Push forward…

As I begin to push 2020 out of the way, I am feeling some excitement. 🎉

Much like everyone else around me, I am so done with 2020 and can’t wait to ring in the New Year with so many things I want to experience. Some are new and some are renewed.

Every year, I begin by creating lists…. Lots of damn lists… 😔

My Planner Page

There are “to do” lists, workout program lists, meal plan lists, goal lists, book lists, budget lists. This is simply too much. Sometimes baby steps are needed. Quite often, small changes are more effective and lead to better habits without even thinking.

For example, one small change I made last year was substituting a scoop of protein powder instead of cream or sugar in my coffee. Guess what? It resulted in less of an afternoon crash and not feeling “hangry”. Why? because protein fills your fuel tank and makes you feel full. Sugar absorbs quickly and makes you want more. The wonderful result of a small change was more muscle.

Reflecting on this past year no matter how much it hurts, has to be done.

Growth needs to happen. If you never planted a seed last year, your going to fall on your face this year. 🌴 Bet me!

Your love gives me Hope. Welcome to 2021, its going to be grand!

And there it is….. This was my project for lesson 2 of Layering techniques 1 and my inspiration came from my readers. Enjoy! 💘

Discovering an old love 💘

Its seems as though many of these “stay at home” orders are not going away anytime soon.

I have decided to dust off some of my tools and direct my creative energy into learning something new.

Being able to sit down in the evening and reduce my anxiety by simply coloring, organizing my planner or just writing was proving to be therapeutic.

I have decided to take on some art classes at my own pace and time.

While some weeks get really crazy with work, some weeks I end up with more time than I know what to do with.

Check in frequently to see what I may be getting into and what crazy things I may be doing. You just may find something that you want to try yourself.
