I hope you’ve had a fabulous festive season, I don’t know about you guys but I’m looking forward to seeing in the new year! As usual I have been in a reflective mood, reading a lot of motivating blogs and thinking about what I’m going to achieve in 2014.
I wanted to share how I come up with my yearly goals. It’s really simple you just need to think about the things you’ve done in 2013 that make you feel great, your #2013Triumph’s. Then you simply look at any goals you had for 2013 to see how you did and what you need to work on in 2014 :)
If you’re having trouble remembering your year, which I certainly did! An easy way to remind yourself of all the great things you’ve done is to browse through the places that you document your life. Be that online or offline, Journals, Sketchbooks, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, etc.
My triumphs over 2013
First licensing deal
Keka approached me in October to license some of my prints for their range of tech accessories you can get them here!
Art therapy foundation
I committed to expanding my career aspirations by starting a short taster Art Therapy Foundation. I have finished the course now and it is still a career that intrigues me.
Hopefully in a couple of years I’ll have enough experience to pursue it and do the degree see my posts on art therapy here
I started blogging again! to be honest it’s been on and off all year but I’m working with DexterousDivaVIP now so this blog should be slammin’ and jam packed with posts in a couple of months
From my temp job coming to a close I got the chance to volunteer with The Blue Room which is amazing project run at The Bluecoat. I’d love to do it full time, Thursdays are my favourite day because I get to spend the day with a lovely group helping them make art
I bought a car!
I passed my driving test and bought my car and insurance(which was more than the car!) I can’t remember what it was like not driving but it’s still mind-boggling to think that I’ve been driving for pretty much a whole year
What where your triumphs this year? Think about the great things you’ve done this year even the little stuff that makes you happy?!
