My Non Goals........
The "G" word, in case you haven't noticed stands for "GOALS".
Every January everyone brings out their goals and resolutions for the new year.
I don't believe in goals. I think they can set you up for failure. So many expectations placed upon you. And you do it to yourself no less!
It is not for lack of trying either. When I was making jewelry I tried the ring-a day challenge, the the 52 earrings a year challenge, the collage a day challenge etc.
I always fail at these goals and I am not going to do it to myself again.
So no. No goals for me. I just want everyone to stay healthy this year (including myself) if you can call that a goal and I want to keep painting in my studio as much as possible.
Oh I guess I do have one goal albeit an unattainable one. To create my masterpiece. I consider it unattainable for two reasons. The first is that I wouldn't know it was my masterpiece and second if I did create one it would become a masterpiece long after I have left the earth.
So the only answer is to keep working every day that I can. And on a day when I can't get in my studio I am not going to beat myself up over it.
