This year a tried a lot of new things like Ariel silks, rock climbing, airBnb-ing, salsa dancing, created a 21 day photo challenge that had attendees from all corners of the world and djing. I’ve been thinking about what I loved and didn’t love, what worked and didn’t work, and of course what is it I actually want to invest my time into…
One thing I realize is that it’s been fun trying all these new things, but what I really would like to do is narrow down my focus. I’ve been thinking a lot about how painting, drawing, singing and crafting makes me very happy. So I’m challenging myself to be as creative as I can through out my week.
I identify with being an introvert. This doesn’t mean I’m shy, it means to me that I need to be alone to restore my energy. When I’m with people all the time I get tired. Last year I did a lot of new things and was very very busy meeting new people in lots of group activities. I realized that this wasn’t sustainable for myself because I need to be alone and be creative alone.
So when reflecting on your new year. Here are some questions to ask yourself:
What was awesome?
What didn’t go so well?
What do I want to improve upon?
What environments and situations brought out the best in me this past year?
Can I put myself in more of those situations?
Can I have one focus for the year instead of 3-5?
Good luck with your resolutions, let me know how it goes.
