It seems like ages ago that I was making my New Year’sresolutions. Most of us have forgotten about them or, more than likely, given up. I was just to going to let mine fade into a distant memory. But by doing this, my resolutions would have seemed like a failure. So I decided choose one thing to really focus on for the rest of the year.
Many of us pick unattainable goals. By selecting things that are relatively simple to do instead, it becomes much easier to see the progress you’ve made. Listing personal achievements are a great way to boost confidence and so reviewing your original resolutions, breaking them down and concentrating on one easy goal is a fantastic way of feeling good about yourself.
I chose to focus on my goal of drawing more. I’d already sat down and produced some quick sketches (inspired by David Attenborough’s Africa)! Now I aim to sit down with my paper and pencils on a more regular basis, even if it’s just for five minutes. And who knows, maybe soon I’ll have moved onto the paints!
