Old Year’s demotivation

Christmas has come and gone and now it’s counting down to the New Year. I realized a strange phenomenon with myself.

I have a big case of “Old Year’s demotivation”.
I would define it as not feeling like moving forward, I will just “start over” in the new year.

The cure of course is “doing it anyway”. I’ve made some progress, or rather I received a Christmas gift from my parents!
That is, a box for storing my sewing supplies! I slightly changed its original idea and pulled out the trays with little containers and putting those in a drawer of my sewing dresser and stuffing the box with left over fabric.

So now my sewing stuff is all organized, I just need to start making patterns and start sewing! My goal is to make at least four plush toys in 2013. So one every three months.

In terms of fitness I signed up for an introductory climbing course! It’ll be held on the 5th of January, so next week. I’m very excited about this! Yes I’m also a bit scared, but I feel this is a great opportunity to work through my fear and to push and experience what I’m capable of when turning my back on fear and “doing it anyway”.

I have a feeling 2013 is going to be a great year, but that it wouldn’t be possible without the work I did this year. All valleys aside, I think I’ve seen some pretty great mountains past year!

New focus, new plans, new life?

As you all were probably aware of, I’ve been gone. Let me give you a quick update!

I mentioned the Whole30 challenge in my previous official post. Guess what? I’ve started the official Whole30 challenge on August 6th! Today marks my half way point. Today is day 15. I’ve followed the rules 100% and it’s quite an experience so far! I will give you the final results at the end.

I may have stumbled on a passion too. For an upcoming convention I wanted to go in costume. So my friends helped me, by teaching me to sew and etcetera. Turns out, I’m really liking this and seem to have some natural insight. I’ll definitely be developing this! Yesterday I had also a lot of help from my grandma, and she was really pleased with my interest I guess.

I guess a lesson I’m pulling from this:

Passion can be hiding in an unexpected corner. Don’t always try to search for it. Sometimes it will come to you naturally.

Hope you all have a great week!!
