Sunday Scribblings #248~Progress

If it is to be, It is up to me.
- William H. Johnson

Happy New Year everyone!

First prompt of 2011, "progress".

I have spent the last few days reading more and will be finished with two books by tomorrow. Book one: Get Off Your "But": How to End Self-Sabotage and Stand Up for Yourself and Book 2: Devotion of Suspect X.

I have started juicing again. So every morning I am back to drinking a green juice. It feels so good to have that energy boost again. I also added a new green to my juice this morning and used broccoli.

The above two were from my Manifesto that I posted on last weeks Sunday Scribblings.

I have also added to the list I have created for myself.

This year I need to add to the vision/dream/creative inspiration board I created last year. It looks awful bare and needs a lot of love and attention.

I also want to be more artistic. So, I am going to take classes as well as try some new things on my own.

On the 31st I bought myself a spanking new journal, with nice crisp, lined pages. I have been waking up before everyone else and doing my morning pages from the book The Artist's Way (I attempted last year and never completed).

I also purchased a new sketch book and opened a few books on my shelf that were given to me as gifts and have never worked with. SARK's: Make Your Creative Dreams Real: A Plan for Procrastinators, Perfectionists, Busy People, and People Who Would Really Rather Sleep All Day and 52 Projects : Random Acts of Everyday Creativity

Progress feels good. It is even inspires me to delve deeper and keep the momentum of the progress I am making.

I wish everyone success in the progress they are choosing for in their lives. All the best in 2011.


  1. Keep on going! Shall take a look at some of those books..Jae

  2. It sounds like you are off to a good start for the new year!

  3. Sounds like you're already off to a great start! I have SARK's book, Juicy Pens and Thirsty Paper. She's inspiring!

  4. Good luck with the sketching, especially if you can manage some "you" time by yourself without time constraints to let yourself go and get absorbed by the scenery, buildings, people or whatever you are observing.

  5. Good luck! There is such an endless vessel inside us! Wish I knew that years ago....explore it all!!
    Happy New everything!!!

    Hugs Giggles

  6. Good resolutions. Best regards...

  7. You are so right: Real progress feels good!

  8. You have made a great start! I love 'The Artist's Way'.

  9. I have given up making resolutions I just do it whenever something needs to be resolved :)
