My Goal in 2012

Here is my one goal for 2012. I was working on a list of goals/resolutions and realized they all kind of had to do with the fact that I let self doubt get in my way all the time. So this is my year to follow the advice of the great Kanye West.

I also read a great post by Amy Morby about resolutions. She said don't make resolutions that make you feel guilty, or are inspired by things you hate about yourself. Make resolutions that will add something to your life!

So this year I want to do at least 2 creative projects a month. I used to make stuff all the time, but I let that stupid self doubt get the best of me, and I stopped. But I had so much fun making those ornaments and wreath last month, I really want to make time for stuff like that regularly.

I think 2012 is going to be an incredible year.


  1. That's awesome, Rae! I am trying not to make "resolutions" but goals this year. I love that Kanye quote! It's perfect. I also love this Neil Gaiman NYE Benediction.

    "May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

    …I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."

  2. Go for it honey give it all you've it. May 2012 be a wonderful year or you.

  3. "but I let that stupid self doubt get the best of me"

    I feel like I've seen this get the best of you a billion times over. You're a special ray of sunshine, my dear. Don't let the voices in your head tell you otherwise. Seize the day!

  4. love it love it love it. and a seriously excellent resolution!
