New Year New Glow

HAPPY NEW YEAR YA'LL! A new glow for all of us. Saturn is in Capricorn, and New York is going through a wild winter. Quite the powerful time. 

I spent the last of my year with my family and friends, and then spent most of the first week by myself. I took a two week vacation from my job, and spent one half with family, and kept another all for myself. I'm forever dreaming of creative retreats, and I thought this would be the perfect time for that. But you know, life is humorous, and my apartment is very cold, and my plans didn't go as I thought. Turns out that more than making, what I needed was to really step back and remind myself why I'd event want to make. I have so many goals, and they involve time and effort and sweat, and why am I going so hard again? And how exactly do I plan to do all this?

I’ve definitely become more grounded, and I’m way more focused on my creative work, but I really don’t feel that I have it as together as young me imagined. And yet, I've built and I've used my fire, and the messiness has turned out to be very important in all this.
