Since it is that time of year, I contemplated what I want to accomplish this year. What do I want to check off the list; how do I want to show up in life; what will further my passionate purpose in life and allow me to show up more authentically; how can I more fully engage life?   Rather than regurgitating similar resolutions from years gone by, I opted for what felt like more powerful mindsets in the form of resolutions.  This year, I want a more productive mind set to lead me down my unique path.  Here are the guiding principle resolutions I came up with:

NO Rules

Be Bold

Be wildly original

Engage with laser focus

Implement excellent time management

No Excuses – No Justification

My word is sacred

Mine is the only opinion that matters – what other people think does not matter to me.

Dare the impossible – Do the incredible

I boldly wrote these principles in colored pens on my desk pad.   I also resolved to more regularly pursue the passions that drive me: writing and playing in art.  I resolved to have my book published this year.  I also resolved to write more regularly on this blog.  Most passionately, I resolved to play in art daily, which can take the form of creating or practicing art.  My heart sings simply thinking about it! I’m craving to be much more of a unique individual and not a conformist to societal expectations, which is where I’ve played most of my life.  A bold, unique, enigmatic, creative, passionate, inspired, authentic life of bliss.  That’s my true goal for 2014.  What’s yours?

Here are some of the pieces of artwork I have created in 2014:
