My year technically ended three days ago. I haven’t posted before now because, well, I don’t know. I wasn’t ready, I suppose.
There was no fanfare. No celebration. Not even really any feeling of accomplishment.
What’s wrong with me?
I never make resolutions. I’ve never stuck with any I have halfheartedly made, to my knowledge.
But somehow, I decided it would be a great idea to do this crazy thing for a year.
And I did it.
I. Did. It.
So go me. Whoohoo. Or something like that.
Despite my melancholy mood these days, I have generally come to appreciate the life this blog has afforded me. Or rather, the life I have created because of my commitment to daily intentional acts.
I don’t want that to stop.
For me, I want to continue to feel inspired and reminded to create. For others, I want to continue to offer content to those who have graciously followed The Daily Creative Project, and those yet to discover my little world.
So the question I have been asking myself is:
Do I continue? Create something new? Or find a solution somewhere in between?
I don’t wholly know. I guess I will see what becomes.
But I do have some ideas, at least for right now:
In the very near future: I’m planning to participate in #100happydays via instagram, and who knows, may post them here, too.
In the not-too-distant future: I want to keep this momentum going, but make a shift. For this next year, my focus will be health and wellness, but on a complete budget. I’m seeking, as many of us are, balance. My plan is to start a new page (still connected to DCP blog and the lovely followers I have somehow managed to attract) but that shifts to include weekly posts of creative, natural healthful things that are free or extremely low cost. Here’s why: it’s fairly easy these days, to be healthy if you have the money for it. Food, classes, cleanses, etc. But for those who have not the luxury of expendable income, it can be a tremendously arduous, and sometimes unattainable, task to create a healthy lifestyle. I know this to be true, firsthand. Selfishly, I’m doing this for myself. But I’m also doing this to hopefully offer inspiration to others. I’m thinking the categories will be: food, fitness, beauty, home, art-making (creativity), and spirituality.
What do you think? Shall I continue? Or has this served the purpose it was meant to serve?
All my gratitude for this incredible year of finding my creativity, and more importantly, myself.
Here’s to another day of creativity…
