2020 – Plans and Projects

I had regular goals for my blog for the last few years and that worked well for me. Here’s some of what worked well and what worked less well:

  • Art: I started the year with a bunch of painting and then moved to drawing a small sketch every single day, which resulted a new instagram account.
  • Like last year Everyday Magic and Weekly Reflection posts helped me stay connected to my goals, keep track of my intentions.
  • Stories from 2019 started out strong but around September I stopped scrapping for no real reason. Actually likely because I stopped taking photos. I have plans to go back to it all.
  • Reading – I read like mad this year. I joined netgalley and edelweiss and read 120+ books and listened to another 282 or so for a total of 402+.
  •  Moments of Gratitude: This also started out well and then fizzled out but I bought another journal for next year any way because I love it. I also ended up doing the OLW journal which I loved (alongside the OLW class itself.)

All in all, I feel pretty proud of 2019 and am looking forward to 2020. The format will be exactly the same cause it’s working for me right now.

  • Monday: Living Wild: This is the same as Everyday Magic posts I’ve been doing. I want to think purposefully each week and set goals, choices, projects for just that week. I try to write these on Sunday nights. These help me be more mindful. They will also help me identify ways in which i can embrace the wild a bit more that week.
  • Tuesday: Stories from 2020: My plan for 2020 is to take prompts from Ali’s Story Kits and write a story for each of them. I am thinking of possibly starting another instagram account for this one, too, but I am not sure yet. And then if i scrap, great, but if not, I have the stories.
  • Wednesday: Books This Week – I will talk about the books I read this week. This year, I will continue tracking them on goodreads.
  • Thursday: Joy of Art – I am going to continue to draw with the books for as long as it continues to be fun. I am also thinking of doing some projects like I’ve done in years past. Let’s see if I can pull it off.
  • Friday: Moments of Gratitude –  This is like last year focused on gratitude, and maybe a bit of the wild. We’ll see if i can make it happen better this year.
  • Sunday: Weekly Reflection: This, too, is the same as before. These posts help me to reflect on what worked and what didn’t work so I can set proper intentions for the following week.

Like in 2019, these are the only weekly projects I will commit to. And even these I might do more irregularly, we’ll see. These all mean something to me and I’d like to do them and I believe almost all are pretty doable. We’ll see what surprises 2020 has in store for me.

All of these might happen, none of them might happen. I might repeat projects. I might do wildly different things. I am giving myself grace while trying to keep myself motivated.

I’ve signed up for no classes this year. I’ve taken plenty in the past and still have many I haven’t done. I am keeping the Story Kit and signed up for OLW. That’s it for now.

Here’s to a wonderful 2020.  Here’s to doing more art. Here’s to making time to enjoy art. Here’s to learning new things. Here’s to practicing more. Here’s to reflecting. Being intentional. Creating a positive cycle. Here’s to going wild.
