Single White Procrastinator Seeks…

Truth be told, in devising my 2009 resolution, I procrastinated for so long that I finally decided against the whole idea. Then I ran across a few web sites which inspired a new idea.

First, I found Creative Every Day. This site poses the challenge to do just that – create every day. Yes, anyone could have thought of that. The site’s creator, Leah, takes it a step further by suggesting ‘themes’ to spring from (this month’s is “play”), and asking people to share their art/blog/etc. so that everyone can benefit. I thought it was a great motivator. It will be a struggle, but I’m going to try to do it!

Reading through Leah’s entries, I also came upon Christine Kane’s blog article Resolution Revolution. She has a lot to say about New Year’s resolutions, why they fail, etc. Her words struck a major chord with me. Perhaps this is a type of resolution I could keep? I’ll mull that over and let you know…

In the Beginning…

Yes, I do sometimes still feel like rainbows are flying out of my head

Yes, I do sometimes still feel like rainbows are flying out of my head

So here I am, finally starting a blog. It makes me feel really self-absorbed to be writing this or considering the concept of journaling about myself for the whole world to see. But I need to do this; I’ve needed it for a very long time. Sad, in a way, that I’ve let myself slip so far over the past few years.

I want to get back to what I used to be, and then become even more. I know I’m there, deep inside, hiding and waiting to come out and play again. I’m excited – to paint and write and create again. To let all of my colors seep out into the world, where they can sneak into other peoples’ lives.

I’ve felt uninspired for a very long time, and I’m deciding to delete that word from my vocabulary starting now…
