what if...

what if you just did it your own way?  
no rules, no right or wrong, just what you think is beautiful?

i have noticed that a lot of creatives choose a word to focus on for the new year.  there are so many words though...i can't decide on just one.  is that a flaw perhaps?  i'll admit, i've never been very decisive. 
instead of choosing a word, i've chosen a quote.  i wrote it out in my journal as a reminder to myself.  to try and create in this way.  to not get caught up in thinking that it has to be done a certain way.  to stretch and grow and experiment.  to not get hung up on thinking about how someone else might like it or what might sell.  to simply follow my heart and create what i think is beautiful.  in the past i've noticed that when i did manage to follow this path, what resulted was usually something wonderful, something that i absolutely loved.  and of course, that is very satisfying.  so, there you have word quote for the year.


  1. I love love love that ink painting. and that quote. I saw the word of the year thing...and so my word is "pajama" because you know, they are soft and comfy :D :D

  2. i love your word...pajama! that makes me smile : )

  3. I see Brave smiling at me, when I read this quote! ;D Happy Weekend to you-

  4. I agree .... I too struggle to find a word, but how I do love your quote of the year, and may just have to borrow it. Your journal is beautiful, and I am happy to have stopped by for a visit.
