I've never been a fan of new year's resolutions because they tend to lose momentum after the first few weeks of January. It's always useful to set yourself goals to aim for though, otherwise how will you know what you want to be doing?
2009 was not a great year for most people. I must admit, there were many ups and downs, many significant changes for me but all for the better when I reflect upon it. Change is inevitable, but you can make the decisions that influence it. In 2009 I decided that fear was holding me back. Fear of: failure, success, rejection? Better to try and fail than not to have tried at all. Regret nothing. That was my motivation.
And in 2010, I am going to be putting more than 100% into my illustration work & hope that I will begin to reap the benefits soon!
