I’m sure today the blogging world is full of lists of everyone’s New Years Resolutions because today is just that day. I know I have lots of goals I would love to accomplish, most of which are too private or too boring to blog about.
I do have one goal, however, that I would like to share.
After my 30 Days of Sewing goal, I learned that I can get better at something if I just set aside a few minutes a day to work on it. By sewing just 30 minutes a day, my sewing skills improved dramatically. After the 30 days were over, I did another 30 days and another. Then I got too busy with life events that my sewing had to be set aside.
Now that life has settled, I can once again do the things I love.
This year, I have made a resolution to sew everyday for a whole year.
My actual goal is more lenient. I know that I may not be able to sew every single day this year, so my goal is to sew 30 minutes a day 5 times a week. I am going to sew 7 days a week when I can, so that way I can have “saved” days where I can go on vacation, or just those days I’m too busy.
So, to be technical, my goal is to sew 260 days this year. I think that sounds like a very reasonable goal. I feel confident that I can do this.
The point of this is to set aside time in my day to do the things I love. Please feel free to join me if you want!
Happy 2011 Everyone!
