New Starts

Happy New Year!

New Starts was today’s prompt from Capture Your 365. And it was the perfect prompt for me. I need a new start and I’m trying hard to start new. I’m starting with a new planner (Filofax personal size with DIYfish inserts) and a new plan. I wasted a lot of time last year – well, in my defense we did do a whole lot of traveling so that took up some (a lot) of time. But I still wasted time. I didn’t get as much done as I wanted to. When I had time I mostly felt scattered and not really sure what I want to do. But I have new goals this year and I’m hoping with my new planner I can accomplish these goals.

My word for 2016 is STRETCH. I need to stretch myself in the things I already do and stretch myself to try new things. I also need to stretch literally, like do yoga.

My goals for 2016 are:

  • Research my family using ancestry.com and other tools
  • Document the travel we will be doing this year
  • Document my life – maybe Project Life, maybe some other way
  • Read More (I want to read at least 52 books this year)
  • Handle money better
  • Make art quilts
  • Become healthier (eat better, move more)
  • Create a cozy and colorful home
  • Study Wicca
  • Blog on a regular basis

And finally, my hobbies for this year (I have to put a limit here because I tend to want to try everything and I end up doing nothing):

  • writing
  • photography
  • quilting
  • art journaling
  • project life or something like that
