At my age, a New Year Resolutions has little meaning and really serves no purpose than an act of amusement. Resolutions tend to limit ones broader vision into a narrow one, for one sees the goal as a single path to achieving it and being blind to the road less traveled offering other possibilities that lead to the same conclusion.
Resolutions are merely sets of goals we hope to achieve before the end of a year and unfortunately most resolutions are created in haste with little regard to the success in attaining it, therefore most fail before having even reached mid-year.
As an alternative, consider living each day with open eyes and arms, embracing what life offers and to live each day to the fullest, for once the day is gone, it is gone.
If you would like me to suggest a New Years Resolution, here it is. To remain true to ones creative belief and vision.
It is imperative for creative individuals not to loose sight of ones creative direction, yet at the same time it is also very important to remain open to new ideas. For incorporating a different concept with ones’s vision does reveal artistic growth, but one must first explore the various possibilities and how they can be incorporated in ones current work before embarking on a new path and discarding one’s belief and vision.
