There's this image going around the internet at the moment. Its a word search with various positive words in. You have to look through the puzzle and find the first three words you come across.
My three words: fun, freedom and intelligence.
I don't know whether these words were guided to me by fate or just coincidence but each word represents something from my resolutions and also my life goals.
Let me explain.
Fun. A word often used loosely but something we should all try and do; have more fun. We take our lives too seriously and although cliché to say, we all do need to have a little fun in our lives. This is why my partner and I have given us a 2014 bucket list where we have chosen a number of activities between us that we want to do this year. We are also going to be eating at a different restaurant once a month, to try new places and new foods. All of this will give us positive experiences but will also make our year a lot more fun.
Freedom. This can mean a lot of things perhaps freedom from school, freedom from a difficult or stressful life, freedom from work. For me, it's allowing myself to become free. Let my creativity spiral into different forms or do something which I want to do and not looking back. There are many things I wish to do with my life and sometimes I'm told I can't do something I enjoy or want to progress with. 2014 is my time to jump out of the comfort zone and enjoy the freedom.
Intelligence. As you get older its more and more difficult to learn something from scratch and I am getting older. If you want to begin to play guitar, for example, the ideal age to start is 8 years old. Now 25, its not only near impossible to find time to do such a thing but when we do find time we are easily distracted by our domestic lives. So jnstead of learning something new, it would be nice to continue learning the things I most enjoy; graphic design, photography, photoshop and maybe some time for my electric guitar. This all ties in with my creative resolution and the idea of creating challenges that will focus my creative channels. Knowledge is power. I will improve my creative intelligence.
