because you have to start somewhere…

Last week I was putting together a list of resolutions (who says they need to be ready on the first?). I got a bit carried away and it starting looking more like a some crazy mathematical graph – no joke, here’s a picture:

I decided there was no sense in getting organized this way and thought that instead I would take advantage of my birthday being so close to the new year. Since my not-so-nifty tree chart already has so many ideas on it I’ve decided to a do a birthday resolution list.

I’ve followed many other people doing this online and love the idea that it keeps you accountable and provides motivation to accomplish your goals. Check out these wonderful ladies:

I also freaking LOVE this book created by Elise Blaha Cripe. Maybe next year I can make something that beautiful, but for now I need to finish this list before my birthday (countdown 4 days).

In the meantime I got a jumpstart on one of my resolutions already! (Is it cheating to start early? Don’t know. Who cares.)

Work goal: Take more breaks (Don’t worry, I work super hard, so this is deserved!)

The other day Lulu took her first dance class (squee!) so I had my camera in my car. Not wanting to leave my most expensive possession in the car I brought it inside to my cubicle.

Later in the afternoon I took a break and starting taking some pics of my work space:

I even stepped outside to take pictures of my nails. Pretty nice, ?:

I think some co-workers saw me and probably think I’m a little weird. If going outside of an office to stand in some January sun snapping photos of my awesome new nail polish is weird then, yes. I am weird.

Taking 10 minutes out of my workday to do something creative really made me feel good… I think the sunshine helped, too. Let’s keep this on the permanent to-do list, ok?

So I’m off to complete my birthday list and provide a blow-by-blow of my progress. Some of the items on there will be fun, educational, WEIRD but most definitely creative. I can’t wait!
