In With the New…

January 2, 2013

Happy New Year! We’re officially launched into 2013 and I cannot wait to get started on my goals and resolutions! First and foremost, my fitness and health took a major backseat while starting up Spruce Collective but I really need to focus on getting back into shape. Less wine and cheese (a lot less!) and more daily exercise and sleep (a lot more!) starting today. I know that my energy and productivity will see a huge boost, much needed for the busy year ahead! I haven’t had time to really absorb the blur of the last few months but I really do need to sit down and reflect on it all. Opening a store was very likely the scariest/bravest/biggest gamble/craziest thing I’ve ever done but it has been such and unbelievably amazing experience already and I am so proud of myself and my four equally brave partners for taking the leap.  I came across this guide to setting goals for creative businesses over at Nicole’s Classes and think that it will be a great way to get some thoughts down on paper….

More one-on-one time with my husband and kids is also high on my priority list as well as more quality time alone with my thoughts…away from the computer! How about you? Do you set resolutions or goals for yourself each year? Feel free to share…sometimes saying them out loud helps me stick to my resolve a little better :)

Nice post!
Happy New Year!
My new year resolution is to trust my instincts more. I’ve learned a lot in the last 6 years and I’ve finally realized that if you want a job done well – you have to do it yourself.
I’m stoked for 2013 – spent the last 3 months preparing and now I’m raring to go!
Bring it on!
All the best to you and the store. I promise I’ll visit soon!

This is the kind of info I look for when reading blogs. Thanks, Lily for showing so many places for inspiration over the past year …… I’m off to look at Nicole’s blog and get some insight, always welcome. Spending quality time alone from the computer is one of the best things you can do for yourself, for sure. Happy New Year Lily.

Happy New Year, Lily! I’ll be sitting down over the next couple days and looking at what I hope to accomplish over the next year. Getting back to the gym is on my list for sure. I’m also hoping to get back into drawing and painting, something I’ve dabbled in over the years. We shall see how it goes. ;) Wishing you (and the Spruce Girls) all the best in 2013!
