all of my resolutions begin the same way…
-write more letters AND post them.
-complete x y & z before beginning anything new.
i’ve been more house bound in the past days. the windows being washed with wicked wind and rain.
the cold has moved in and i’ve plopped myself down on the couch with a blanket, the laptop, and the remote control to the t.v.
i picked up my camera only for a photoshoot (that i’m not too proud of. sigh)
and i’ve just gone right back to hibernating and… lazing.
but i’ve been itching to create. to do something with my hands… to make something. to let my mind wander while i busy myself, rather than staring out the window.
so i pulled out my embroidery hoop and a bit of material and yarn… and only just realised how many pieces i have left unfinished-thread and needle still hopelessly attached.
my mind already wandering to the ideas of making a blanket, learning to crotchet, knitting a scarf, painting on a big canvas with some acrylic.
…and then i remember my ‘resolutions’ and how i never follow through, follow up.. complete a project. always left halfway, or just a few more minutes away from being complete. sentences left unformed, drawings left unpainted, letters left unsealed. legs left unshaved.
good intentions just… pushed to the side.
how do you pick up where you left off?
what about resolutions? do you set them, and follow through?
what are some resolutions you’ve had that you accomplished, and what do you still have on the back burner?
