Happy New Year!
Before I start writing about my achievements from 2013 and aspirations for 2014 (hello!), I’d like to say massive thank you to those who supported my little art business and blog that I’ve put all of my heart and time into full-time. While I love being full time artist/ photographer/ blogger, it has been tough in terms of finance and time so your endless support – all the likes, comments, retweets and many more – has helped me so much, to storm through those difficult days and cherish those good days. Millions of thank yous coming your way!
// STEP OUTSIDE MY COMFORT ZONE
Yeah, I did it! Over the summer, I spontaneously “lived” in Germany for a month and half. I drew stuff every single day, mainly experiemented with different mediums I didn’t usually use. It was pretty amazing, I was an artist who wasn’t willing to try something new (crazy) and now I am the opposite.
// GET INTO RUNNING
I am not sure how well I did – I ran often during spring and summer but later at the colder days, I lacked motivation. With my awfully unfit self, I found it tricky to really get into it and to make up for it, I also started going for a swim last September which turned out a more suitable form of exercise for me. Despite my lack of motivation in running, I am actually impressed with myself that I tried even though I couldn’t really run well. I want to try to continue when it gets warmer out, mixing up my exercise with swimming too.
// SPEND LESS
I’ve been good with money. I’ve had few naughty sprees but I kept my eyes on my balance and constantly gave myself limited budgets. Being a full time artist, I have to be responsible with money to be able to live a life. I do buy all the stuff discounted but this year I am hoping to stop buying too many shoes, no matter how cheap they are..
// BE MORE ORGANISED
I remind myself every year to be more organised. I got a little more organised last year when I discovered Bullet Journal, that is all. I am always behind with all of my paperworks, losing stuff and forgetting things and I want to totally change that.
// BE HEALTHIER
I eat and drink relatively well and this year I want to eat better. In smaller portions, especially. I often eat salad for lunch but I make them in huge portions. I’d like to reduce my intakes of fizzy drinks and Minstrels too.
What is your new year resolution and what have you achieved last year? Leave me a link if you have written a post something like that, I’d love to read them!
