Art Will Be My Therapy (Yes that is an original piece by ME)

SETTING GOALS AND MAKING A PLAN TO ACHIEVE THEM

PART 2

I had to make a second part to “goals” because I rambled A LOT in PART 1. Apparently there is a lot more involved in peeling back my layers than I thought. That being the case, hold on folks it will probably be a rough ride. I am not exaggerating when I say, “my life has been more crazy then most thirty year olds’.” Back to goal setting, they will probably play a major role in this life adventure. 

GOAL #2: I WILL GET IN TOUCH WITH THE LOCAL ART COMMUNITY AND I WILL CONTINUE TO EXPLORE MY ARTISTIC ABILITIES.

THE PLAN: I am an artist. I love to paint and I love multi-media collages. I mostly do abstract because that is just what I prefer. Abstract art speaks to my soul the most. Due to my husbands’ job, we move A LOT. No seriously, we have been married six years, and we have already lived in 3 different states. It is quite exhausting, and it makes it extremely difficult to meet new people and find friends. I mean where do you go to find people when you are a mother of four and your life is your family? I really need to figure that out. Finding friends will definitely be a path we take on this journey. Anyway, I am not sure where all of the artist are hiding, but you can bet I am going to find out. There is a coffee shop up the road that hangs local art. I think I will start there. Who knows, maybe they will take one of my paintings. Also, I found a local Facebook page that is for selling local handmade things. My friend request has already been accepted. Maybe I can get my foot in the door somewhere and maybe even sell some paintings. I won’t know unless I try. Either way, I will push myself to paint more. I will plan on making a new piece of art each month.

Shew, I have a few more goals I want to set more myself, but I don’t want to overdue it. Right now there is plenty to focus on. I want to lose 20 pounds in six months, exercise everyday, paint more, sell some artwork, and write more poetry. All while trying to figure out who I am other than “mom.” I am afraid that if I dream too big, all at once, I may not succeed the way I want to. So… Small steps it is. Wish me luck.

      1. It’s not difficult, depending on your blog theme, you may just have to play with it a bit. For me, I had to have lots of patience to get the header just right, if you need help, just ask me!
