little panic at first. Did you know that mysterious and important-looking papers can sneer and laugh maliciously? I swear to you … they can and they do.
However, as the months went by, I was able to shush the evil laughter coming from the “’roundtoit” pile, take a few new pictures here and there, and even open Photoshop and sneak into “The Creative Zone.”
So here I am again … shamefacedly cracking open the door to my virtual 1st Angel office, dusting off the desk and beginning again. But that’s what the New Year is all about, isn’t it? Beginning again?
Of course, we are already a good three weeks into the New Year … so maybe I should think a little harder about adding that procrastination thing back onto the list … ??
What were some of YOUR New Year’s Resolutions, and how are you coming with them?
