After a long (and much needed) break from computers, internet and various social media recreations, I am back and ready to face 2012.
My mind, and my life as well, was pretty cluttered in the past few weeks, so I had to rest a bit, relax and enjoy my holidays in Rome with my boyfriend.
I decided to write down some resolutions for 2012, and somehow I came out with a list of guidelines as well as some goals.
Here is what I wrote (it is now placed inside my Filofax!):
I need to stay focused on who/what I love, and on what I like doing: thus, I decided to set monthly (and easy) goals. I need to relax and to fight the performance anxiety that haunts me in most occasions. I want to find a job and to do freelance work. I want to do more illustrations and sketches, and to practice handmade type & calligraphy. I want to read more books and watch more movies. I want to be happy and to love what I’m doing, where I’m doing it, and the people I have around me.
2011 has been great, for an incredible amount of reasons: I finished university, I began doing freelance work, I launched my personal website, built strong friendships with awesome people and strenghtened my relationship with S.
But it has also been awful: I had to leave Rome (hopefully it’s just temporary) and to experience a long distance relationship; I had to go back to a “regular” family life, with all its pros and cons, and I had to struggle not to make this particular moment of my life feel as a jump back in time.
Therefore 2012, I have great plans for you and me!
Also, I decided to start a 52 weeks project!
Every week, I’ll post an illustrated version of my Thursday Love List. I am very determined to do it regularly, and the idea of having to draw something every week is both scary and inspiring. I love challenges! Let’s see how it goes! I’ll begin next Thursday.
Have you ever done a 52 weeks project? Or even harder, a 365 days challenge?
I’m super curious about it!
