There are only four months left of 2013. Have you accomplished your goals for the year? What do you need to prioritize to end the year on a high note?
My goals always seem to get blown out of the water and not in a good way. All to often I'm left wondering how another year passed and what happened to most of them! This year was no different.
Back in January, when I wrote a long list in my journal, I was eagerly optimistic but now I sit here hanging my head in shame.
On a personal level I'd planned to exercise, lose weight, learn to cook something different so that we weren't stuck with the same half dozen dishes each week, walk the dogs more often, do more around the house and drink a lot more fluids (I'm always being told I need to drink more fluids). Lets just say these were all an epic fail.
Other goals included learning more about my camera's settings, exploring digital collage, trying new painting techniques, finding additional venues to sell my artwork, creating something daily and working towards publication. Many more 'fail's' . . . can you see a bit of a trend going on here.
At least I can console myself with the fact that I've been reading more and watching less television, visiting galleries and museums, creating from a more personal place and while I haven't written more (as I'd planned) I have continued to blog and to share my story.
As for what I need to do to end the year on a high note . . . hhhmmm, think I'm going to need to do some series navel gazing to figure that one out.
How about you, have you been more successful in accomplishing your goals?
