Happy New Year!
We’d like to wish you a very creative new year, and we hope that you take some time to reflect on the past year and celebrate your creative outputs and achievements. Sometimes, we don’t give ourselves enough credit for how far we’ve came. We think about what we’ve could have done, about what went wrong or the missed opportunities; it’s time to start fresh and change the way we think!
Take a moment to reflect on what you’ve actually done this past year. Nothing is “too small” to call an achievement. No ideas is “not good enough” to call a creative output. Make a list of any project you’ve started, anything you’ve stood up for, anything that you’ve even tried to achieve. Here are some prompts to help you out:
- Think about the people you’ve met this past year and what impact they’ve had on you.
- Have you taken any classes or workshops?
- Have you started any projects?
- Did you make time for your kids, family or friends?
- Have you taken any steps towards self care?
- What creative outputs have you generated, or started thinking about?
See, you’ve done more than you think! Amazing!
Now, take a closer look at your creative outputs. There may have been times where you felt blocked and couldn’t generate any ideas. The important thing is that you didn’t put yourself down and kept trying. See? As we move into a new year, pat yourself on the back and really give yourself credit.
We want you to take this way of thinking into 2020. Celebrate anything that you do. Every single thing. Nothing is meaningless. You might not be where you want but you are moving. You are taking a step forward, and that needs to be celebrated.
This year, we hope you celebrate, be grateful and do more. Before you know it, you will have accomplished a list of things and you will get closer to your goals. We will talk about goals in the next blog. For now, celebrate and Happy 2020!
