Resolution Countdown 2012: Creative Expression

I love artistic expression, however you wouldn't know it because there is never any time to sit and color, or paint, or make collages or anything.  I am always rushing here and there.  I am always shuttling children from this place to that place.  By the time I end my day, all I want to do is be still.

I have to manage my time to get in the things I deem important to my overall well-being.  I gotta get my art on!  I am no artist by any stretch of the imagination (or maybe I am...we are what we say we are), and I am moved by creating something uniquely mine.  There is something very liberating about creating something by letting my imagination have free reign.  I have over the years built up a nice treasure trove of art stuff... pencils, paint, brushes, markers, paper and crafting materials.  I am ready.  I have created some pieces that I think are FABULOUS!  Now if only I had more time to make them and perfect them.

My resolution for 2012 is to pursue more artistic expression.  To make time to sit and craft and make things purely for art.  Purely to satisfy my inner artist's desire.  2012 is the year I am going to balance responsibilities with whimsical pursuits of fancy.  Meaning all work and no play makes Babz DULL! 

The landscape of my life calls me to look out further...beyond the horizon.  I have always known the kind of woman I want to become, she is coming into focus as the years fly by.  It is astounding to me, the sound of my own voice and the beat of my heart.  It is time to go my own way.  I am in deed an artist and my life is my canvas.

Yes, I think the we all are what we say we are... the issue then becomes whether or not we are willing to work towards our potential...
