In 2013, I decided to complete 52 handmade projects by year’s end, then added to that a goal to read 52 books. It has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself in a long time. 2013 ended up being harder than I expected. My projects, and my reading, shined a light in times of sadness and disappointment, giving me ways to cope with those feelings productively.
In 2014, I want to take my goals a step further. I don’t want it to be just a way to cope, but a way to grow. I want my efforts to take me further, make me better than I have been. I hope to take that little light that kept me going in the sad times, and let these goals be a mirror that will multiply that light.
