I have never been one to
Love the idea of “New Year’s Resolutions”. I find them to place too much pressure on one’s self and usually they die out fast. I always am trying for self-actualization (aren’t we all?), and for the most part when I commit to something, I follow through. However, I never define these resolutions I make to myself on New Year’s. It kind of reminds me of the lover’s name tattoo curse. You always seem to hear the same story of one of the lover’s getting their significant other’s name tattooed, only to have their relationship break up the following week. Now that I have gone on a tangent, let’s get back to the purpose of this post.
One of my best friend’s Merryl decided this was going to be her new year of Creativity. And although I ranted (see above) about New Year’s Resolutions, this one resonated with me. I applauded her for it and because she took action on this I could only see the positives with it. How was she going to go about living her new year with creativity you ask? With one of the best books I have seen to date for helping release your creative side. Noah Scalin’s, 365: A Daily Creativity Journal: Make Something Every Day and Change Your Life!. Not only does this book help out the beginner to the professional crafter, but it is the most adorable book! It combines everything from the prompt of the day to areas to journal in. I fell in love with it. Every Monday Merryl will be posting her last week’s projects as well! I believe opening your creative side can only help you positively. It might be hard at first, but soon enough your true self will shine through. And if there was ever going to be a New Year’s Resolution I would approve, it would be the one of more creativity.
