Start: to begin or set out, as on a journey or activity.

I’ve been meaning to blog for quite a while now. Let’s just say the whole idea started as a 2009 resolution (yep that’s right last year..oops). The idea is that blogging would help me grow personally, to have deadlines, accountability and of course, an ongoing record documenting…well…life. So with all these great reasons why did it take me so long to start?

Well, the problem for me is and always has been starting. I have this idea that if I can’t start perfect I don’t want to start at all. Several sketchbooks are still waiting for my “perfect” ideas. The pressure I put on myself to fill the beautiful blank pages with nothing less than my full potential prevents me from sketching at all. Which of course, means I never will reach my full potential. This pattern follows me in pretty much everything I do. The funny thing is that once I have started I don’t think much more of it, it just becomes something I do.

For 2010 the resolution isn’t so much about blogging as it is about beginning, setting out, being on a journey. I will sketch, I will blog and hopefully I will make lots of mistakes because that means I have started.
