Some people start thinking about New Year's resolutions in November, or December; I've always noticed that summer brings change. Maybe it's a cycle that gets imprinted during our school years when we all get a break to go off and return as someone else. We've grown and made choices about the person we want to be without the constant reinforcement of who we are to other people. Maybe we've taken a trip...maybe it's just all the sunshine.
I read this the other day:
“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”
~ Harold Thurman Whitman
What a perfect summer resolution!
...I might add that a sketchbook/journal would make a perfect companion. Take a peek at Diana Trout's blog for some excellent ideas.
