So my New Year's Resolution list comes with a confession. I've forgotten how to dream big. Well, maybe not forgotten but to be honest I've been so goal centered (the book) the last couple of years that I've haven't made the time to really sit down and devote some time to dreaming. Do you do this? Get so wrapped up in the next thing on your to do list that you get to the bottom of the list without realizing it?
Here's what I've concluded:
I need a new list.
(I love lists.)
In the past, when I've felt direction-less I'll think of the new things I want to learn, or the people I want to spend time with, or the yummy art materials I'd like to play with, or the places I'd like to go. But I feel like I need something more. I don't have a ton of time so do I concentrate my creative energies on publishing? on producing/selling? on promoting? Really right now I just want to give myself some time to play, and explore.
I've felt so tapped the last couple of week. It might be the strep infection I found out I have, or it might be more. I'm not sure yet. But I'll tell you what my plan is- I'm going to pray about it, then I'm going to make some lists, I'm going to do some journaling, and I'm going to give myself some free time. Then, I'm going to come here and share it with you.
What do you dream about and how do you identify those dreams? How do you distinguish between wishes and dreams? I've got a post about what I think the difference is here. Do you make a grand plan for the year each January? I'd love to know so please leave a comment!!!
