So, it might be close to the end of January, but any point in time should be considered a good time to talk about your vision and inspiration if you ask me! Amber Housley and I were recently chatting about our goals, and decided to both blog about them. I'll be continuing to write posts about my goals and my word for 2014, but for now enjoy this post about what is visually inspiring me for this upcoming year.
2013 was an incredible year for me, filled with many grande endings and amazing new beginnings. It was a year of self discovery and affirmation that I should be the person I am at my core. Attending Making Things Happen sparked that more than anything. 2013 was the year I graduated from college, the year that I moved to my first new city after living in North Carolina for 13 years, the year that I started my first "real life" job, and the year that I made an incredible group of new friends while still keeping in touch with old friends. It was an amazing year that I will always cherish.
For me, 2014 will be all about focusing on enjoying the simple pleasures in life. I want to eat more sweets than the doctor recommends, trying every macaron there is to find in Nashville. I want to wear sequins and tulle skirts on ordinary Tuesdays. I want to toast to life with friends and champagne over the smallest celebrations. I want to travel as much as possible, and if I can't physically travel to Paris, I want to do so through art and literature. I want to read a new book every month to keep my mind stimulated. I want to paint every single day so that I can fill my walls with art. And most importantly, I want to always remember that creativity rules, and strive to find my own personal style of creativity daily.
