So here we are. 2018.
New Year, New you........resolutions......we'll change the world......sadly it normally starts to fizzle and fade by March even with the very best of intentions!
I started my challenge last April. I dipped my toe in the water and tested my 'staying power', and guess what? I did it. Here I am. What Sarah Made.
Art is my happy place. The place where I'm comfortable and safe. The place that makes me smile and gives me that warm fuzzy feeling.....but life inevitably gets in the way time and again. It happens. Takes you by surprise and it's sometimes way beyond our control. BUT we deal with it the best we can and we move on.
We must MAKE TIME to do the things that make us happy and send us to our safe haven. Even if it's only for half an hour a day... or just 5 minutes if that's all that you have. That precious time is what makes you who you are!
So in my babble, what I'm trying to say is that you can do it! Whatever your goal. Take those bite sized 5 minute chunks and chip away. Slowly but surely, you'll get there. To your little oasis of warm gooey contentment, whatever or wherever it may be.
The challenge then is to stay there! Stick at it. Make it a big part of your life. Make it part of who you are.
I am a mum, daughter, sister, fiancé, friend and co-worker but what's so very important is to always remind myself that along side these
I AM AN ARTIST
That's my mantra for the year. Lets see where it goes.....
